    Hi,
    maybe someone know good and cheap supplier for this type of drill bits? (subland? step drill?)
    I found a few suppliers but they are a bit too expensive for me, M6 bit over 40+p&p

    Thanks

    Is this for counterboring caphead bolts? If so, why not use a proper counterbore?

    Hi birchi,
    yes, for cap head bolts, Thanks for the links!
    I've seen these drill bits, but I was not sure about them, since I'm a carpenter, so was looking for something similar to my tools

    Thanks

    That's a countersink not a counterbore? Big difference between the two. I also had a quick search for counterbores with a combined pilot drill so that you could effectively drill and counterbore without changing tools but came up blank. I've worked in engineering for many years but have never seen such a tool. Or at least not a proper one. I guess you'd have to get a lump of tool steel and make your own or make one by grinding a suitably sized drill bit.

    i must have dreamed them up then i was sure i had seen them before.ive got to use some counter sink allen bolts plan is to put in a pilot holes then manually counter sink the material on the bench drill,i can get by but would have prefered them to have that pilot guide on the bottom like those flat bottomed counter bores do

    Sorry, I misunderstood...I thought you meant pilot DRILL and countersink combined. There are things like these, but they look a bit Mickey Mouse to be honest...

    I mostly prefer to lock the work piece and then drill, change to tool and countersink. Bit of a PITA but it gives the best accuracy and squareness. If it's not too fussy, I use a cordless drill.
