A jig with a few new moves

Kreg 300-Series Pocket-Hole Jigs

Kreg’s new 300-series pocket-hole jigs will please beginners and experienced woodworkers alike. As with earlier models, this new jig works perfectly well in its standard, two-hole configuration. What’s new is that the parts can separate and be used independently. The modular design allows you to slip a fully functional jig into a tool belt, or sneak a pocket screw into a tight space for an on-site repair. For larger projects, users can join multiple guides and spacers (sold separately)

together to create custom multi-hole drilling jigs. 

The 320 kit includes two drill guides, each with a material-thickness stop and anti-slip base, a hex wrench with a built-in thickness gauge, and a universal clamp adapter. My favorite improvement is the easy-set drill bit and stop collar. The stepped bit now has standard dimensions engraved on its shank, and comes with a windowed stop collar to make bit setup stone simple.
