"I bought these drill bits having read others reviews and having blunted and broken several other bits trying to put holes in a lintel to hang a vertical blind. These Erbauer drill bits are perfect for this job. The 2.5 mm bit went through the lintel with ease, no effort required - six hoes drill in as many minutes. Then the 4 mm followed by the 6 mm - no fuss no bother and they appear to be as sharp to me as they were. Definitely a case of the right tool for the job."
"Used these drill bits to drill through a steel lintel to install a blind. Worked really well, especially reducing the drill speed and adding some WD40 to the bit made it easy to cut through. Bought these on offer, so looking to be good value."
"Bought to in desperate need to drill out a brake disc retaining screw that sheared off, and they worked fantastically as per the other reviews on here! Just remember slower speeds and lubricant/cooling if some kind ie wd40 or water or something and your metal bits should last a long time!"
"I'm not one for writing reviews but was so pleased with this product I just had to let others know! This set is amazing value for money and performed without fault. I had a snapped exhaust manifold bolt that would not budge, after trying everything to get it out I decided to cut my loses and drill it out and tap a new thread in. I worked up from the 4 all the way up to the 6.5 and each bit worked fantastic! All you need is to not rush and keep it lubricated (I used wd40) and they work a treat! Would recommend these bits all day long."
"Having the joyous DIY task of fitting window blinds, my excitement was further increased to find a steel lintel that my existing drill bits were not of suitable standard to make any impact. A quick visit to the Screwfix website saw this set of what appeared to be very good value HSS drill bits - with a 'worth a punt' attitude the purchase was made same day. To say that I was gobsmacked at how quickly and effortlessly the bit made of the task of drilling 6 holes through the lintel would be an understatement. For the price I cannot endorse these bits highly enough - certainly from a DIY perspective, those of a more serious building persuasion may have other opinions"
"Bargain price for an exceptional product. I am a DIY user, but on a very regular basis. I used to buy cheap drills and considered them to be a "use once and then bin it" solution. Bad idea. Had a tough project once and cheap drills didn't even make an impression. Bought some of these to try and have never looked back- cut through the problem material like it was cheese. And when these are this good, why even consider paying more? Fabulous!"
"Having just snapped a couple of HSS bits, I needed a new #2 and #3 HSS bit to provide a hole in for attaching a weather proof seal using a Stormguard Garage Seal and Screwfix Prodrive Flange Self-Tappers 8 x ½ to a steel garage door. It was more economic to buy this set than a couple of individual bits.
The bits performed very well, and quickly provided the 8 holes required."
"The Erbauer HSS Drill bits are extremely good! They are great value for money making light work of most metals and similar materials. You can't go wrong with a product that is so reliable, you certainly get more that what you pay for!"
