Every toolbox should have them

" A versatile drill bit for every scenario. This bit is particularly useful when drilling through multiple materials eg timber frame into masonry behind. Really can't fault it, I keep a selection of sizes in my day to day toolbox and they've made life easier on many occasions. "

" Bought this to drill hole in the very top corner of a window frame from inside. Done the job perfectly, the extra length allowed a real tight position of the hole without damaging the decoration. Clean smooth drilling with no problems. Excellent. "

" Used this to widen steel bracket holes for Cast Iron downpipe; and then proceeded to drill through render and sandstone without changing bit. The bit went through 3mm steel and then cement render and sandstone with no problem. Quality. "

" I don't what this is like in other materials but in wood it is brilliant.
I bought it to makes holes for coach bolts through 4" uprights and 2" crossmembers. The phrase 'like a knife through butter' seems appropriate. It didn't clog or jam and made the holes in seconds using an 18v cordless drill. "

" Really do what they say on the tin. Great for drilling tiles, no sliding about, great for use with hammer fixings - straight through the timber into the wall, will drill a lot of masonry without hammer action. Don't use much else lately. "

" Being a trademan I get through many bits. These will wear out but they last a good while and how much time is saved by not having to change bits from wood to masonary. Excellent value. "

Didn't meet expectations.
13 May 2014

" I bought a set of these drills for drilling prior to securing timber battens and studs to masonry using expanding frame fixings. I hoped they'd cut through the timber and masonry in one operation.
I used a 250 x 8mm bit in a percussion drill and found that the bit would not cut wood after it had cut masonry and had to revert to two operations by using a wood drill followed by the multipurpose drill which remained able to cut masonry.
My guess is that the bit lost its temper as it got hot when applied to the masonry and it was dulled quickly.
I'll keep the bits for masonry but I don't recommend for wood.
I also tried a smaller 5mm bit to drill out some stubborn steel bolts. It cut but was slow compared with a cobalt drill.
A jack of all trades but a master of none I'm afraid. This is a shame since its a promising idea. "
