    Countersink Bit

    Anyone used a decent countersink bit?

    I finally landed on these and have used the same ones for years. Very easy to sharpen if you hit something DAMHIKT.

    Ditto here. Other (multi-fluted) styles that I have tried in the past all pale in comparison to this style.

    Vaughn ... I haven't had to sharpen mine yet, but just in case: What's the secret? Sandpaper? A file?

    Not Vaughn but I'll answer to darn near anything ;-) I used a set of diamond "sticks". Put the bit in the DP, fire it up and hold the grit against the face/edge.

    I have also been using these for several years now. The traditional style of countersink bits pale in comparison.
