Pocket holes provide a fast, easy and reliable way to assemble your projects.When you work with thin stock, less than ¾” thick, you’ll get better pocket hole results by using a jig that’s scaled to the size of your material. That’s where Kreg’s Micro-Pocket Jig comes in. The holes you’ll drill with the Micro-Pocket Jig are 33% smaller than standard pocket holes. That makes them perfect for thin stock, and also a better choice for material that’s prone to splitting, like narrow pieces.

It’s modular

Look closely at the jig. It’s made up of three drill guides. The cool thing about this is that you can separate the drill guides from each other. That means you can connect all three guides, use two of them, or use only one. A single drill guide can be really handy for doing repairs or drilling pocket holes in confined spaces.

Clamp it, or…

The jig comes with a clamp pad, so you can use a face frame clamp to hold it in place. If you run into scenarios where you can’t use the clamp, the guides can be screwed to the work surface.

Setting bit depth

Getting the stop collar on the drill bit in the right spot couldn’t be easier. The collar has a window in it, and the drill bit is marked at the ½” and ¾” positions. Just position the window over the correct measurement and lock the collar in place.

Other pocket jigs

Kreg makes a lot of pocket hole jigs, like the 520 Pro and 720 Pro, and there’s sure to be one to fit your needs.
