Drawing the three straight construction lines was unnecessary, as you can see in my Hexagon.fcstd file.

That's what we call a countersunk hole, also called a countersink
. At the moment, there is no feature for it, but hopefully it will be added to the next version of FreeCAD.
In the meanwhile we have to fall back on workarounds. For a metric flat head screw creating a Chamfer is OK because the head angle is 90 degrees and the chamfer does a 45 degree slope on the selected edge.
But for UTS flat head screws (UTS stands for Unified Thread Standard and is used only in the US and Canada), it won't work as the head angle is 82 degrees. Gee, why not make it an even 90 degrees??? It's just another stupid arbitrary value as with the whole damn imperial/US system. (The fact I use it everyday does not mean I have to like it)
In that case, it becomes a little more complicated, with a very convoluted workaround if you want to stay with Part Design features.
