Ever wonder how to make level, wobble-free cabinet shelves? The Milescraft CabinetMate is just the tool to get the job done. This easy to use, lightweight and durable jig is a great alternative to shop-made jigs, which typically wear out after just a few uses.

The CabinetMate shelf pin jig has a rigid main body, indexing pins and a self-centering, spring-loaded drill bit. The custom spring-loaded-brad point drill bit allows the holes you drill to self-center with the holes on the main body. This bit is pre-set to bore a crisp hole with consistent depth for a perfect fitting shelf pin. The CabinetMate also comes with a built-in closed storage compartment for your bit and indexing pins.

The CabinetMate allows you to accurately drill eleven holes, evenly spaced at 32mm apart, in just one setting. This innovative tool can be used on cabinet sides before assembly, already assembled cabinets and face-frame or frameless cabinets. A stand-out feature of the CabinetMate is that it also allows you to mark the locations for Euro-style hinges. This tool comes with the 1/4″ self-centering drill bit. If you are looking for a very affordable, high quality and extremely versatile cabinet jig, the new Milescraft CabinetMate is the only one you will need to look at.

    The CabinetMate is made for beginners or pros! This product is super easy to use. I have already tried it twice and love it! The drill bit is sharp and makes clean holes. This product can be used for the workshop or DIY. I will be putting in a shelf to set some pictures on in an entertainment center and this product is going to be great to have for that project! This is one of my favorite products of Milescraft!

    This jig sure made it easy for me to put some adjustable shelves into my new lathe stand! No measuring, no checking for level, no fighting to hold things in place. Just set the jig down, pick which set of holes you want to use, hold it against the workpiece with your hand and start drilling evenly spaced holes. I’m really glad to have this thing, and I will be building more adjustable shelving into my future projects – something that I have avoided up until now.
