    Types of Countersink Cutters

    • Cross-Hole Countersink Cutter: These have a hole that goes through the side of the cone that provides the cutting edge. These countersink cutters are suitable for deburring and can also be used in soft materials such as wood or plastic to create a countersunk hole.
    • Fluted Countersink cutter: These have fluted blades that produce a heavy chamfer to create the correct seating for a countersunk-head screw.
    • Single fluted: These have less chatter or mechanical vibration than multi-fluted and are ideal for use in small holes for general-purpose countersinking, chamfering, and deburring.
    • Three fluted: These are designed for a chatter-free performance and are used mainly in portable applications at slower speeds. The design of these countersinks gives them a good centering ability.
    • Four fluted: These have good radial relief
    • Five Fluted: These have a rugged design, and the odd number of flutes minimizes chatter.
    • Six fluted: These are ideal for producing fast shearing cuts.
