Porter-Cable almost always makes good tools but having seen this one in action, it seems almost over engineered. For Pros doing hundreds of pocket holes a day, 5 days a week, it will work very well but for "the rest of us" it seems over kill.
Looks more like a camera than any tool for woodworking.  Maybe they are taking photos for  plot maps to figure out where to put the pocket holes, you think?  They will have to do better than this to beat Kreg Tools even if it is intended for the big shops boring numerous holes an hour, Kreg still has them beat by reliable tooling in the form of air clamped and drill powered multiple hole per seconds machines and not something that I would be embarrassed to have in my shop. 
You got me, I saw it in Woodcraft yesterday morning, has a price tag around $200. 
From what I can tell the things main claim to fame is an automatically setting depth stop based on the material thickness. Not worth $200 to me, maybe to some.
If you go to You Tube they give a demo how it works  after watching it I would of bought it  but I will stick to to my Kreg !!!!

Porter-Cable makes some great tools, for the industry.

Don't knock it, if you haven't tried it.

 

Speaking of over-kill---

one doesn't need a semi-trailer truck, when a pickup truck will suffice.

 

 

Porter Cable's pocket hole jig while a good tool is overpriced and over complicated for a simple pocket hole joint.

I have many Porter cable tools, but this is not on my list. Kreg did it right!

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
