Isn’t that a counterbore, not a countersink?

Good idea – but the hole looked rather deep compared with a normal countersink. How about using the brass depth setting bush which is usually already on the bit to set the depth of the countersink/counterbore ?

Yeah I had thought of that after I already posted it. However, having a Deephole allows you to be able to fill it with a dowel if you want to cover your screw. You can also put the bit in your drillpress for more control. Using the collar though is a definite thing to do if you’re free handing it.
