This makes using pocket holes quick and easy whenever they are needed, even if it would not be worth the trouble to drag out the kit and set it up for just a couple of holes.
I know how I got along without it, I used dowels, or biscuits, or mortise and tenon. But I would not want to go back to not having the option to use pocket holes. They are a real time saver when they are appropriate.

Haven't done any doweling since I made a little furniture years ago. I have a router table that has so many "safety" devises built in, it is a major PIA to set up and use. I think the best ones are home made. Another router would be a nice thing, so to leave one in the table. ..... yeah, a plunge router, louvered cabinet doors would be a fun project. Happy Thanksgiving Folks!
