Default Pocket hole drill bit guide

I seen this and thought what a great addition this would be for my Kreg pocket hole jig .
Looks simple enough to make, even a caveman could do it

I am not a cave man. That does look like a nice jig to have. Mine has it built into the pocket hole jig but it isn't as good as yours and I bet yours is easier to use. Thanks for the tip.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Thanks Rick. I might have to make one. When I modified my jig, part of the drill bit adjustment guide got covered up.

I might have to double check my PH jigs. IIRC, the 2 holer you clamp to the work piece has different guidelines marked for the bit depth adjustment vs the K4 PH jig.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

I like this. If I ever get heat in my shop I might just have to make myself one.

Great idea. I think unfolding and folding my instruction sheet is bound to fail eventually. Tightening the collar can sometimes make it shift, which would be much less trouble with a jig like that.

One more thing to add to my should build list. That list just seems to keep growing.

Same here . I haven't built one yet , just seen this pic and thought it was a great idea .
I think I'd just glue the dowel in place at the appropriate location ?
Either that or router each slot the perfect length , but I think that may be hard . Maybe something John or Scott could build with there cnc easy enough .
But ideally I think the KISS rule applies , but I'd drill a little hole and have a storage location for the Allen key though also .

Ok I didn't realize that he embedded a magnet to hold the Allen key . At least I think that's what he did ? If so that's a nice addition

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate
