Answer

Thanks Rick. My question is really more wondering. What diameter the thinnest part of this bit is.

Answered on 04/01/2014 by Nikk Wilsin

Answer

The bit tapers down to something close to 1/16". I can't be precise because the flutes of the bit converge at that point. Hope this helps.

Answer

As the bits are is tapered, the tip is a bit rounded, and about 3/32 or a bit less, depending on nominal size.

Answered on 04/01/2014 by Rick Contestabile

Answer

Probably what is most important- these bits are designed for tapered wood screws and their nominal diameter should be what is recommended for the screw wire size being used. They allow the correct pilot hole, especially important in hardwoods. Hope this is useful.

Question

What degree are these bits?

Asked on 04/20/2014 by Randy McMahan

Top Answer

The bits are tapered to match the taper of a wood screw. The size of the screw ( 8,10,12) determines the size of the bit you should use. There are charts available to help you choose the right bit. If you are referring to the countersink angle that's another matter.

Question

I need a # 8-- what size is that ?

Asked on 05/24/2013 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

JD has a chart that you can print that provides straight and taper drill sizes (also countersink and bung sizes) for various screw sizes. I have printed the chart and keep it in my drill index/bit storage case. For a #8 wood screw, the chart calls for a 11/64" taper bit for hardwood or 5/32" taper bit for softwood. For a #8 sheetmetal (straight) screw, use a 1/8" or 7/64" straight bit for hardwood/softwood respectively.

Question

what size drill and countersink and bung is recommended for a #8 screw ?

Asked on 03/06/2012 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

11/64 is listed on this web site under tech specs for a #8 screw. I would recommend a 3/8" bung, however I would measure the exact size of your specific screw.

Question

countersinks for fuller tapered drills ?

Asked on 09/25/2011 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Yes. The tapered drill bits work well when fit with a countersink.I would recommend using them when using brass and stainless wood screws. They help the fasteners to hold better.
