"Only used these bits for the last three weeks, but so far well up to the job (mostly wood and upvc, don't know about steel performance). Good buy"

Average drills, excellent box

"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,"

Good and Bad

"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.

Unrelibale
11 May 2014
By EssexEngineer

"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."

Poorly described

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