Countersinking

Countersinking creates a V shaped recess near the surface of a hole.

The process is often used to recess a flat head screw or to chamfer hole edges. 

Compatible materials include almost any hard material including metals and hard plastics. The tooling used is generally stock unless unusual angles are required.

The process of countersinking is often done on CNC milling machines, lathes and drill presses.
