I'm looking at using a Kreg Pocket Hole Jig to drill pocket holes into
pressure treated 2x4's so that I can attach them to 4x4 posts for a deck
The K2000 Pro Pack is nice but it's more money than I want to spend. I'm
looking at their Pocket Rocket or "Mini" Pocket Hole Jig.
The Pocket Rocket has an attachment that allows you to drill the hole
properly into a 1-1/2 inch thick piece of wood.
My question is: Is that attachment just a spacer that positions the jig
further from the end of the wood?
If that's the case could I accomplish the same thing by using the much
cheaper "Mini" jig and using a wood spacer to position it the proper
distance away from the end of the 2x4?
