    Stubby Pocket Hole Twist Bit

    A shorter twist bit used with a kreg micro jig? Does such a thing exist?

    Why Im trying to find such a bit: I plan to install stair treads on existing stringers without acces from underneath and plan to use pocket holes (with adhesive).

    Thanks!

    wondering if you could use a 90degree drill adapter with a regular length bit? Or... grind the end off a regular micro-jig-sized bit?

    Yes, I forgot to mention I’m using a right angle adapter—necessary if the need of a hex twist bit.

    I have used a set of these where space was an issue, even with the right angle adapter. ....

    Not ground the same as a pocket hole bit, but may work in a pinch.

    If you're still looking for shorter step drill bit, knife maker Walter Sorrells made this video a few years back: https://youtu.be/84j2pH-ep6k

    Perfect Matt!

    I can buy a knock off bit to experiment with.

    Admittedly, I haven't read the post through so I maybe missing the point but just as an FYI, short drills are known as screw machine length or s/m drill bits.
