A versatile tool used for rivet hole prepping – Available in HSS Cobalt or solid carbide
These straight shank piloted countersinks are used regularly by Airbus, Rolls Royce, Mclaren F1, Lotus F1, Williams F1 and many more.
An extremely versatile tool which is designed predominantly for preparing an existing hole for riveting, but also used for precise
countersinking when the extra support of a pilot is required. These popular tools are also known as a ‘stem’ or ‘open’ countersinks.
Supplied in 90º, 100º and 120º as standard with other angles such as 82º available on request with little increase in price or lead time.
See page 8, 9 and 10 of our catalogue for more information

Microstop Piloted HSS Cobalt Countersinks with Integral or Removable Pilot
Microstop piloted countersinks when used with a microstop cage can be adjusted to the required depth in increments of 0.001”.
Widely used within the aerospace industry to aid the huge task of countersinking the millions of holes to produce an aircraft.
These tools come with standard corner radius’ to form a precise rounded edge between the countersink angle and the pre-drilled hole.
The standard corner radius’ have been chosen to suit common aircraft rivets. However, our specialist machinery enables us to produce
any angle and corner radius to suit more bespoke applications. We supply these with metric or imperial threads to suit all common
microstop cages. See page 11 and 12 of our catalogue for more information
Supplied in 90º, 100º and 120º as standard with other angles such as 82º available on request with little increase in price and
Cages are also available for purchase on request
