I had a need to make a small size pocket hole in a small width rail for a job I’m currently working on,
my kreg jig and harbor freight jig uses the large auger bits, so it woulod not work for this application
here is where my shop built pocket hole jig came to the rescue, it was a project I designed and built
in my machine shop that uses regular jobber drills for the shank and countersunk screw head for
the common shop drywall screws.

Here is a demonstration of how well this jig worked in this pinch.

Hi, thankyou for the nice compliment.

This tool was designed and built off of a previous concept, of making
a pocket hole jig for drywall screw use.

I made a system out of wood blocks
that allows regular jobber drills to be used for the shank and countersunk
head of drywall screws in small size applications.

The instructional video of building this system can be found here.

Have your say...
