Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andy Does what it claims
I had previously only used a cone-shaped countersink out of one of the drill and driver bit kits, but I didn't put it back last time. This one had 4 different sizes (and I didn't know which one I needed), and was the cheapest of the bunch. The pilot bits are short, but they are removable and replaceable with the included hex wrench. They have the quick change hex shank on the bottom, making the switch from drilling to driving quicker. Downsides are the short pilot bits, lack of any sort of case to keep the set together, and no mechanical stop to keep you from drilling the counterbore too far. Despite these, for the price, it's a buy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Petethepainter Good product with limited usage
Countersinks are necessary for the serious woodworker who is working with hardwoods. This set has four sizes to cover the standard small screws used in quality finish work. It's adjustable drill points, while less than convenient, offer additional versatility, letting the user adjust hole depth to screw length.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bob74 Lack of cutting edge on Ryobi countersink drill bit set
I left my usual set at one of my childrens homes recently. I am finishing building a Baby Cradle in my shop at home and needed to apply the countersunk fasteners. While at Home Depot recently I picked up the Ryobi 5 pc set to use yesterday on the 5/8" white oak work piece's. From the first cut, using the #10 for a3/8" plug, I had to absolutely put my entire shoulder into the drill to aquire the hole. I continually cleared the bit as I drilled but all I really accomplished was to fill the shop with the smell of burnt wood and a comperable amount of smoke! I could not believe the difficulty using these cutters! Tried the #8 on a scrap workpiece- same smoke! I turned to my 25yr. old single piece flat cutters with no problem so it wasn't the solid white oak material. The Ryobi 5pc set is going back to the refund line.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by thurm good pick
at first i wasn't sure about how long the edge would stay sharp, but after using them many times
the edge is holding out very good.

This was the first time I had to use a sountersink drill set and found this one to work just as I needed.
Great product and would purchase again (if I ever need to)
