The Castle 110 Pocket Cutter in a Nutshell

The Castle 110 Pocket Cutter gives smaller woodworking shops and hobbyists, and DIYers an easy way to create low angle pockets. The 110 pocket cutter minimizes joint shift in a way that matches what you can get from larger commercial tools. The ability to make these kinds of joints repeatably with an affordable, portable, and easy-to-use machine should be a boon for smaller workshops.

Affordable, Portable, and Easy-To-Use

The Castle 110 Pocket Cutter takes just seconds to make clean, low-angle pockets. These attractive pockets provide strong and stable joints for cabinetry and woodworking projects, and all without the misalignment problems that are common with drilled pockets.

Castle 110 Pocket Cutter Joinery Machine

Castle’s Pocket Cutter design has you drill the screw’s pilot hole from the opposite side, which eliminates the accumulation of waste and tear out. This lets your joints fit together as tightly as possible.

The Castle 110 Pocket Cutter weighs just 13 lbs. And, since you can clamp it directly to large workpieces, you can take the machine to the wood. Or, you can clamp it down to a work surface using the clamp ports or mount it to your benchtop using the pre-drilled holes in the base. A dust extraction port helps you keep the work surface tidy.
