Machinery manufacturer Castle USA introduces the 110 Pocket Cutter, a portable and adjustable pocket hole joinery solution.

“The Castle 110 Pocket Cutter provides smaller woodworking shops, hobbyists, and DIYers with the same, superior ‘Castle Low Angle Pocket’ for minimizing joint shift as our bigger, more commercial machines,” Glyn Phillips, general manager of Castle USA, said in a statement.

“Our founder, Max Durney, has been working on getting our pocket hole technology into the hands of everyday woodworkers for quite some time, and the Castle 110 does that while being affordable, portable, and easy-to-use.”

The 110 Pocket Cutter includes a ‘quick’ clamp to secure workpieces and can be clamped directly to large workpieces, allowing end-users to bring the machine to the material. It can be clamped to a work surface or mounted through pre-drilled holes in the base. It also features a pilot-hole guide and dust port.

Each machine is assembled and adjusted upon shipment with no additional setup required, according to the company.

Each machine includes a 450-watt router with an 8mm collet, router bit, collet wrenches, bit set-up block and height gauge, 5/32” pilot hole bit, pocket cutting bit with 8mm shank, table overlay plate, T20 Torx driver bit, and 250 count boxes each of 1-1/2” and 1-1/4” Torx Hi-Low pocket screws. Optional accessories are available.

The Castle 110 Pocket Cutter sells for $399.
