Its not rocket sience on how to use a counter-sink bit. All you do, is push down until the drill bit stops.

Or just get a drill powerful enough where you don't need to use a bit at all. That's what I do.

Au contraire chevyaudio. Predrill then just drill in tihe screw until it's just past the wood level FTW. Haven't split any wood in at least a few months now. And if I had, then the box wasn't for sale.

i woulnd't recommend that technique.

also , believe there are different types of countersinking bits. if i were to push until it stops.. it won't stop , it'll go through the wood.

C'mon now, I've even told you how to do it without a countersinking bit.

or you can get a nice drill bit w/ the same diameter of the screw you're using and just drill in slightly.

I havent split any wood in at least a few months either. but i havent built anything in an equal ammount of time.

I love my counter sinking bit...it cost me, but I can push with all of my force with my DeWalt Cordless and it will stop at the same point every time.

That's fine, but I've been doing it forever with no bad results. :hihorse:
