" Purchased this as a spare to have kicking about in the workshop. I have to say it is incredibly sharp and after countersinking a couple of dozen holes in oak, it is still as sharp as it was when purchased. I expect it will last a fair while. "

Good value item

" Having purchased this inexpensive item, the first use I put it to was to countersink mild steel brackets. This tool worked perfectly gave no trouble and still seems a sharp at the end of the exercise as it was before I started. Good value for money "

" Nice and sharp and does not chatter much.
Have even abused this tool by using it to enlarge a 10mm hole to 12mm in thin steel sheet.

Excellent Countersink

" I used this on a thick hard wood door frame to countersink some large frame screws. This was the first time i have tried this and the results were excellent. The bit went through the wood cleanly and quickly, leaving a professional finish. "

Sharp and quick

" It's very sharp and quick. Don't waste your money on cheaper ones - brilliant bit of kit but practice on scrap wood first as you'd be surprised how sharp it is. "

" Countersinks softwoods and hardwoods like the world is ending tomorrow. First time I used it in softwood, I just about drilled a very large hole where I wanted a small countersink. It's just that sharp, and cuts so smoothly.
Haven't had occasion to use it in metal yet, so can't comment on that, and have only done a few dozen countersinks on various woods, hence the 3 stars for reliablity. However, it has already lasted longer than some cheaper alternatives. "

A quality product

" It's worth paying a bit more for this countersink. It cuts cleanly and stays sharp longer. I have used it successfully in mild steel and it removes metal almost as rapidly as a good twist drill. "

" In a different league to the chocolate countersinks that come part of a set. This is a precision cutting tool: very hard, very sharp and gives a pro finish. "

Clear Cutter
22 Mar 2011
By StoveStoker
, Cumbria
" I bought this HSS countersink in preference to some cheaper alternatives because I've had experience with them and because this was made from High Speed Steel I knew it would last a while and take a decent edge when resharpened. Having now tried it I can confirm it produces a good clean cut without chatter, even in very soft wood and am very satisfied with the product. "
