1/4" Drill Bit For Shelf Pin Jig
Quits springing back/jamming after < 100 holes. Horrible. Returning it to get a snappy and trying that one.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
First one failed
Weekend Cabinet Maker
After a few hundred holes, the sleeve stopped springing back down. I had to use pliers to grip the sleeve, then rev the drill a little, to get it to release. Then the sleeve 'came out'. I am not sure if was ever 'attached' to the spring or just was magically held up. Finally, after doing a few holes manually (placing the sleeve up against the spring), the sleeve was 'grabbed' by the outer shell, and won't come out (up or down). I am returning it for a new one. We'll see. It's great when it works, but a pain otherwise.
third time charm???
Retired from construction
My first one of these fell apart and was replaced by you. The replacement did the same midway through a project. I ordered another one to finish up, but there already signs of a repeat failure. I'm not drilling thousands of holes at a fast rate. Maybe one to two hundred every now and then. Most small bookcases easily have that many. I have looked at other units but they look like they are all made by the same company. Hopefully this third one will hold up a little longer.

This bit works very well with the jig for drilling holes in the kitchen cabinets for shelf pins. Simple, easy to use, you can't make a mistake, unless you try very hard!

Guide Metal to soft.
Willow Springs, IL
This bit easily clogs with wood chips, and the guide is made of soft metal. I have had to disassemble and sand out burrs in the metal guide after limited use.
can use some beefiing up
Drilled about 50 holes with it and the walls of the guide twisted and seized the bit. There are three holes in the guide and the legs between them seem weak. Woodcraft replaced it immediately and all has been well, so far, with the new one.
