Oh man. I'm not laughing at you brother I'm laughing with you. Been down that road many times
many more to come I'm sure. If I could just see the future I could avoid it.
I found the kreg jig about 1yr ago. Mine isKreg R3 Pocket Hole System. By far one of the best tools I ever bought.
Tip / suggestions if I may. Saw horses are a back saver. You can buy the brackets and use scrap wood cheaper than buying any saw horse. Also I suggest a clamp for the kreg. It will help be on mark more accurate its safer.... I can see you slipping and drilling a hole in your leg or something. Saw horses and using clamp down will help on your back. Won't be going up and down all the time. Oh ya it will save on your back too if I didn't say that before.
you might have the stuff i dont know just my 2 cents. anyway still doing a great job always look forward to the
