Questions & Answers

Do I need to use the rapid load attachment to use these countersinks?

Asked by: JoeT
They're 1/4" hex with a quick-load groove, so you can chuck them into a conventional drill or drill press ... or use the quick-load.

Is there an adjustable depth stop?

Asked by: G516
The countersink head can be moved up & down the length of the bit. But, typical of tapered bits, the head doesn't want to center accurately on the fluted & tapered part of the bit ... even with 2 set screws. It also tends to work itself loose.

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?

I haven't used countersink tapered bits before.
Asked by: jpablo
I have not had this happen yet, but see no reason why you could not switch to a different bit type. set screw works off of shaft size only.

They do okay just don't last long with metal products.

Steel Countersink Set (3-Piece) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 301.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Countersinks, Pain to Replace if they break I like these countersinks, they drill quickly and accurately in all types of wood. They have a special fluting to the drill that is well-suited to wood vs all-purpose bits. Much better quality than the "store" brand countersinks and this makes a difference when speed/accuracy is valued. Obviously harder wood is slower to drill though. Only pain is if you hit a screw or nail and break the bit, but that is a problem with any small bit. Replacement bits are available, but they charge a la carte for them so it is not reasonable to buy a replacement bit, you are better off just buying a whole new set. Unfortunately I am now accumulating #8 and #10 bits because I have broken several #6 bits. I did have another set of wood pre-drill bits that had a bit that fit the DeWalt #6 countersink (not sure of the brand but it was purchased at HD a while ago) where I was able to buy a bit set vs a la carte. It lacked the quick connect so is a shorter bit but drills well with the DeWalt countersink.

But, being DeWalt, I thought I'd give them a try. Unfortunately, DeWalt missed the mark by using a flawed design. The idea of tapered-bit pilots sounds good, but they generally don't work as well as pilots with integral countersink/shank-clearance heads. They're okay, at best, for sticking a couple pieces of soft wood together. But the tapered geometry is all wrong for hardwoods. Screws should grip uniformly along the threads, not progressively tighter toward the end. Binding at the bottom of a hole increases the likelihood of screw shearing, and wood splitting (especially hardwoods). The shank should set slightly snug throughout its length in a clearance hole. Uneven grip can eventually cause deformation of the screw hole & fastener failure when a screw is primarily holding by its point & head, rather than uniformly along its length. Much better options are the Blu Mol (SKU #205624244) or Milescraft (SKU #203618867 or #302925558).

I purchased these in order to save time pre-drilling and countersinking wood screws on a large project I'm working on. I am working with softwoods. The first 5 holes I drilled were flawless. After that, the counter screws came loose, causing me to drill too deep. ruining a piece of my work. It was my experience that the bits required re-setting and tightening the counter screws every few holes. I even called my husband into the garage and had him try and set the screws, thinking I'd done something wrong, but they still came loose after drilling a few more holes. These were expensive to purchase - but then also cost me another trip to Home Depot to purchase more lumber to re-make my damaged pieces. So much for saving time.

This attachment was slightly off but really became apparent when the bits were spinning in the drill. I returned the bits for a refund and went back to using my old reliable spade type bits.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I used a drill press to use the countersink bit.... I used a drill press to use the countersink bit. The bit bent. I was able to use the countersink with another bit, but I am dissppointed that the bit bent. I'm not holding out a lot of hope for the other two bits. I have a lot of Dewalt tools and this is the first one that has let me down.

The drill part of all three of the countersinks is not in line with the drive part. Thus, they wobbble to the point of not being able to drill on target. This product is not even close to the usual quality of DeWalt tools.

It worked well and I didn't break the bit. Drilled about 56 holes in less than 1/2 the time it would have taken to use pocket jig.
