Thanks for everyone's advise. The machine wasn't like the Porter Cabl
552 or the stationary Kreg machine. I guess I'll have to see if my ol
employer still has his shop and and running.
The machine I'm looking for is more like a router motor that pivots i
a frame - as it pivots downward it cuts the pocket while a clampin
mechanism built into the machine holds the piece of the face-frame tha
is being cut in position. The pilot hole is then bored manually, bu
the tool acts as a guide to get the hole in the right spot.
By the way, there is a stationary Kreg pocket hole machine ebay righ
now...no affiliation, yada yada yada.
Sorry I missed the original question. I believe you're talking about a
Porter-Cable model 550. I have a couple of pictures of one at my
website in the Norm's Tools section
They show up on ebay every once in a while.
