Default Kreg Foreman

My latest tool purchase and I must say so far I love it. I had drilled over 6000 holes with my hand held Kreg and find myself using them more and more in cabinet construction.
I know some of the old timers don't like pocket screws but you have to stay competitive and they are fast and strong. I never use them where they can be seen.
The real time saver is no nail hole to fill and sand.

I've been looking at these since they were announced. Their website says they won't be available until August. How were you able to get one so early?

Sorry, I thought that was the new Foreman.

I was looking at the new one and ran across this used for $500. The new one looks like a good deal to me, although it has more plastic.

I'm envious. I wouldn't dare try and construct any cabinets. Too precise. The other half wants to construct boxes (jewelry And junk holders. I think it's just the obsessiveness over flow from when he was a kid )

I wanted one of those, but the price for a new one was out of my price range.

It has to be really nice, especially when drilling the larger cabinet pieces. I was always scratching my forearm (thin skin-blood thinners) when I would reach over/around the cabinet member to get to the clamp.

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

We've had the air operated one for several years now. It's drilled many thousand holes and not one problem. Sharp bits and oil are the only things it's needed. They save an extreme amount of time over the hand ones.
