When you design it yourself, there are no instructions!
Handy Tip:
In tight spots, you can use a screw bit in a socket and drive it with a ratchet.

Great tip! On my charging station, I ended up drilling through the outside of the case because I didn't think of that.  I'll know for next time, Thanks

If your Kreg pocket holes are getting harder to drill, or your drill bit gets excessively hot during operation, it may be time to get your drill bit(s) professionally sharpened. Luckily, the professionals at Kreg are here to help you out.

Simply send your Kreg drill bit(s) to:
Kreg Tool Company
Attn: Drill-Bit Sharpening Service
201 Campus Drive
Huxley, IA 50124

Please include $4 for the first bit, $2 for each additional bit, and your return address. Your bits will then be professionally sharpened and returned to you. 

For more information, please call us at 800-447-8638 (Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm CST) or email us at
