Very good for the money

"Bought this pack because I didn't have my usual drills with me. Used it for drilling into plastic, took quite a bit of pressure to get started but OK on wood. Did the job for a bargain price."

Value for your money 5*
17-Jun-2014
By
, Burgess Hill
"Better and cheaper than a flat wood drill you get 5 for the price of one wood drill elsewhere.
Cuts are good but you must use correct cutting speed. I have used 4 of the cutters and cannot be more pleased. I have put two rating of 5 stars and three of 4 stars this is only because they are drills and would require honeing at some point.

Good Quality Bits
25-Nov-2012
By
, Aylesbury, Bucks
"We purchased this set as a single 30 mm bit was not in the screwfix range, as it turns out this was very good value and the quality is great.
Comes complete in a handy case with the three other sizes so very good value for money

Really pleased
18-Oct-2012
By
, Cheshire
"I was a little sceptical because of the very low price but decided that as I wanted them for a specific job only, even if they were rubbish they would at least do that job but I was pleasantly surprised. Not only did they cut accurately they stayed sharp for a good time. I also found them easy to hone. All in all exceptional value for money."

Does The Trick
04-Aug-2009
By
, Bedford
"The only tool that screwfix sell that cuts a 15mm hole in wood. Does a nice neat job, perfect for the holes used by cams in kitchen cupboards, so when one is missing from the manufacturer, you can use this to make your own. Also includes larger sizes. Tends to get blunt quickly on laminated surfaces."

Forstner bits
27-Aug-2014
By
, Norfolk
"I bought the 5 piece Forstner bit set only because I needed to drill a 15mm hole to take 15mm cam locks in a piece of timber 20mm thick. To my surprise it worked very well without any penetration through the overall thickness. Highly delighted."

Great bits for the price
03-Apr-2014
By
, Glasgow
"The bits come in a good box to keep them safe. They are well packaged and come with the protective caps.
I used them on both soft and hard wood and they cut ok. Maybe not as good as some but then again this set is cheaper than some individual bits."

"Only needed one of the bits to drill the holes to hang the door on an integrated washing machine. Did the job. Useful tool and at a reasonable price compared to elsewhere. Online purchase and collection from my local store saved time. Happy to recommend - and will use Screwfix again. Thanks"

Simple Clearance item
19-Sep-2008
By
, Nottingham
"Not much that you can say about threaded bar!
However, it is "to size" and worked well for the assembly work that I was doing.
I was pleased that the ends weren't burred over as threaded bar often is - I hate having to re-thread the ends because nuts don't fit! This was fine.

Cheap and not so cheerful
06-Oct-2014
By
, Milton Keynes
"It is cheap. But it is not that good. I had to do some work on it to get a decent cut off it, so lots of sharpening, grinding and cleaning the rough edges. My overall advice: if you have the time, will to do somework on a brand new tool and have various files, slip stones and sand paper, you can get a decent cut off these. However, it will work cheaper to buy decent bits in the first place and save your time for work."

Forstner Drill Bits
25-Aug-2014
By
, Norfolk
"I needed to drill 2 holes in a kitchen cabinet door for an integrated washing machine. The individual TCT hinge cutter was expensive to buy for just 2 holes, so opted for these Forstner bits, only needed the 35mm bit so got 4 others free, so to speak. I found it OK to use, did the job required, hole was just a little oversize to the existing hinge holes but not a problem. These are obviously cheaper end of the market, but for occasional use they should be fine."

You get what you pay for!
20-Sep-2010
By
, Newbury
"Needed a 30mm bit for a relatively small job so bought this set. The bit stood up reasonably well all considered, drilling 6 holes into oak newel posts - but only just. Use once, throw away. As for fast and effortless - I wouldn't go too fast personally, they are not really up to it."
