In Detail

These clever countersinks have a depth adjustable outer stop that rotates so it does not mark the wood, suitable for doing repetitive countersinks in such things as decking. Easily adjusted the two Allen screws lock the stop securely to the countersink. Available in 3 sizes to cover a range of screws.

Updated review - downgraded assessment following further experience

Now that I have used these for a while I have decided that I am actually rather disappointed with their performance.

Unfortunately, once they have been in service for a while and drilled a few dozen holes the friction between the rotating metalwork and the stationary (when in contact with the work) builds up fiercely and leads to the plastic becoming so hot that it will literally leave burn marks on the work.

This effect is most severe when drilling a run of holes but even so, when one considers that the plastic ring is only in contact with the work briefly for any given hole this is still a very disappointing result.

I have tried lubricating the ring to reduce the friction between it and the rotating metal part but have met with only very poor success so far.

The large diameter of the ring also restricts how close you can drill to an upstand such as a box wall.

All in all, despite the shocking price, I have to now recommend the Trend Snappy equivalent which offers a smaller diameter ring (made of Teflon) for closer work, continuous operation without overheating, and easy adjustment of both the drill depth and the countersink depth / ring height.

I bought one and have been using it out of preference over the Axminster clone for months now - despite the price tag of three times the Axminster product. It's not worth the money Trend want for it, but there is no competition, so if you want something that does the job 100% rather than 80% you need to pay for the Trend.

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.
