Anyone who uses pocket holes occasionally will likely opt for a manual pocket hole jig, which can be had for around $100CAD. But, if you make cabinets on a regular basis, a pocket cutter machine is significantly quicker and more precise. Unfortunately they’re expensive, with the smallest models starting at around $1,700CAD – outside the budget for many self-employed and hobbyist woodworkers.
The new Castle 110 Pocket Cutter (an upgrade of the discontinued Castle 100) can be had for around $560CAD (shipped to Toronto). It bridges the gap between a manual pocket hole jig and a fully automated floor standing machine.
