I see that the bits are tapered. If a bit happens to break can it be replaced with a bit that is not tapered? Such as a Dewalt Steel Brad-Point bit?

Answer: 
Yes, the countersinks themselves are not tapered and the bit is supposed to be held at the smooth/straight part of the bit shank. The bit is only held in at one point where the hex screw grabs. As long as the bit fits ok in the countersink you can use any bit, although bits with a flat side on the shank work best as far as staying in place.

You can move the countersink up the bit to make shallower holes, but you are then grabbing the fluted part of the bit which is doable but not the best idea to keep your bits sharp.
The tapered bit is just easier to drill into wood with and provides a tapered hole so the screw is easy to drill at first but grabs well at the bottom of the hole. Read Less

Even though I gave it an "Average" overall rating and a "yes" to recommendation, please read my review, than decide for yourself. This product is one of those love it/hate it kind of things. Why I love it? Best design and very easy to use! Why I hate it? They are expensive!!! They work great when new, but gets old real fast! They break very easy!!! They burn fast, especially when drilling into older more mature/dense wood! I can't find bit replacements! Some allen head screws can't hold the bit to the arbor and finally, I truly wish these things were MADE IN THE USA BY AMERICAN CRAFTSMEN AND USING MATERIALS FROM THE USA AND NOT GLOBALLY SOURCED!!! After buying at least 6-8 sets of these things ( because of no bit replacements ), I've learned to go easy on them which is kind of a shame especially when you have a project or job that needs to be done on time and something like this holds you back! Hope this helps...

I have at least 2 sets on my truck at all times. Super handy to do minor pre-drilling to keep from splitting materials and also when needed countersink screws for completely professional looking results. Just used one yesterday to fix a window sill and once completed you would never know that I put (4) 3 inch screws through the face of the material to join them, counter sunk the screws, spackled the holes and painted. Perfect results. Make sure you tighten the countersink portion with the supplied allen wrench to make sure it is securely in place.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Look for alternatives Dewalt has/had an excellent reputation for its tools; however, that reputation is not deserved when it comes to its accessories (tapered countersinks, knee pads, tool belt/suspenders). The tapered countersinks: I went through several #6s. The tips broke off 2 and 3 were very wobbly. On a #10...the drill bit separated from the quick change shank.

Very cheaply made and expensive for the quality. Might as well buy the Ryobi ones for $9.95 for the set of three instead of these for $24.95. Quality wood working requires quality tools. These were the best ones Home Depot had to offer which isn't saying much.

The 2 larger sizes are ok but the tip of 9/64" breaks very easily. I've gone through 3 of them in about 5 months. Too expensive to keep replacing. There are other brands that take a conventional bit. If that bit breaks, cheap fix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STEEL COUNTERSINK SET (3-PIECE) I have been building "Heirloom Quality" Custom Woodwork for 30+ years, these countersink bits are the type and brand I have used , they are very easy to adjust and last a long time, even in hard wood like Maple, Bloodwood, Purple Heart and others

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tool for the job!! Package comes with three different size drills each with its own countersink. I purchased these specifically for drilling kitchen cabinets to connect them together and countersinking the screws. Great product and easy to use.
Date published: 2016-08-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok product. They don't make them like they use to last about a week with minimal use either dulls or breaks. Unfortunately no else makes these this way so I will continue to buy.
