Hmmmm, designed by a non-user

So I already had another make of these drill/countersink combi things. They had an adjustable drill bit but adjusting the countersink depth was a nightmare. So along comes Axminster with this seemingly superb piece of kit. "Depth adjustable countersink" and "Easily adjusted for depth". Wow, prayers answered...... Nope. This time the countersink is easily adjusted, but the drill bit not so much. Shallowest hole for the 3-4mm straight out of the packet, 30mm excluding countersink, for the 4-5mm, 35mm. Not so good when you use 20mm timber a lot. So we're still to find a product invented by a drill user who can think big picture and come up with an adjustable countersink as well as drill bit.

I have thought about using an HSS bit to drill through the rest of the drill holder part but not sure if that would work. I think my angle grinder is coming out to cut the drill bit down. If I need a deeper pilot hole, I can always use a drill bit in another drill to deepen it after the counter sink is cut.

Almost good.

I bought these along with the more expensive FISCH type as I needed to get a job done and didn't have time to wait for a second order if the first didn't work.
As others have said, they are good as long as you don't want to drill a hole shallower than that of the drill bit supplied. I wanted a 10-15mm pilot hole with countersink so in this case the 3mm one was useless. Why couldn't they pass the drill bit up the centre like other types? As I said, I bought the Fisch ones too, see my review, they have problems too.

Drawback yes, but worth it all the same

Richard is correct that "adjustable" is misleading. I would go beyond that and say that it is flat out incorrect. However I have just placed a second order for several of these - including a number of the size that I use most - because they cannot be beaten for repeatable countersinking using a handheld battery drill. in fact, the results are better than my pillar drill can achieve utilising the built in depth control with ordinary countersinks.

The reason I have bought several of the same size is because I find them so useful that I have bitten the bullet on the expense and use an angle grinder to trim the supplied drill bits to different lengths (three usefully covers most eventualities I find) which overcomes the very difficult to understand limitation that they are not actually adjustable as implied.

I give it five stars for a brilliant product minus one star for the completely unaccountable inability to adjust the depth of penetration of the pilot drill.

Important Drawback

This is a nice idea and gets the countersink to the depth you want. However the phrase 'adjustable for depth' is misleading: You cannot change the depth of the drill, which is longer than you will often need. Similar products have a grub screw that allows the dill to be set at any depth, with a through hole in the shank. These hardened shanks are solid, so the product is only suitable for long screws, which is very limiting.
