In the pocket: new generation Kreg launched

Comments Comments


In 1986 while building kitchen units for his home, Craig Sommerfeld, a tool and die maker, wanted a better way of securing his face frames from inside the cabinet. He came up with a U-shaped piece of aluminium with an angled insert which allowed him to accurately and repeatably drill shallow, diagonal, concealed pocket holes. ‘Craig’s Jig’ was born and later became the well known Kreg Jig.

The Pocket-Hole Jig 720PRO is Kreg’s latest innovation in pocket-hole joinery, and offers faster builds than ever. It’s currently selling for $289 from Carbatec. This jig features Automaxx™ one-motion clamping, which automatically clamps and sets the material thickness setting for pieces ½" (12.7mm) to 1½" (38.1mm) thick.


The included docking station transforms the 720PRO into the ultimate benchtop workstation. You can use the material support wings (shown above) to work with longer pieces while the jig is secured with the pocket hole jig clamp.
