What does a pocket hole jig do?

A Pocket Hole is an angled hole drilled into one board, which then allows you to drill a screw through to another board. The Pocket Hole Jig makes drilling the angled hole easy. Adjustable guides and stop collar bits help with the width and depth of your hole.

Likewise, people ask, how does a pocket hole jig work?

It works like this: You clamp the pocket hole jig onto your workpiece and drill angled holes with the special stepped drill bit. Then you simply align the two pieces to be joined and drive a pocket screw at an angle into the pocket to connect your pieces.

Furthermore, are pocket hole joints strong? The superior strength of a pocket hole joint has actually been proven. Independent testing found that a pocket screw joint failed at 707 pounds when subjected to a shear load while a comparable mortise and tenon joint failed at 453 pounds – meaning that the pocket screw joint was approximately 35% stronger.

Subsequently, one may also ask, do you need a pocket hole jig?

To toenail boards together without any pocket hole jig, just start drilling a hole downward to get it started, then tip your drill to angle it toward the other board. And without that flat shoulder and flat head of a pocket screw to draw the two pieces together, this joint is substantially weaker.

What are pocket holes good for?

Pocket hole jigs allow the user to drill a hole at an accurate angle to get a good joint. Using a pocket hole jig also makes for a cleaner and neater appearance as opposed to creating a pocket hole without the help of a jig.
