Now the Truth Can Be Told: The NEW Kreg Foreman Pocket Hole Machine Item #DB210

So last week I had the chance to preview the new Kreg Forman Pocket Hole Machine, which is truly a hybrid between their inexpensive bench-top jigs and their previous Foreman machines.  This new tool is sporting a blue plastic base that reminds me quite a bit of the K5 jig.  It features a cast aluminum top and a plastic "chopsaw-style" D-handle with an integrated trigger switch. 

The first thing I thought when I saw it was "The folks at Kreg must have been watching The Wooden Tool Man's" Youtube Channel (See vid below).  The hold down clamp is mechanical and clamps like with a pull of the handle. The clamp is made of black plastic and has an adjustable pad, just like most of their small jigs. The cast aluminum table has a center section that lifts from the front and is held up by a little holder on the left. The motor slips out quickly with the pull of a looped wire ring, and with the motor free of the tool swapping the bits with the keyless chuck is a breeze.

The good news: It has a retail price of $399.99.  The bad news: It won't be available until Aug 1, 2014.  Don't worry, that time will fly by.

The video below is from a Youtuber named "Wooden Tool Man" and his invention predates the introduction of the new Foreman by many months.
