Built with both professionals and hobbyists in mind, the all-new DB210 Foreman Pocket Hole Machine is packed with features that will have you building with twice the speed and half the effort of a standard pocket-hole jig. It offers all of the same features and capabilities of our professional-grade machines in a machine that’s versatile, portable, and extremely affordable. Simply clamp your workpiece and pull the handle to start the powerful 110-volt motor and raise the drill bit through the table in one easy motion. This drills a precisely-placed pocket hole at the perfect depth in materials from 1/2'' to 1-1/2" thick. The Foreman DB210 features a tool-free adjustable fence that positions your workpiece for precise pocket depth, plus a pair of adjustable, spring-loaded stops for repeatable accuracy. Clear markings in the table make it easy to position the fence for your material thickness. Includes a standard 3/8'' Kreg stepped drill bit.



Features:
  • Single-step operation starts motor, clamps workpiece, and drills pocket holes
  • Creates all Kreg pocket-joint sizes: Standard, Micro, and HD
  • Lightweight, durable construction allows hassle-free transport—perfect for use in your shop or on-the-go
  • Large table with ample workspace
  • Built-in storage tray provides the perfect place to store extra bits and accessories
  • Dust collection attachment helps keep your work area clean
  • Powerful 110-V, 5.0-AMP, 2,800 RPM motor provides fast drilling
  • Quick-change chuck provides fast, tool-free bit changes
  • Also compatible with the Kreg Micro-Pocket™ Bit to create more compact pocket holes in thinner stock, and the Kreg HD (Heavy-Duty) Bit for creating strong joints in 1-1/2'' and thicker stock

Great machine
Motor fell off guide shafts and one shaft fell completely out of machine. Loose set screws when it arrived. After putting machine back together it worked like a charm. It’s a great tool now, works great and gets the job done in record time. Wish I had this tool years ago.

Excellent product
I have not had my Foreman very long but I have adjusted it for 3/4 stock and drilled several test holes. It seems very fast and accurate. I mounted mine on a planer stand in order to reduce the overall work height from normal work table height. I can roll it around wherever I want and roll it out of the way when not in use. I made a larger stand top from some melamine and it is best to cut a large hole beneath the drill if not using a dust collector. It appears it will work very well. It is much easier on my arthritic shoulders than handling a hand drill.

Best Money Spent for the Shop in a Long Time!
I have been using the Kreg pocket hole joinery for years and it is one of my favorite methods for certain types of joinery (typically for concealed joints). The Foreman takes this to the next level and then some. Speed, accuracy and ease with minimal set up or fuss.
I bought the Foreman for a large cabinet project and already got my money's worth! Because I knew I would be using some large pieces I went the extra mile and recessed it into one of my benches...well worth the trouble as the table is not that big and incorporating it into a bench helps with stabilizing the large pieces for drilling and speeds up production (see photo).

I used this foreman to put together a table top. It worked great but for pockets holes on the end of long pc I have not had any luck yet but I will continue to try. Bit adjustment seams to be a problem on thicker stock. Any help would be appreciated?

own 2 other kreg jigs good tools need to increase productivity
Michael K on Dec 22, 2015
This tool speeds up the pocket hole process and is really clean with the vacuum hose hooked up. I don't really make cabinets but for the things I do use pocket holes for this machine is great. I had the K5 but this foreman is just miles ahead when it comes to ease of use and speed.
Jack H on Nov 26, 2015
I had hundreds of pocket holes to drill. This has virtually no set up time and I have always loved my kreg tools
John S on Nov 13, 2015
Time saver - much faster than other Kreg pocket hole systems.

Wanted to try out the Foreman even though I don't have a compelling need for it. Very well-designed and easy to use. Makes drilling pocket holes much easier and faster especially on large panels and other wide workpieces.
GNWS on Aug 15, 2015
Bought to expedite making pocket holes. It did not work when bought due to poor plastic construction, (the arm would not fully depress due to misalign plastic hole) but it eventually wore away the plastic to where it now works fine.

Does the Kreg Foreman come with a 240 volt version?
Rohan S on Sep 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I was told that you have look at a European version, it is frustrating that I cannot but the product in Australia
Any news on Kreg Forman pocket hole machine re 240v version? Regards Rohan
Rohan S on Sep 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The forman is a huge time saver! Works great.
Biggest issue I have with it is with smaller pieces (2" and less). They tend to slide to the right, just a little. What happens when using with hard woods is the pilot point breaks off.
I am intending on making cabinets for my den out of 3/4 plywood and hardwood face frames. I will be using pocket holes to put the boxes together as well as face frames. How well will this tool work when using sheet goods, sizes may range in the area of 32" tall and various widths depending on the box size. I am concerned that the plywood panels may be too bulky to use this tool versus the K five.
gary c on Feb 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You should have no problem unless the 32" plywood is long. If that is the case make a temporary extension table to keep the panels flat. I have made cabinets with the forman using pieces as long as 8'. I am limited in my mobility because of medical problems and because of the forman I have been able to continue woodworking
Are you able to use 2x2s?
Lauren I on Jul 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Lauren,
You can use the Foreman for 2x2 material. You would use the settings for the 1 1/2 as that is the actual thickness.
Thank You,
