Porter-Cable recently introduced the Quikjig Pocket Hole Joinery System (model 560), a heavy-duty bench-top tool solution for pocket hole joinery. The new tool features an unique design that is easy to use and sets up quickly for accurate and repeatable results.

The patent-pending auto-adjusting depth and thickness gauge is the key to the new tool’s performance. Unlike existing models, woodworkers don’t have to calculate drilling angles based on the material thickness. The Quikjig features an innovative “feeler” gauge that does this automatically, setting the drilling angle when the board is placed in the tool. Simply set a width stop, insert and clamp the material in the jig and drill the hole. Once the board has been inserted, a handy on board screw gauge indicates the proper length of screw to be used to help prevent breakthrough of the work piece.

The Quikjig features all metal construction to minimize deflection during use and increase the tool’s durability. An extra tall casting offers material support for all types and sizes of wood. The 1-1/2-inch thick base casting is the same height as a 2-inch by 4-inch board, allowing easy outrigger support for longer material. A repeatable clamp handle enables fast and consistent clamping, even for material with varying thickness. The Quikjig is also outfitted with a pre-drilled base that enables easy mounting on a workbench or trouble-free clamping to virtually any table surface. The tool comes equipped with a rear-dust collection port for easy clean up. This removable dust port can be used with or without a vacuum.

The Quikjig Pocket Hole Joinery System includes multiple accessories, including one 6-inch square drive bit, one 3-inch square drive bit, one drill bit, and one drill bit depth collar, for a wide range of joinery projects. A 6-inch clamp for assistance when fastening boards together, a hex key for drill bit collar adjustments, and 100 screws round out this product’s accessory list.
