Drill for pocket hole screws

I was able to just recently get started building some stuff.  Had my kreg jig about a year before I was able to really use it.  My other projects with it has been few and far between.  I built a kitchen island and noticed that the big 18v drill i had ran into problems with me final assembly.   Are the 12v lithium drills good for installing the pocket screws.  I got a Milwaukee corded drill and love it for drilling the pocket holes because the 18v didnt make clean holes and battery died pretty…See More

Jerrod;

Some Vacuums have this feature built in like Festool I have a old Rigid that has it built in to the vacuum. I also have a couple of other units that are just like a plug block you plug you're vacuum then you're drill into the unit then you plug the block into the wall when you start the drill it will start the vacuum then the vacuum stays on for about 30 seconds after you stop the drill, the one you might want to check is the Craftsman unit.
