Amana Tool offers the industry’s only carbide-tipped countersinks for long-lasting performance and smoother cuts in a variety of materials.

Amana Tool, manufacturer of industrial-quality carbide-tipped, solid carbide and replacement carbide cutting tools, today announced its collection of carbide-tipped countersinks with pilot drills (item 55202) available in various sizes. Amana Tool’s countersinks are the only ones in the industry to feature carbide tips, which provide longer-lasting performance, smoother, cleaner cuts and no tear out in comparison to traditional steel countersinks. Woodworkers, furniture makers, cabinet makers and deck builders can use the countersinks in a variety of materials including hardwood, plywood, solid surface, and softwoods.

The countersink collection also includes counterbores, which create a flat-bottomed upper portion of the pilot hole instead of a tapered opening. Each cutting edge is manufactured from an Amana-exclusive carbide grade designed to deliver the highest quality of cut, maximum cutting efficiency prolonged tool life.
