Hmmm, not sure of what you're asking. Can you explain more as to what you want to do with the drill bits when using a box joint jig.

I'm confused by the "drill bit" aspect, too. Most box-joint jigs use either a square indexing pin, made of wood or brass, that is the same width as the router bit being used, or a finger-style template where the spacing is based on a particular size of router bit.

G'day John

Welcome to the router forum.

Thank you for joining us.

Do you mean to use a drill bit as the index key for the box joint jig?

Thanks for the response. I am hoping to use a standard drill bit for my index pin and distance to index pin. I know I have the brass bars of varying size as well as can make wood pins of various woods. However I thot????? maybe I could use something usually more on hand than making a special bar or trip to the drawer for the brass bar.
