  • Makes it easy to create pocketholes that are accurate and repeatable
  • Automatic Depth Control eliminates the need for charts and calculations when changing between material thicknesses
  • Variably spaced bushings make it easy to work with multiple pieces of stock
  • Integrated screw length gauge indicates the proper screw length needed for the material
  • Standard dust port and container works with Porter-Cable and other models of dust collectors and vacuums

Since the times of Ancient Egypt, pocketholes have been used as a simple and reliable means of joining two pieces of stock. Drilling pocketholes manually has traditionally been somewhat of a tedious task, especially if multiple holes are needed in a production type situation. With the 560 Quick Jig Pocket Hole Joinery System, Porter-Cable takes the hassle out of drilling pocketholes, and makes it easier to drill them accurately and repeatedly. The 560 is quick to set up and easy to use; it features a pre-set drill bit that needs no adjustment when changing material thickness, and the automatic depth control system eliminates the needs for complicated manuals and depth charts. The spacing of the pocket holes can be easily adjusted and the variable spaced bushing makes it easy to adjust the holes position. And clean up is a snap with an integrated dust port and container that are compatible with most standard dust collectors and extractors.

Overall Rating for Porter-Cable 560 Quick Jig Pocket Hole Joinery System
(based on 3 reviews)
Buy it. Works as great as good as it looks
By Papa from CA on February 25, 2012
The jig was very easy to set up and operate. The adjustable hole spacing is a big plus. It is very well constructed and solid. I had ordered the older model Kreg jig but received the new model with the clamp in the back from another company. After handling it for just a few minutes I quickly returned it and ordered this from Tools-Plus. There is no comparison between the Kreg and the Porter-Cable jigs. The Porter-Cable model is much more refined and has many little touches that make it a joy to use.

I was a little concerned about wood chips clogging up the mechanism as I don't have a shop vacuum setup to suck them out. It works fine and excess chips just fall out the back.

Completely adjustable, Automatically adjusts to different thickness of material, textured back secures material well, Well made and solid.
Nothing really. The adjustable stop is a little slow to change positions but this is a very minor quip.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Great tool!!

Porter Cable Pocket Hole Tool
By Gary from Shelton, WA on February 14, 2012
Out of the box it is very intimidating. It looks very complicated. You have to follow and therefore remember the instructions to use this tool. I am a handyman. Since I don't use it every day I need to re-read the instructions each time I use it. Many of the setting are set once and forget. But then I don't rmember which ones they are and I need to refer to the instructions again. For me it is overkill. For a cabinet shop it would be worth it weight in gold.
The quality of construction
It's simply too complex.
