    Default Please help me identify this Drill

    spot-drill.jpgspot-drill-2.jpg
    I have searched Google, MSC Direct, and Grainger and cannot find these. Not sure if this is a Spot Drill or Center Drill or Counter Sink, the only mark on it is 90Deg, 0.500dia x 3.25in long, carbide, double end. I need to order more, but the last time they were ordered was before I got here and no one knows where the last boss ordered them. Please point me in the direction of a vendor, or correct nomenclature or part #.

    Thank you,

    Its not a drill its a countersink. Were you chamfering holes with it?

    I would call that a chamfering mill. If it is carbide I would think it would be hard to find with the Weldon flats.

    Here are a few, various flute counts. They're double ended but there's no photo and the Weldon shank flat isn't mentioned. There's also a 2-month lead time on these from MSC:

    Carbide

    A bunch more if HSS:

    It looks to be 2 flute and not carbide. I would guess a chamfer mill. The pictures aren't great but it might have a carbide cutting edge brazed on.

    What kind of cutting were you doing with it?

    You might try looking at 90 deg drill/mills for replacements.

    If you're using it for countersinking/chamfering, I would recommend you look at replacing it with one of these MAFord tools. Best countersink I've found yet.

    You can also buy them as a set of 6 different sizes. I keep one of these in my toolbox at all times.

    I would think that is a milling cutter. These may be the modern version:
