Decent budget drill set
12 May 2013
By carrierbag

"Use them properly and theres no reason why they won't last you for years.
I've used most of these drills nearly everyday in the last month drilling alloy and stainless steel, they're still as sharp as the day i bought them

Good value drill set
29 Jan 2011
By akm3434
, Telscombe Cliffs
"I bought this set of drills as I did not want a set with driver and masonary bits etc, only HSS drill bits. For the money they are good value and come in a handy tin with each drill housed in a hole with the actual drill size printed next to it. Another good thing is that the drills do not fall out of place when the tin is closed. I have to consider the price of every thing I buy for my workshop like most people and although I would like a top branded and quality set of drills, for me, a DIYer and hobbyist the set is ideal as I have a bench grinder and I can sharpen tham as and when required. So to conclude another good value set from Screwfix"

A good kit
27 Aug 2011
By Zebedee
, South-East
"These drills are OK provided that you remember to drill holes in steel slowly, taking care not to overheat them. Go up in stages, if you try to drill a 10mm hole in 6mm steel on the fastest setting the drill has they WILL go blunt very quickly. Drill a pilot hole and go up in 2mm stages and they will last for ages."

cheap but not very strong
16 Jun 2014
By Calla87

"Bought these drill bits as i needed a 13mm drill bit and everything else was very expensive. Did the job i bought them for and were very cheap so im pretty happy with my purchase however for future jobs one of the bits caught/snagged and the torque from the drill twisted the entire drill bit!!!! Never had this happen with my other expensive drill bits........."

Waste of money and time
9 Mar 2014
By tyotoshi

"They may be ok for wood but they are no good for steel and certainly won't touch stainless even with coolant. The thinned down flutes mean they snap if you apply the necessary pressure and if you reduce it they just rub, overheat and instantly blunt! Don't waste your time."

"If you want a drill container buy them, if you want decent drill bits dont bother, typical cheap drill bit set they maybe ok drilling wood but no good for metal. Some of the bits are bent and dont run true. Do not waste your money pay a little more for a branded set"

Poor

By Fishhead

"Noticed that several of the drills were poorly sharpened, so tested 10 of them on a scrap bit of aluminium, a couple of the bits would not cut, others cut off centre. At this price did not expect quality, but did expect them to function.
Box is nice though.

"Please, do not waste your time on buying this product and then having to return. I opened the box, picked up 4mm bit and to my own amazement noticed that it was bent. There was no point in checking others. I went into trouble of returning the whole set next day and will have to search for something usable."
