I think the pocket screws are more useful.:laughing:
I use them for everything. Mostly face frames. Joining wooden countertops together instead of pull bolts. Attaching toe kicks to cabinets, making jigs and anytime I need a 90º joint that has only one side exposed. In combination with glue and biscuits it makes for a quick strong joint. I like'em. I'd like the get the Kreg Foreman pocket holer to speed things up. But $800 is a lot of ching.
I use em all the time. I made my mother in law a couple of small bookshelves and used it throughout. Looking at them sitting on the floor they look fine but turn them upside down and they look like swiss cheese. Everything was joined together with carefully placed pocket screws.
I hate pocket holes, I hate the look of them, I hate the setup, I hate that the parts are hard to line up. I think a biscuit joiner is the better tool--no exposed joinery method. Looking like Swiss cheese doesn't--for me--make fora professional look.
