    - Counter-sinking: The process of chamfering entrance of a drilled hole is called as counter-sinking. Recess is provided for counter-sink rivet or counter-sink flat head screw to fit in the hole.

    - The tool used for this operation is called as counter-sink.

    - Counter boring: In this process, any existing hole is enlarged to a larger diameter. The surface at the bottom of larger diameter is made flat. In this process, the depth of enlarged hole is greater when compared with spot-facing operation.
