Most holes are deburred, in part, with countersinks or chamfering tools. There are at least 100 different designs of countersinks and chamfers. They come in high-speed steel and various carbide grades, and most are available in 60, 82, and 90° included angles. This chapter describes their most common attributes. The advantage of countersinks is that they can be applied on-machine, as well as in a hand-deburring operation. It is a quick operation and, sometimes, it is all the deburring required. In many instances, the small burrs made by the chamfer tool must be polished off. There are a variety of tool types available. Some of the more common types used for deburring are discussed and illustrated in the following sections. Normally, one desires to have machine tools apply countersinks and remove any large burrs, but when precision chamfers are required it may be necessary to resort to hand chamfers.
