Operation – Kreg DB210 Foreman Pocket-Hole Machine User Manual
In addition to the proper machine settings, proper spacing of pocket
holes in the workpiece is important for making a strong joint. For
narrow parts such as rails, stiles and frames, locate pocket holes ⅜" to
½" from each edge. Shaded lines on the measuring tape indicate this
offset, eliminating the need to mark pocket-hole locations. Simply align
the edge of your workpiece with the shaded line and drill. For wide
parts such as panels and table tops, place the first pocket hole 2" from
the edge and every 6" on center after that.
A workpiece stop can be used on either side of the drill guide by
sliding it out of the fence T-slot, flipping it over so the open end
of the stop arm faces center, and reinstalling it in the T-slot.
Loosen the socket-head bolt on the workpiece stop (32) with the
3mm hex wrench (13), slide the stop to the desired location, and
tighten the bolt. Keeping the fence (16) centered side to side allows
you to use the center-reading measuring tape (33) to position the
stops. Override a stop by placing the workpiece over the stop,
pressing the spring-loaded stop arm into the stop body.
Each stop arm can be held in the retracted position by pressing
the arm into the stop body and then sliding it toward the socket-
head bolt that secures the stop in the fence. The notch in the arm
provides a grip point. To reactivate the stop arm, slide it away from
