Precision stepped drill bit for Miller Dowels
Bores clean holes
Prevents boards from separating as you drill
This drill bit will last a long time. Each bit can be professionally sharpened once, but then it should be replaced in order to maintain the precision profile of the dowels.
I've been using Miller Dowels for the last 5 years and never had to sharpen a bit. I've drilled 1000s of holes in soft and hardwoods including oak, ash, and walnut with ease. They only time I need to replace a bit is when I ruin a bit by hitting on a nail or screw.
The 1x drill bit has an indicator line depth of 2-3/4". It is 3-13/16" overall MINUS the shank. The 1x dowel is 2-11/16" which allows for glue space and slight indent of dowel for additional surface sanding if required. The stepped pilot hole prevents splitting.
