While searching for opportunities to make some improvements in my shop I discovered a promotional offer of a German company – Hettich
I can buy for the half of the normal price two drill jigs - Hettich DrillJig VB and Hettich hinge drilling jig

The jigs are of very high quality, ready to be used out of the box, they do not require a lot of space in my shop, they are mobile etc. but..
For the double price (of what I will pay for the jigs) I can get a Blue Max mini

It is ready to be used for drilling hinges, it will require some space in my small shop, it could also be used as an ordinary drill press but the drill bits are very, very expensive …at the other hand ….once set up with the Blue Max mini you could work more fast, precise and efficient
I was thinking anyway to buy a drill press and now for the same money I could get the
Blue Max mini….. or it is better to buy the jigs – I will spend less money, the jigs do not require much space (and I have a small shop) I am not a professional, so productivity is maybe not the first thing I should think about…
What would you do? Any considerations?
