I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.

The only complaints that I have seen is that the base is molded plastic, but at a $400 price-point ($360 with a coupon from Acme), it's $700 cheaper than any other pocket hole machine you can find.

Dust collection when hooked to a Vac is perfect, no dust.

I cut pocket holes in 22 base cabinet sides and 22 upper cabinet sides, 4 pocket holes each to attach the face-frames to and it seemed to only take minutes to get this done, at least 170 pocket holes.  This was done obviously before the cabinet was completed, the Foreman supported the sides just fine, there was no fear of tipping.

This may not be a tool that everyone needs for small projects, but if you're building any sort of cabinetry or your hands hurt from using the drill, this tool is a must have, it's solid and a time saver for sure.  It has saved me hours just on this build.  The Foreman gets 5 stars from me!

I use the Porter Cable 20V and the Dewalt 20V, they both work very well, the P.C. have always been my go to drills for sure. 

I have build quite a few kitchens and I don't know why I waited so long to buy the Foreman.

I found a long time ago the best way to use the K5 is with a corded drill. If I have more than just 4-6 holes to drill I put the battery drill away. And that 20v Porter Cable with the 4amp battery is a hole drillin tool! The corded drill to me seems to help with that hand fatigue. But I don't drill 170 holes at a time either. lol

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…
