I had always heard that this style produces a very smooth cut, so I decided to pick some up when I was at Woodcraft. I bought the #6, #8, and #10. It really is amazing how smoothly and effortlessly they cut.
The second picture I uploaded shows just how smooth these things cut (#10 is shown, but the results are typical). On the far left is the Wood River single flute countersink, middle is one from HD (can’t remember the brand), and right is from a Ryobi countersink set. Lower board is poplar, upper is walnut. You can pretty clearly see that the single flute is the best, followed by the Ryobi, with the brand-less one in a distant third.Gripes
- I wish they had a 1/4” hex shank, simply for the incredible ease it offers
- If you try to drill too deep (ie counter sink then bore if you wanted to put a plug over the screw hole) the waste exit hole will drop below the work surface and it will clog
Score: 4 stars due to the clogging issue
5 stars otherwise
