A Must Have

I purchased the 9/32 self-centering bit to use with the shelf pin jig. The bit did an awesome job and produced clean holes which housed the pin sleeves perfectly.

This is one of those tools that you end up wishing you had gotten years ago. Along with the shelving jig, it will raise your level of precision and provide you with personal satisfaction in your projects. If you do happen to accidentally dismantle the spring loaded assembly like I did, the easiest way to put it back together is to assemble it without the spring first and lock down the set screw. Then remove the spring retaining spring clip which is at the front below the chip clearing holes, slide the brass washer, spring and stainless washer in that order over the assembly! compress these three parts with needle nose pliers and snap the spring clip back into position where the score mark is around the barrel. I found using a bench vise to hold the base of the bit while doing this is best.

These bits together with the shelf jig-it make drilling shelf pin holes a breeze. Word of caution however if you need to adjust the depth of the bit - do NOT unscrew the small inset screw more then necessary to loosen the bit. Removing the screw farther results in the entire spring loaded mechanism to fly apart. It can be put back together but takes some patience.
