The tapered bits are both a feature and a detriment. If the screws you use have a tapered shank, then these are great. However if your screws have a consistent shank diameter, tapering only at the very tip, then they'll bind towards the bottom of the hole. This might not be a problem in softwoods, but can cause problems with screw depth and splitting in harder woods.

Most screws I see these days have a consistent shank diameter, but old-timey style wood screws have the tapered shank that these bits are made for.

Can the bits be replaced within each countersink shaft?

You probably could. The bits are skinnier at the tip and get a little thicker in diameter closer to the end instead of uniform diameter. Thats the only difference between these drill bits and normal ones.

The description on the Amazon listing indicates that replacement tapered bits are available, so yes, you can replace the bit. Though, tapered bits typically aren't immediately available at most hardware stores.

This is great level of detail. I have an old countersink set from Craftsman that works in a different way. The old Craftsman has a consistent shank and the collet slips over the end, and clips in place to adjust to the depth of the screw head.

Honestly, I have done some furniture restoration where this tapered set from DeWalt would have been great. However, for the vast majority of modern wood screws, a non-tapered set would be better. Perhaps the old Craftsman is available on Ebay or at a local swap meet, or even they may still make the set, for all I know (comes in a case, also, and I love sets in cases). YMMV, but just FYI for the tool obsessed and fellow OCD peeps like me.

So should we not get this if most screws have consistent diameter?

Got these last time. The bit wobbles because it was not in line with the countersunk end. It didn't matter how much I adjusted the screws to move the drill bit side to side. Good luck centering your hole.

Seems there was a batch with some quality control issues. That said the two times I have purchased were not affected.

Also, the taper does not create a problem for straight shaft screws on any wood I have used them on. I imagine only extremely dense woods like ipe or something would create a problem. Pine, cedar, cypress, walnut, plywood, spruce and I assume any other soft to medium woods would not mind.
