Imperial Wood Drill Set with Countersink 496942
« on: March 17, 2013, 11:00 AM »
Hello Festool, in regard to Drill Set 496942, are all seven drill bits Centrotec???. The product description on page 109 of your 2013 catalog states that the countersink is Centrotec but is silent regarding  the drill bits. Please advise.
Thanks
Ed

Thanks Shane . I just purchased the CXS and was wondering how I could go larger then the 5/16 capacity of the drill chuck. The Drill Set has a 1/2" bit that I might use on some occasions. Thanks again for the fast reply.

Ed, from what I understand, the keyless Jacobs chuck from Festool's larger drills will fit the CXS.
More is never enough.

I can attest that it does fit.  The only downside is that the chuck is wider than the drill itself, so it doesn't look as pretty ;)
