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.

First time I really had a need for the ACS miter guide.

I've been using my Adaptive Cutting System table for a few years now, and it's been really solid. This past week was the first time I ever needed to use the miter guide though.I was rebuilding some shelving in a tiny closet and I discovered the…Continue

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…
