Excellent & well worth the money
Excellent countersink bit. Do yourself the favor, spend the extra money & buy this counter sink. The stop collar on it comes in handy and it drills flawlessly.

Best countersink bits on the market
I teach woodworking classes at a high school and these bits are money well spent. The bits outlast any other bits I have purchased and they are spot on. The replacement bits are expensive but well worth the price. These are the only countersink bits I purchase. I will buy them again and I would recommend them. They save money in the long run and are very reliable. I use them or rather my students use them on both hardwood and softwood.

wears out fast.
This one seemed really nice for the first handful of holes, but wore out very quickly drilling into southern yellow pine.

excellent bit and much better than less expensive bits

It should be a quicker and neater way drill and countersink in one operation.

To match set.

best countersink I have found, works excellent!
Jeremy S on Mar 10, 2017
I'm hoping that it is a little more durable than the other type. Let's see if it lives up to the title 'Pro.'

For the same reason I purchase the #8 bits. They are reliable and take the abuse of about 120 teenage woodworking students each year. We use these bits extensively and have the students make plugs for most of their projects. Excellent countersink with the tapered drill bit/
Mike S on May 10, 2016
they allow a steeper angle .i find they stay sharper then any others i have used .this seems to be the most functional size for construction screws

#6 Pro Tapered Countersink Bit

Item #: 33141; do you have something similar where the depth can be set versus trying to figure out how deep while drilling?
James J on May 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Please check the "See It In Action" section in this on-line product page. It will demonstrate the set-up and adjustment of the stop collar and bit.
I want to fasten and countersink through 3/4" wood and cover with a 3/8" plug. Which bit should I order? Does the number refer to the size of screw to use?
Thanks
Ronald M on Jun 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: #6 refers to a #6 wood screw. The counter sink is slightly over size allowing for clearance. I don’t have this measurement. I know using the #8 setup I use a standard 1/2” plug. You’re probably good using 3/8” for the #6 but see if the manufacture can verify this dimension. I’m traveling so can’t measure the device. Btw really LOVE these drill bits!!
can the # 6 tapered bit, be adjust to any depth ect, 1/2'' 3/8'' 5/8''?
heyward b on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes with the included collar. Most of the time, I have it set in a drill press and therefore the depth is set using the range on the drill press. As a high school teacher I have been very impressed with these bits. One bit typically gets us through the year. We use it for drilling through poplar, black walnut, red oak as well as cedar and spf lumber.
Will the #6 Pro Tapered Countersink bit work with #6 5/8" screws? I'm concerned that the bit will be too long. Only want to countersink to a depth where the screw head (flat head) will be flush with the wood surface. If this bit is too long, any recommendations? Thx.
Tom M on May 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The collar on the shaft is adjustable with a small allen screw, so you can set a depth stop with this. I loved this countersink. I used it basically every day of my life. I recently lost the toolbox it was in and am in the process of replacing things. I'm using a Dewalt #6 right now that I happened to have around - it's okay, but I think the Rockler performs about 50 times better!
