I really like the ability to work with a smaller drill bit and 1/2 inch plywood. There is only one negative, but there is a "work-a-round". 1/2 inch plywood is actually about 7/32. Using this tool resulted in exit holes "off-center" and close to the edge. Drill angle seemed too low. I ran some tests shimming the workpiece about 3/16 (elevation) and things worked out fine. Perfect center exit. (this is with the jig base flush). I use the jig with my home built jig support. I gave it only 3 stars because of the vague responses by Kreg to the exit question (from other users). Also, it would be nice to have a 6 X 7/8 inch screw. I would recommend the jig to anyone. Very well made, very solid.

The Micro Pocket Drill Guide is another GREAT product from Kreg. They do an awesome job and I'm very glad Rockler carries their products. I can order online and have the products delivered the next day. This saves me a forty mile trip to the nearest store that carries Kreg products. Keep up the good work at Rockler!!!

Firstly, the KregMicro Pocket Drill Guide does all that is advertised. That said, there are limitations involved - primarily with the use of the Panhead screws which do have a grated tendancy to pull through or split the thinner stock if you are not very careful. As others have mentioned the inability to use the Right Angle clamp is also a problem for those of us who find the clamp useful maybe a new clamp for the Micro Guide. Definitely worth the money if you are into Poket hole joinery.

I used this product to make drawers for a TV storage unit I was building. It worked fantastic for the 1/2" drawer stock that I used. It takes a few more minutes to put a set of drawers together but they are much more durable, and I know that they won't pull apart later. This is a great addition for my Kreg pocket hole jig.Thanks for the speedy delivery. They came the morning I was starting to build the drawers.

I've used my K3 jig for years and just love it for easy and strong joints. But could never get it to do joints for drawers easily. So, when I saw this product I bought one. What a big disappointment! I tried it on 2 different thickness of wood, true 2" pine & 12mm birch pine with no luck getting strong joints. I tried Kreg's instructions for 1" screws and for 3/4" screws with no luck on either. The joint was weak and tips of screws stuck out. Also, couldn't use any of my pocket hole clamps, Rocklers or Kregs, because of the smaller diameter hole. I'll go back to box and/or dovetail joints for drawers.
