Spacing of guide holes in the 3-hole Kreg Pocket Hole Jig?

I saw a close-up view of the 3-hole guide in one of the videos, so I stopped the picture in the middle of the close-up and using a scale on the screen measured the diameter of one of the 3/8" guide holes (0.8") and then the large space (1.85"), small space (1.3") and overall space (3.05"), and from this information I decided the large space is actually 7/8", the small space 5/8" and the overall space 1 1/2". I couldn't find the specification of these dimensions anywhere, so I'm still not sure these are correct dimensions. If anyone has the kit that contains the 3-hole guide jig, I'd really like to know the actual spacing.
Thanks,
Chuck.

I have the jig, but never cared to measure them.
When I need one hole, I use the center opening. When I need two, I use the outside holes. Since you're I'm not making a mating piece, I haven't run into a situation where some sort of precision spacing is necessary, like it would be when doweling. Maybe someone else has...
If I remember, I'll measure it next time I've got it out.

Right, and I'm sure that's the reason why Kreg never pins it down on their website - - but sometimes you might need to buy stock that's compatible with tooling, so knowing tooling dimensions could be useful. Also it's worthwhile to know what the manufacturer decides is a useful spacing for a couple of fasteners into a 2x2 for adequate strength, which is one way to interpret the 7/8" spacing. Thanks for your comment.

I just measured my fixture and the large spacing is indeed 7/8", but the smaller spacing is 9/16". Hope this helps.

We I guess I have a gloat. I'll just be making my pocket holes one at a time with my single head Marcom pocket machine I got for $400!!! (Thanks craigs list) Just like this one and in brand new shape, extra bits and on casters. http://tinyurl.com/6jx3ha
Be sure to expand the pics.

A $1700 machine for $400??
That's a deal!

Yes, it looks great sittinmg next to my Ritter 911 oscillating 108" belt edge sander. This sander looks brand new, is something over $3k new and I got it for $500 from a sad victim of the down turn, an entire cabinet shop, one of many I see on craigs these days, being liquidated for pennies on the dollar.
At least the pocket machine was available because it was replaced by a near new Castle pocket machine at a local shop. Even though that guy got the Castle for $900 from somebody else who went out of bus.
The Marcom is not quite as nice as the Castle type pocket machine. The Castles have a router and a drill and put the screw in at 7 degrees which minimizes the uplift forces when screwing compared to the Kreg 15 degree. The Marcom has the pneumatic hold down but uses a stepped drill just like a Kreg and I assume its 15 degrees also, haven't checked.

"Morris Dovey" made a provocative statement to me

Uhhhhhh....., Morris, it wasn't me who bought the machine.
But my wife says I have good technique.

Yes, that's the answer I was looking for. Thanks, Les.
I also found that McFeely's shows the spacings in the description of the K4 kit, but I haven't seen any other place that does. Their description also shows the K4 kit includes the dust collection attachment, but the Kreb website doesn't - - oh, well - - that's progress. If they can confirm that McFeely's kit has the dust thing (maybe due to old stock), that may be a good place to buy it.
