Made repairing a cabinet door easy.
The General Tools 3/8 in. Wood Doweling Kit helped me fix what was going be a nightmare. I had a cabinet door hinge tear out. The door is made from compressed fiberboard and could not be fixed with the "toothpick" method. I drilled and widened the damaged holes with the supplied bit. Glued in the dowels, cut them flush after the glue dried, sanded, redrilled new hinge screw holes and reattached the hinges. The General Tools 3/8 in. Wood Doweling Kit got me out of a tough situation and made a repair that will last.

Fine for Occasional Dowels
This set up is fine, especially if coupled with a jig that forces you to drill holes perpendicular to the face of the board. I had 2 issues with it, as others have also noted. 1. The bit wobbled which some say is due to a not straight bit but that did not appear to be the case for me. 2. The collar was impossible to use. I ended up just using a piece of painters tape to help me stop at the correct depth. On the positive side, the dowels fit well and the centering pins worked well. This kit is exactly what I expected from a home depot wood working jig. You get what you pay for. Infrequent use likely makes the $8ish acceptable. It will certainly tide me over until I have money to make or buy a jig

    I mainly purchased this for the dowel transfer punch. Since it was not sold individually I had to purchase 2 packs, other than that the drill bit is a slight undersized which is great for no slop in the dowel hole.
