"I've been a regular user of the Erbauer Titanium drill bits for some years and have been happy with their performance.
This is my first set of 'Cobalt' bits by Erbauer. They were purchased to drill stainless steel and have proved capable for the task. It is important to try and use the recommended speeds (chart included in kit)

"Used these bits to drill out a sheared off bolt in a London Taxi Chassis.A standard HSS drill bit would not touch it.Used these drills in progressive sizes until the bolt was drilled out and then re tapped the thread.Iff these drills are used with a electric drill at the slowest possible speed using plenty of cutting fluid to keep the bit cool they will do the job."

Excellent drills

, Glenrothes
"Just bought a set of these to use on my car, had tried unsuccessfully to drill out the rivets on my bottom ball joint with HSS and other drills and decided to try these as they were recommended on the MG forum. What a difference, wish I had bought these earlier, drilled through the rivets with ease. Highly recommended by me and at a bargain price too. The case they are supplied in is also a highly professional piece of kit."

Outstanding for price

"Only had to replace my original set bought 2 yrs ago since I left them on a site somewhere.
Very strong, very sharp and last better than non titanium.
Wouldn't have needed to replace had I not been daft. Still very good value.

Exceptional Drillbits
25-Feb-2013
By
, Devon
"These drills are very good on hard and very hard materials. For best results they MUST be adequately lubricated with a suitable cutting oil, and this should be stated on instructions for use. They are not as effective on softer materials - especially wood - as lubrication could spoil the workpiece."

Broke every small bit up to 4m
20-Sep-2012
By
, Trowbridge,Wilts.
"Now left with all the large bits I hardly ever use.I was careful & was only drilling through Aluminium one my Landrover defender.
They started off going through OK but after a few uses not so good then snap-much the same on most drill bit sets.
I would like to buy a decent metal drilling set with ten to twenty of each of the small ones up to 4.5mm.
The Erbauer Titanium set went the same way & I had 2 of those.Now I have 3 sets of 4.5mm & up & I wont pay £36 just to get 6 small pieces.
Someone could make a killing filling this niche market?

"These drills are terrible. They are blunt and brittle. I am an events chippy, I use my tools in a wide variety of scenarios. These drills have given pathetic performance on wood and metal. They come completely blunt so you end up pushing harder and then they snap. You end up with a sore arm and half a box of useless drills."

Cheap but nasty
24-May-2014
By

"We purchased a set of these cobalt drills to extract a broken bolt, we used a small drill to make a pilot hole it shattered, we use a second small drill to finished the pilot. We then used a larger drill to finish the job that shattered.
So we returned to good old HSS to finish the job.
Do not purchase these drill if you intend drill hardened steel."

"Bought these drill bits to drill some broken 12.9 high tensile bolts out, the word cobalt is misleading here as these were worse than ordinary hss drill bits."
