New carbide-tipped tool enables users to drill a pilot hole and tapered countersink in one step in materials including hardwood, plywood, decking material, solid surface, and softwoods

Farmingdale, N.Y. – March 20, 2013 – Amana Tool , manufacturer of industrial-quality carbide-tipped, solid carbide and replacement carbide cutting tools, today announced immediate availability of its carbide-tipped countersink with non-marring adjustable ball bearing depth stop. The new tool enables woodworkers, furniture makers, cabinet makers and deck builders to create pilot holes and varied- depth countersinks in a variety of materials without causing burnout or other marks. Amana'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.

This unique new countersink #55225 features an adjustable, heavy-duty, revolving depth-stop with a no-thrust ball bearing for quick and easy adjustment of the countersink depth without scratching or burning surfaces. These tools combine our well-known, long lasting carbide tipped countersinks with the unique, adjustable & heavy duty revolving depth-stoppers with a no-thrust ball bearing. The user-friendly design enables control of the drill length and its replacement, without the need to disassemble the depth-stop.

With Amana's carbide-tipped countersink with adjustable ball bearing depth stop, woodworkers can drill a pilot hole and tapered countersink in one step to help guide screws during project assembly. Users can adjust the depth of both the pilot hole and countersink so that the resulting opening is either flush with the surface or recessed. The resulting countersinks can be shallow to accommodate a screw only or deeper to allow for insertion of a plug. The countersink also features an opening to allow for chip evacuation in materials including hardwood, plywood, decking material, solid surface, and softwoods. 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. Frank Misiti, Amana Tool technical director, said, "With our new non-marring adjustable countersink, woodworkers can create beautiful cabinetry, furniture and decking free of burns or other surface marks that other tools on the market can leave behind. By manufacturing the industry's only carbide-tipped countersinks, Amana has helped fulfill the needs of woodworkers seeking affordable tools that deliver high-quality results."
