I got an email about the new Kreg Foreman coming out in August. Probably one of my favorite tools. The new version is $400 compared to $700 for the old one. Curious to see if the quality is still there. Nice to see it is more affordable.

Big negative on that. If I wanted to make pocket holes I would buy a floor model Castle machine.
Meh. To noisy, much more complicated mechanisms. Heard the router needs to be replaced a lot sooner than you would think.

I'm upset it has dust collection. They couldn't think of that on the $800 version :censored:

Lots of plastic. Sadly that's how most tools are going. Not sure how compact it gets for travel. I got the original to fit in a large plastic tub.
