Wise Buys: Shelf-Pin Drilling Jigs

Pages in this Story:
Rockler Jig-It #32991

Rockler Jig-It #32991

Vertical hole spacing: 1-1/4"
Horizontal row spacing: 1-1/2" & 2-1/2" from fence
Standard hole size/included bit: 1/4"
Optional bits: 5mm, 7/32", 9/32"

Test-drive:
Although similar to the Peachtree in size, function, and price, the Jig-It also provides onboard storage in its fence for the included 1/4" bit and setscrew hex wrench. Great idea, but protruding latches on the compartment doors prevent the fence from sitting flat on the benchtop when clamped to a 3/4"-thick workpiece. So I had to hang it over the edge of the bench -- a minor inconvenience. Rockler offers 7/32" and 9/32" self-centering bits for drilling larger holes to accept brass shelf-pin sleeves that fit 5mm or 1/4" pins (shown ). Both work perfectly with this jig with no adaptation required, so this single jig lets you drill all the common pin-hole sizes.
