Pocket holes provide a fast and easy way to create woodworking joints. The Kreg Foreman lets you create pocket holes SO fast. If you use pocket holes, you should look at this tool.

The specs

The Kreg Foreman works with material from ½” to 1-½” thick. The fence is easily adjustable to get the precise depth of your pocket holes. The Foreman is a 110-volt machine and includes an outstanding dust collection. At only 20 pounds, it’s effortless to move around.


Pocket holes tend to be a repetitive task. You’re probably not making one or two; you’re making a gazillion. Think of all the pocket holes in a kitchen full of face frames. The Foreman offers a couple things that simplify this. Markings on the table show you where to position the fence so it’s at the right spot for the thickness of the material you’re using. Two spring-loaded stops on the fence allow you to repeatedly and accurately position your material.

Going bigger or smaller?

If you’re consistently working with thin or thick material, add the Micro-Pocket Bit or Heavy-Duty Bit and the guides that go with them. The Micro bit is 19/64″ in diameter and great for thin (½”) material. The Heavy-Duty bit is ½” in diameter and is excellent for thicker stock.

Accurately cutting parts

We’ve also had a close look at Kreg’s Adaptive Cutting System. It’s excellent for accurately cutting your parts to size.
