Review

The General Tools jig started life as the Simp'l Products jig, and comes with only the aluminum jig, drill bit, stop collar, hex wrench, and driver bit.
The jig can be mounted to a substrate or clamped directly to a workpiece; it works the same either way. The jig lacks any type of adjustment for different workpiece thickness: You drill the same hole spacing (1" on center) unless you reposition the jig for each hole. And the thumbscrew "clamp" requires lots of turns when going from a thin board to a thick one, and if you overtighten it you'll likely leave a dimple on the wood. There are no markings on the jig for lining up on a workpiece, so you have to eyeball it. The included drill bit dulled quicker than all the others, resulting in tear-out around the pocket holes.
