ROCKLER’S POCK-IT HOLE CLAMP was enhanced with a new push-button release feature. This allows the clamp’s threads to slide in and out when the button is pressed, decreasing setup and take-down time for each pocket hole joint, according to the company.
Final tightening is still accomplished with the original model’s ratcheting handle. The clamp is made for 3/4” thick face frames and casework and allows for the fastening of one pocket hole while the other pocket hole of the same joint is clamped. An adjustable built-in pin fits 3/8” x 15-degree pocket holes. The clamp retails for $21.99. Contact: Rockler Woodworking and Hardware. Tel: 877-762-5537. www.rockler.com
