Hi Angie,

You can probably find one at a local tool store that carries Kreg products. Failing that you can find on online at Lee Valley tools http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=46272&cat=1,180,42...

or the Tool Store http://www.thetoolstore.ca/view.asp?Kreg-Quick-Change-Hex-Shank-Dri...

Do they replace these Jim? I've had it since May 2011?

You would be hard pressed to find anyone that would replace a drill bit of any sort as it is considered a consumable item much like sand paper or hack saw blades.

First my Patriots...now my Kreg!!! what else?

You just need a 3/8" flat bottom step drill bit. Should be able to get one at Lowes, Home Depot, Ace Hardware...... etc.. How'd ya do that anyway? Jim's right, be hard put to claim a warranty on a broken bit. Surprised Kreg offers free sharpening.

They have the drill bit at Lowes for 15.49, can't live without my kreg. I don't know John!~ I drilled 3 holes, 3rd wasn't going thru...pulled out, and my little pointy end was still inside :(

Hi Angie - looks like it could have been dropped somewhere along the way. Sometimes they can get a crack that wont show up right away.

Check and see if they have a mini jig kit, they go for about the same price and include a bit. You can also check Home Depot, they sell a General Tool pocket hole kit and may carry bits for that.

Send it in and if they dont give you a new one that would be poor customer service  in my opinion. My gosh how much money will they make selling you screws from now on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just a payback for being a Pats fan. hee hee hee.. just pulling your chain. Honestly though. I have seen these at Home Depot & Harbor Freight.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
