Parts of the Kreg 320

– The Kreg 320 pocket hole jig drill guide – The material thickness gauge – helps you measure the thickness of boards ranging from 1/2″ to 1 1/2″.  – Stepped drill bit with pre-marked common material thickness settings. – Stop collar 

Step 1: Measure Material Thickness

The thickness of the boards you are making pocket holes in is one of the most important things to note to ensure strong pocket hole joints.

Step 2: Set the Kreg 320 to Material Thickness

Use the material thickness and set it up on the jig using the two gray tabs on the back.

Step 3: Decide the Pocket Hole Spacing

The pocket hole spacing on the boards depends on their width. The great thing about the Kreg 320 is that you can easily change the spacing by twisting and separating the drill guides and spacers.
