Will Cheap Pocket Hole Jigs Do The Job?
Hi there, Everyone:
I hope to do some joints for 2 X 3s with miter cuts for a free standing clothing rack, as well as some butt joints for other projects, and I was wondering if the inexpensive Pocket Hole Jigs that I see on ebay will be ok.
What are the main differences between the expensive jig systems (like the Kreg Master system, which sells for about $140 on ebay), and the less expensive jig systems that sell for around $25 on ebay?
Oh, and one other question; Why do some of the high-end pocket jig systems have a vacuum attachment? Does drilling the pilot hole create so much dust / shavings that you need to clean out the hole before drilling in the pocket screws?
