I imagine this bit gets a lot of use, whats your favorite one?

I think I’d like to get a new tapered one with a depth stop. I feel like its worth getting two of the main size set for long screws and short screws so you don’t have to fumble around with the tiny allen key

this seems like a good setup. I can’t see me using the whole set though only #8 and #10 but they sell individually

I use Fuller brand ones and the #8 and #10 the most. They are tapered drill bits in them and work well.

I have found that I am using them less as I use Woodcraft Highpoint screws which you do not need to use a counter sink.

The Highpoint screws are self taping and also cut their own counter sink as there are small ridges under the screw head. They work really well in softer wood and not bad in hardwood. They are just another option worth trying.

I like the carbide tipped bits from Amana.

I have this set “of cheapies”. They’re not great but they do cut accurate and clean countersinks. Problem is the drill bits don’t last long. I just replaced them with twist drills when they broke. It’s an affordable solution though if you want to buy multiple sets for different depths.
