    Pocket holes are probably stronger, but more difficult to hide. I like pocket holes for cabinets where I can hide the pocket holes since I don’t like filling them after inserting the screw.

    Biscuits are great since they are hidden.

    I’ve been thinking of getting one after a guy at work raves on them.
    No clamping, which I guess is nice as well

    They are nice. They have different purposes. I think biscuits properly done can be very strong, but for a face frame the pocket jig is tough to beat. Fast and easy and strong. I would never consider a pocket screw joint for a location where it could be seen. Biscuits or other joinery are better for that.
    PLesa excuse the tpyos.

    I volunteered to make some of the props for my daughter's play at school. I've been assigned to make five facades for various scenes including a storefront, a dresser, a fireplace, a bank teller, and one other. Been using the pocket jig to quickly construct these one-sided facades in fairly short order. Love it. Well worth the small expense (~$50).

    NICE!

    Geez Walter. A play at school? What happened to cardboard, duct tape, and sharpies?

    That looks like a prop from a school play in a movie.
