RUKO Countersink Bits Added

AutomationDirect’s line of RUKO countersink bits now include bits to accommodate UNC, or imperial (inch), fasteners. The round shank, 82-degree taper countersinks are CBN ground from fully hardened, high-speed steel blanks which creates a sharper and more durable cutting edge with precise tolerances.

Available in diameter sizes ranging from ¼-inch to 1-inch, and in individual pieces or a five-piece set, prices start at $10.00.
