“The CSI from Castle has made a big difference in high-volume pocket hole work for us. We use pocket hole joinery in many applications and have several Castle machines. We build certain products that use a large number of pocket hole joints. The CSI literally eliminates one whole person from that assembly process. Also – Castle has always provided quality equipment that rarely needs service, but they have been very responsive with service and support whenever we have needed it. We appreciate Castle as a supplier and have been very happy with the CSI in particular.”

We realized how valuable a pocket boring machine was to our shop, even a shop that does very little face-frame cabinetry. We didn’t realize how often we would use pocket screws until we had the ability to make them with the touch of a foot pedal.” says Jared Patchin of J. Alexander Fine Woodworking in Boise, ID.
Jared reviews his machinery purchases in a series of articles written for a www.woodworkingnetwork.com. You can read the entire article here "Was My Pocket Boring Machine Something I needed?"

"We noticed an immediate impact on our production assembly in our finished products by 30%. We eliminated the inefficiencies of having the employee worry about inserting screws into panels and allowed them to concentrate on producing completed products. Another feature to note is we eliminated any employee using a wrong length screw during assembly since now all the panels are coming with the appropriate length screws pre-inserted. This new change in our company had the doubts of the shop floor in the beginning but after a solid month of utilizing the CSI machine we couldn’t imagine building our products without it."

I had one of the first EQ edgebanders and 25,000 feet of banding later, I still love the machine; works great. Also, I have had my Castle pocket machine for 12 years, and I have no idea how a small shop could be without it.

My EQ represents a low cost way to solve a very expensive problem. The speed and ease of the machine gives ‘hand on forehead’ results as it allows semi-skill labor to produce flawless results. Three hours after the machine was delivered, I was making money. Remarkable!

If I sold every machine in my shop, my pocket cutter would be the last thing to go. I use my pocket cutter for everything! Come see me and I’ll show you.

We use our Castle USA Pocket Hole machine almost everyday. It is holding up much better than our old machine. Since we have started using our Castle USA Face Frame Table, our cabinet face frames are turning out much better. There is less shift at the face frame joint. This means less time being spent at the surfacing sander and our frames are turning out thicker. The addition of these two machines has dramatically decreased manufacturing time and increased product value. Thank you Castle USA.

I use the Castle on everything. If you took away all my machines, just give me my panel saw, my edgebander, and my pocket machine and I’ll be able to stay in business .

Using Castle Pockets makes my face frames go together faster and stronger! The service I received from Castle after the sale means more to me than anything.
