What’s the Big Deal?

Both of the Kreg Pocket Hole Jigs speed up and clean up your pocket hole joinery. It starts with the Automaxx clamp. This clamp automatically adjusts for materials between 1/2″ and 1-1/2″ thick. You simply slide your material into place and press the handle. GripMaxx anti-slip material helps to hold the material securely.

While both models include some pocket hole screws, some drill and driver bits, and a dust collection attachment, the 720Pro has some extras.

With the Kreg 720Pro, you also get the Docking Station. As Kreg tells us, this transforms the 720Pro into the ultimate benchtop work station by providing wings to support longer workpieces. These material support wings also provide some extra storage for screws and bits.

With the 720Pro, you also get the Pocket Hole Jig Clamp, which lets you secure your jig to a workstation. This clamp also works with 500-Series pocket hole jigs. Of course, both this clamp and the Docking Station are available separately as well.

Looks like they tried to re-create the Porter Cable pocket hole jig but stopped 1/2 way. The single greatest place for error still exists with the manual setting of the stop collar. It’s a guarantee that you will at some point drill into the base because you forgot to reset the collar for a different thickness of wood. On top of that it’s bigger and harder to store. Seems like a seriously missed opportunity.

By comparison, this makes my Kreg Jig K5 look ancient and slow with the auto adjusting feature. I see holes in the body of it, but I can’t tell whether those holes allow it to be mounted on a board like I have my K5.
