These are tailor-made for drilling pocket holes - not just because of the stepped design, but because of their high-polish, sharpness, and temper. Drilling a lot of pocket holes in a row generates a lot of heat, and these bits hold up to the heat and keep their edge.

If you are replacing a lost bit, be aware that this bit does not include the depth collar, which may be found here: Kreg H9474 Depth Collar w/ Allen® Wrench

Kreg also makes a square shank version, for quick-change bit holders: Kreg Hex Shank Pocket-Hole Drill Bit and a quick change set including the quick-change driving bit: Kreg Quick-Change Pocket-Hole Kit.

Finally, Kreg also makes cobalt steel bits that can be used either in their pocket hole machines or in a hand-held drill. These are exceptionally hard and will hold up to extreme use and high heat. They are expensive, though, and if you are going to use one in a hand-held drill, make sure you buy the right-hand twist version: Kreg DKDB 3/8-Inch Step Twist Drill Bit for Pocket Hole Machines.

I purchased the Kreg Pro Pack unit, that comes with this bit. My feeling is that since it is the only one, if for any reason I am in the middle of a project and the tip breaks, or I have any other problem with it, I don't want to be left standing while I wait for another one. So I bought it as a backup.
This bit does a great job, and the Kreg pocket hole systems won top of class award in every category in a recent run off by one of the top woodworking magazines. They won in every size, and every model from the mini on through to the professional bench top.
I don't really anticipate having a problem with the drill bit, but when doing this for a living, you need a parachute, in the event the unusual happens. This bit is built strong, and is rather large, so breakage is not likely, but the tip that protrudes on the end is a lot smaller, and that could possibly break. Additionally, if you are pocket holing all day, the bit could dull, and that would requires a replacement.
Overall highly recommended.

Tried other manufacturers but recommend using only this Kreg step drill bit. The metal seems to be harder and the pilot hole a better length than other step drill bits.

Outstanding tool and superior quality. (I needed spare bits - they occasionally dull and on rare occasion, when pushed too hard in very hard wood, the tip may break) I laid my hands on a Kreg Jig about 7 years ago and had to have one. Now it is one of the most used tools in my shop. I build furniture and Cabinets, and have found the quality of my product has increased and the speed of production has trippled. What a Tool, I cannot say enough good about it. Buy one and use it! You will not be sorry.

The only reason I gave this one star is there was no way to give it less. I have used the Kreg jig for many sets of cabinets and never had a single problem with it. I love it! But after 8 - 10 complete kitchen cabinet sets (probably several thousand holes drilled) the bit was understandably dull. I tried to sharpen it unsuccessfully and realized for $15 I should just get a new one. So I did. That's where the nightmare began.

The new bit was sharp and cut through soft maple like a hot knife through butter. What a joy to use, after using my dull bit for so long. After about 150 - 200 holes, the tip broke off. I thought about sending it back, but thought, no, I must have pushed too hard, or not had the bit spinning fast enough when it entered the wood -- in short, I figured maybe it was operator failure and it wouldn't be right to send it back if it was my fault. So I got another one. Because of my previous failure, I was very careful not to push too hard and to have the bit spinning sufficiently fast when I entered the wood. Less than 100 holes later, used very gingerly on every hole, the tip broke off again. I finished the job with my dull bit without incident.

Clearly, these bits are not the same as the originals. They look the same, but to get less than 100 holes on a bit when I got thousands off the original offers no other explanation than these are not the same quality. Quite frankly I'm not sure where to turn. I have used the Kreg jig for years as an "over-the-top-happy" customer, evangelizing their products to anyone who would listen. But I have to say this whole turn of events has left an incredibly sour taste in my mouth. It'd be hard to recommend Kreg to my friends now.

It is 3/8" in diameter and works very well with Kreg's or similiar make self-boaring screws. You can use with any drill driver. Simple!

These step bits work very well in the pocket hole jig. However, the small diameter tip can break off if one is not careful, so I keep a spare bit on hand.

I have one of the 'generic' pocket hole jigs you can get at most big box home improvement stores. when my original bit broke, I was in the middle of a project on a rare day off, so I had to buy a whole other jig set ($30) in order to keep going. So I decided a spare would be a good idea. This is the best price on a spare bit I could find. The Kreg bit seems to be a little sharper than the generic one that came with my jig, so the generic bit is now my backup.

It's a good idea to keep one extra around. They are good bits, but the tip is definitely the weak point of the entire system. hopefully the kreg bit is a little better made.
