Customer Reviews

Unfortunately, the quality and implementation of this jig is terrible.
He who review vacuum
The jig is also made of aluminum - I found metal shaving (from the sides of the jig) amongst the sawdust from the holes I drilled with the jig.
James A Griesser
The centerline of the jig does not line up with the centerline of the hole.

Color Name: Doweling Kit
Pay for the shipping and I'll send you mine! I've had it for 25 years, tried it several times. This thing is a joke. Almost all (99.999%) joints need two or more dowels - a proper machining fixture needs to locate the multiple holes without moving the jig so that the holes are exactly the same distance apart on the mating boards. So right off the bat, this CAN'T work. On top of that, the turret is sloppy and the drill guide holes are sloppy. The result is the holes just end up "wherever". You could do BETTER with a careful layout and a brad point drill bit - no kidding. Not exactly what you need, right? I can't believe they're now charging $35 for this thing. Save your money. Dowel Genie or DowelMax are the class of this field - VERY costly but they WORK. Grizzly and Rockler have middle ground jigs that are ok (but not perfect) for about this kind of $$.

Color Name: Pocket Hole
Borrowed a Krieg Jig to see if I liked it. Worked great. But, I could not understand why it is so expensive. There is really not much to it. Saw this Simp'l Products jig and decided to give it a try. It works great too. So, I just saved $100. An excellent tool for the money.

Color Name: Pocket Hole Verified Purchase
I had some projects that needed pocket hole screws so I thought I'd save some money and get this instead of the Kreg one that costs $125. Well the concept of this jig is simple enough, and it would be great if the drill bit was made from stronger material. After drilling about 12 pocket holes through MDF, the 1/8" tip broke off the bit. Without the bit this whole thing is useless. I tried to find out if there was any kind of warranty, but from what I could tell, this company doesn't even mention the word "Warranty". So since I plan on doing many more of these types of projects, I decided to step up to the plate and get the Kreg pro kit. It works great. Get an extra bit just in case though, cause without one your project comes to a screeching hault. So far my Kreg bit has drilled many more pocket holes without any problem.

Color Name: Doweling Jig Verified Purchase
I bought this set at the same time I bought the DowelMax system. Their is really no comparison between the two. If you are looking to make the occasional dowel, and don't mind doing extra steps to get the registration into the ball park, then this kit gives you a lot for a little bit of money. With the included brad point bits, the drill guides, and the dowel jig itself, gives you a volume of gear. It comes on a cardboard card with a shrink wrap plastic holding it on. If you are serious about woodwork, and want to create precision joinery, I highly recommend you to get the Dowelmax system.

Color Name: Doweling Kit Verified Purchase
This is a simple-enough tool to use, but use requires careful "sighting" of each hole to be drilled. I have had one, purchased through Sears, for probably 30 years. What I like about it, which makes the one-hole-at-a-time tediousness of the set up worth it, is: You can use stock of dissimilar thickness, yet have one "face" perfectly in alignment, so the "face" of a cabinet framed by dowling pieces together will be flush. This works if you get simple cabinet stock of different dimensions (say 1" x 2", 1" x 3", etc.) where the thickness are never the same. If you use a self-centering jig, the pieces will be parallel, centered on each other, and their "faces" slightly offset. I prefer to have all the offset on the inside of the cabinet , and have the fronts smooth and flush.
Adding: If you look at my youtube section, under OspreyD40, you can see a little film I made of a corner cabinet I built in 2008. The face structure, stiles to rails, was doweled together using my original Sears jig, that I've used on many projects. Works for me. The stock for the various pieces was of completely dissimilar thicknesses. As I noted originally, this jig lets me keep the front aligned, and the differences in thicknesses be at the rear, inside, where it matters little. I usually make everything with 5/8" dowels, for approximately 3/4" thick stock (nominal 1" x...). The jig hole for the 5/8" bit is tight, so the bit goes where I want.

Color Name: Pocket Hole
Whenever I see negative product reviews I usually lean towards operator error and I am willing to try them myself. I am very pleased I made that call here. Because school kids have the tendency to wreck the best and most durable equipment saving money and buying off brands is the norm. I have two of these in my school wood shop and they have both drilled close to a thousand holes. We have broke the 1/8" tips but I have broke those off of Kreg brands too. I think this happens more when the drill is not in use than actually drilling holes. I have not had any trouble with metal shavings and they are both still drilling perfect holes. I check the depth collar on the bits every time I get one of them in my hands. I believe that is the key to proper performance and the life span of the jig.
Kreg is definitely building a better product but the single set screw holding system is much easier for beginners to understand when we are changing lumber thickness versus the Kreg system.

Color Name: Doweling Kit
Regardless of how precisely you mark your intended hole location, line up the jig and crank it down, this jig does not hold the bit true. It allows the bit to move as well as drill at a slight angle. The result is that the wood you are joining does not line up and needs substantially more sanding than should be necessary with doweling. The revolving turret seems to be the weakest link in this product with the turret slide not far behind. I'm returning this product and will spend a little more money on a self-centering jig.
