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.

Steel Countersink Set (3-Piece) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 262.

I usually like DeWalt tools and accessories, so I bought this set to eliminate the rough-edge holes I get with a current set of countersink/counterbore bits. The 4 cutters do a great job of trimming the hole - but ONLY if the bit is fully extended. Since the bits are much longer than most screws I use, I naturally slipped the bit into the cutter head. Unfortunately, that means the spiral edges of the bit butt against the 4 cutters, and sawdust/chips collect in the cutters - ruining the cut (see photo). If the bits were shorter, or had more non-cutting surface, these would be terrific bits. To use them as is though, I have to clean out the debris after each hole, which is unacceptable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best countersink bit ever had. I've tried nearly a dozen different brands of countersink drill bits, and these are far and above the longest lasting and easiest to use of them all. Sharp cutting edges and non brittle material keep working surfaces moving thru the most dense hard wood longer than all other brands I've used. After drilling hundreds of holes in maple and oak during my current project, I'm still amazed at the quality of these bits. Still sharp and useable! I'm impressed...thanks for the excellent product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bad Luck? I am a semi professional wood worker and use countersink drill bits everyday. Unfortunately I have gone through two sets of these drill bits. The first bit set chipped and the second set just completely snapped in the wood (pine). Out of the package this set is very sharp, but dulls after extended use (which is expected). Thanks to Home Depot's fantastic return policy, I have only paid for one set. For the money I think these are good bits, just don't expect to use these in heavy rotation for more than six months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drill Bit Replacement Awesome Drill Bits, but #6 bits break easily. Dewalt is difficult to go through, however Mcmaster-Carr has them for cheap and they have an additional #4 bit available. Way easier than Dewalt and they ship next day if it's done through a business account.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works great I have broken the # 6 bit, I also have a few sets. Dewalt's replacement part number is DW2537 for the # 6 bit. However Home Depot doesn't stock or offer these replacement bits yet. I'm hoping they do add them to their inventory soon.

I cannot use it because it wobbles so much that it makes the pilot hole too large and is difficult to keep on center. I would return the entire set but I discarded the packaging and assumed that HD would not accept it back. I am disappointed that DeWalt would allow such a defect to be sold. I shop at my local HD very often since my hobby is woodworking, and for the most part, I've always been satisfied, but no so with this item. I've had to purchase a single countersink the same size to replace this one.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pricey I bought these to start countersinking some wood projects I have started on. The bits are sharp and the countersink leaves a clean cut, but I think there ought to be another adjustment ring on the outside to be able to adjust how far the sink is going into the wood without having to "eyeball" it, and not just one for the screw length..I think I might try and find a hose clamp or something to make my own adjustment ring..
