Customer Reviews for DeWalt 5mm Extreme 2 HSS Drill Bit
"This is a very, very good bit for metal drilling of almost any kind.
The magic is in the tip, which not only ensures that the bit stays put without any need to use a centre punch, but also starts the hole much more quickly than using the full diameter alone. It's a bit like having an automatic pilot hole.
Drilling is fast and clean, which is a boon when using cordless drills. I haven't yet had to sharpen one, which might be tricky, but now seldom use any other HSS drill.
An excellent product and very highly recommended."
"I think there is something seriously wrong with the bit I bought it didn’t even drill one hole in aluminium. I used a centre punch so that the drill didn’t slip I started drilling the pilot bit of the hole and it appeared to stop, I looked at the tip and it didn’t appear to have any sharp edges. I persisted and the drill bent, then snapped. I can only assume it wasn’t tempered correctly. I will definitely not buy another one."
