I'd stick with the kreg, especially if you can wait for it to go on sale with the clamp for$40. You still need to clamp this and if you get the kreg clamp you'll be paying the same. The keg bit almost certainly be higher quality.

The reviews seem pretty mixed - several mention the depth adjustment being incorrect, and lots of them mention the quality of the drill bit being pretty poor. Add $15 to replace the drill.
Also keep in mind this doesn't include the long square bit needed to install pocket screws that Kreg includes, so there's another $5 you need to spend.

If it were me, I would spend the $7 more for the Kreg, and get the $5 square bit Massca doesn't include, a higher quality drill bit, a nice case, and even a few screws and plugs to practice with.

I have this Massca pocket jig set and it's been great. I have used it weekly on furniture builds for the last 5 months without any issues.

Pocket holes? Real men spend hours calculating a mortise and tenon then get a minor calculation wrong and stay up until 3am trying to fix it before realizing the garbage they created is inevitable.

I believe I've heard Norm Abrams state the same thing.

So much "cheaper" is right.

Kreg is far from good... their hardware (clamps, screws, bits) are garbage. Their track and router items are both low quality, and overpriced by a mile. But their pocket hole jig is easy and worth it for a DIY'er.

With that said... best way to do pocket holes is to make your own pocket hole jig. There's tons of vids on youtube. I made a cool one from linear rods, brass bushings, and some HDPE I recycled. There's many ways to do it.
I would say that's ONE way to do it. Not necessarily the "best" way. The best way is the method that makes the most sense for each worker's productivity, accuracy, and cost/benefit. For the average, or even advanced user, Kreg has made good quality and accurate pieces for years. I think they are overpriced for what you get but I'm not going to deny that they work. Yes, you can make high quality diy jigs but not everyone wants to spend the time or energy to do that. I would say to each their own. If the diy route is what makes you feel the most confident and happy in your work, that's awesome. I just wouldn't throw shade on tried and true products because you found something different that works for you.

Wow. That's pretty ingenious. They've practically made pocket hole joinery a no-brainer. The (short) video is especially informative. Thanks!

Why would I take the risk on a knockoff when the Kreg K3 mini is under $30? (Possibly backordered for a week, but still...)
