Great & accurate bit
I purchased this bit to use with the benchdog shelf pin jig Rockler Sells. I wanted to use the Matt black shelf pin Sleeves. The “pro” shelf bits work with the benchdog jig.

9/32" Pro Shelf Drilling Bit
Jams up with chips easily but clears very easy. The holes are uniform and can be drilled very quickly.

Did exactly what it was designed for
Although there is a jig you can buy for this bit I decided to save some money and make my own. This bit saved time and energy and the holes were consistent. Every now and then it got jammed with wood chips but was very easy to unjamb by just pulling the sleeve back by hand. This will come in very handy when I get around to building shelves for my own home.

Can I redrill smaller 3/16 holes using a 9/32 bit ?
Paul G on Jan 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hey Paul,
These bits are designed to be used with a drilling template where the nose piece centers the bit in the template over the material being drilled. If you have the shelf pin drilling jig you will have no problem drilling out your 3/16" holes or you can make a template by just drilling a hole the same diameter as the black nose piece in a scrap piece of material and clamping and centering that over the existing 3/16" hole[s]. If you're using sleeves for shelf pins and have a steady hand you can probably free-hand it and be just fine but I never said that! :)

Do I need a jig for the self centering bit since I already have 1/4 holes drilled?
Irv S on Apr 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The jig not only keeps the bit from wandering, it enables you to drill multiple holes spaced accurately to allow for consistent shelf height adjustment,
I need to drill 9/32 self centering bit into my already drilled 1/4 holes for a sleeve,do I need a jig?
Irv S on Apr 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Maybe, if you want them to be perfectly spaced I would use a jig otherwise they could be off if the bit didn’t follow the drilled holes exactly
When making my own jig, what size holes should I drill?
