Good qualerty

" In a hurry last night to finish a job punched through stainless steel very quickly held up well even though running them twice as fast as I should have been.
the drill bits also snap in and out of the holder easily not having to push them into a hole when they are bured from spinning in a worn chuck will be a bonus.

" These drills are perfectly OK normal day to day items, however the box is excellent. As the popular sized drills wear I replace them with specialist ones, and find the box ideal for this, "

" Pretty average performance, struggled with 12mm thick stainless an, afterwards, the edge was gone. Cobalt beats these hands down for only a few quid more but not as forgiving and brittle. Take your choice. "

" These drill bits are brilliant for wood and plastic but don't buy them if you want them for metal drilling.
Going nowhere fast probably sums them up and they snap easily.

" I'm not impressed with these at all. Within the first week, three bits had broken and I had found that two were bent before I had even used them!
The case is reasonable quality but the lining is poor quality and the titanium coating is very thin and comes off after a couple of uses.
If you use them for drilling plastic and the occasional bit of metal then they'll probably be ok but if you're drilling steel and aluminium regularly, like me, then give them a miss. "

" If you drill wood get wood bits, if you drill metal get metal bits, these do not properly do either, good for sponge cake.
