Nice bit . Cuts as it should. I run it in reverse for a second to score the wood to avoid tear out. Then I finish drilling in forward the rest of the way.

What size is the collate? I need 3/8" for compatibility with a Fulton jig.
K P on Nov 30, 2019
Does this work with the Rockler JIG IT Shelving jig?
Randy L on Dec 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The pro shelf drilling jig uses thicker plastic than the Jig it system does so the shoulder on the pro shelf drilling bit is longer and will not work well with the standard Jig it system.
