What is up everybody, In this tutorial, I am gonna show you how to make a custom pocket hole jig with a 3d printer.

With the hole jig you can drill holes at an angle which is especially useful if you want to achieve strong bond between joining two wooden pieces at a 90° angle.

Step 1: 3d Modeling and Printing

As always, I start this projects with firstly modeling it in a 3d software called solidworks. I made a seperate solidworks tutorial video:

When I finished the model I export it as stl format and slice it with simplify 3d software. Estimated printing time was around 45 minutes which is just enough to do some other household things in the meantime.

<p>Really nice idea. Thanks for sharing it. I had a thought when reading through it. Instead of modifying a drill bit, you might be able to use one of these, and adjust the size of the tube to accommodate the socket:</p>
<p>thanks for sharing, really nice</p>
I am glad you like it :) thanks
<p>Have you thought about making the bottom have a v groove to be able to drill them into round dowel like on chair rungs. I going to have to print one of these thanks</p>
hmmm that is a great idea, thanks
<p>Thanks for the stl file. Did you print it with ABS filament?</p>
hi, no I have used a pla for that :)
Bro , you want to sell me one of those I would love to try it out !?? Thanks
hi, mail me at : jakes.wokshop@gmail.com
Nice! Thanks for sharing.
thanks, you are welcome ;)
<p>I have a Kreg Pocket hole jig kit with a lot of accessories as well. And you can buy replacement stepped drill bits fairly easy. The jig you made looks good, but I would buy the very sharp stepped drill bits if it were me. JMHO Thumbs Up!</p>
jp, you are right, if you use that a lot I would also recommend buying a new sharper one<br>
