Lowest price ever says the website that rhymes with mammal, mammal mammal.

I've always countersunk the old fashion way, using two bits. I always run into this set, but they're always $20 something bucks. For $13.28.. why not?

These are awesome, it's great to not have to get out 2 different bits to drill a countersink hole. Good price, but they're on sale for $10 at Ace hardware every few months.

I had no idea that there was a bit that did this, or that this type of drilled hole is called a countersink. . I've just been using 2 bits to do this.

Hey, never knew they went as low as $10 at Ace. But maybe there is still value in this thread since not all of us have a Ace nearby, or are willing to go pick it up. I probably wouldn't bother since I normally countersink with two bits. But since I got prime, why not.

Product question: Why the tapered drill bits? I've never used them for anything, and am not sure what to think about that.

These bits are designed to predrill perfectly sized and shaped holes for #6, #8, and #10 sized wood screws to be sunk the correct depth with a maximum of holding power and no splitting.

Good deal usually buy 2 set's a year. Don't use #10 that much but good to have extra set on hand.

I know that, but the drill bits themselves are tapered (not talking about the countersink). Does that do anything to the holding power of the screw threads? I thought having a straight drill hole was always optimal.

Actual "wood screws" are a tapered thread, although mostly people use straight sheetmetal, drywall, or cabinet screws these days that don't have a taper. Either way, the tapered bit gives you a bit more clearance at the start of the pilot hole so you're less likely to split the material.

These are good, and great for the price, but if you want something that starts sharper and lasts longer, the Fuller bits are nice. They're more like $15/each, though, and harder to find locally.

I had the same feeling until I finally caved and bought a countersink bit for a board and batten DIY - it was really nice to have perfectly sized holes for the screws without double drilling. It is also great for angled drilling to tighten two boards together.

Bought them from ACE. Nice. Then saw harbor freight has a set for 7 bucks or so. No experience with them though.
