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.

  • 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

The Kreg Foreman pays for itself
As the owner of a small scale production woodshop, This machine has taken one the most time consuming and tedious parts of building chairs and turned it into a breeze.
I wish I had pulled the trigger on this machine sooner.
What was once a dreaded task is now a non-factor in the build process

Great time saver!
Did not realize how many pocket holes I had been using on projects. After I started using this thing, I found I was saving quite a bit of time in not having to clamp and move stuff around. Wish I had added this to my shop previously.

Great machine
Yes it’s expensive, but it makes very quick work of pocket holes. After using it for a couple projects, I’m so happy I bought it. No more tired hands and sore wrists from tightly gripping the drill when drilling pocket holes!

Buy it!
I have a small custom cabinet shop and the foreman was perfect for me. It has been running like a champ for about 2 years now with zero issues... Until yesterday. The machine would work as normal a til you started to push the handle down then it would cut off. I contacted kreg directly and they said this was a known issue with a wire at the handle that has a stress point. They offered to replace the entire machine and it received it the next day... No joke. Literally less than 24 hrs later.
I love kreg. I wish more companies operated like this!

Amazing Tool
Nothing beats pocket holes for quick, accurate, and strong joinery. It is by far the fastest means of joining two pieces of wood together creating a rock-solid connection.

And nothing beats putting pocket holes in panels, stiles, and rails like this incredible tool. Fast, reliable, dust-free, and super accurate for repeatable pocket holes, I only wish I had bought it years ago. Has easily paid for itself in time saved in a few short weeks.

Jan O on Jul 3, 2016
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.

Kreg reputation for good products.

Work great on a large job , highly recommended
TOOLS S on Aug 23, 2015
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.

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.
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
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
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,
