I have recently bought a shelf pin jig from JIG-IT and have used it on an oak plywood cabinet. The problem is that the drill bit is causing some tear-out at the hole entrance is there any trick to eliminate this tearout. I have tried to install tape and drill through it but I still got the same amount of tearout.
Thanks for your replies
I posted several months ago about a brand new shelf pin centering bit that was causing tearout in oak plywood and you were the only person who told me to replace the bit. Well anyway I tried several other ideas but only got good results when I replaced the bit, thanks for the suggestion. The problem was that the bit was recessed too deep in the steel centering jig and when I started drilling, the bit would ever so slightly catch the edge of the jig and in no time flat the bit was dull and tearout starting occuring after a few holes.
