HUXLEY, IA -- Kreg Tool Co., a leading manufacturer of tools and accessories for woodworkers and do-it-yourselfers, is proud to announce the launch of the Foreman Professional-Grade Pocket-Hole Machine (Item# DB210). This innovative new machine offers the features of Kreg professional-quality machines at a consumer-friendly price, which allows users to create perfect pocket holes twice as fast as using a standard pocket-hole jig—with half the effort.

The all-new Foreman offers features previously available only on Kreg industrial pocket-hole machines, such as a built-in 110-volt electric motor, single-handle control, and an adjustable fence system. At a price of only $399.99 (U.S.), though, the Foreman sells for less than half the price of its predecessor, making it easy to afford for a wide range of users including woodworkers, cabinet shops, contractors, and dedicated do-it-yourselfers.

This dramatic increase in speed and reduction in effort is possible thanks to the Foreman’s simple three-step operation: 

 

The Foreman also offers unprecedented versatility. It works with materials from 1/2"- to 11/2"-thick, and it’s the first Kreg pocket-hole machine that can create all three types of Kreg pocket holes: Standard, Micro-Pocket, and HD (Heavy Duty).

The Foreman comes with the Standard bit. The Micro and HD are available separately. Thanks to a quick-change chuck on the drill motor, swapping bits is easy.

Working with large boards and panels is easy with the Foreman, too, thanks to its large 14" x 231/2" cast-aluminum table. The table, along with a sturdy molded base, also keeps the weight of the Foreman down to about 20 pounds. That makes it perfect for use in the shop, around the house, and on the job site. Built-in storage keeps bits and accessories close at hand.

Combine all of these great features, and you have the all-new Kreg Foreman—the versatile, affordable solution for high-speed pocket-hole construction.

The Kreg Foreman will be available starting Aug. 1, 2014 for $399.99 (U.S.).
