Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp drills Bought these to drill holes in VW van floor to fit 10 mm bolts for a bed. They worked really well and cut through body steel very easily. Also used to drill out a ceased bolt with similar result . Too early to guess how long they will keep this sharp but already longer than cheap ones

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor. Described as very strong and durable, for all types of alloys and steels, I chose this set because it sounded like it would be perfect for most DIY tasks I may have. I started to drill and with it barely making a scratch, the drill bit started to glow red and was blunted in moments. I used another bit, the next size up, and the same result occurred. The hole i wanted remains un-drilled. Very poor item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little disappointed After the last drill bit in a previous (different brand) set finally gave in I decided to purchase some more metal drill bits. As I have a fair amount of Bosch tools that have lasted well I thought I would give these a try. Unfortunately the 4mm drill but broke (as in shattered into many pieces) going though 0.9mm steel. They did feel good quality and for the 0.5mm I got out of it it was fantastic... The sales assistant behind the counter was as surprised as I was that it had broken so badly being a Bosch product. Maybe it was just my luck it was a bad batch, who knows!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misleading With words like "X-Pro" and "Metal" used to describe this product, I was disappointed to have the drill bit literally melt, smoke, and change shape - obviously I have no idea of the tensile strength of what I'm drilling, so have no understanding if I'm pushing this product beyond it's capability. As a home owner doing straight forward DIY I'm simply drilling a hole through what appears to be an existing 5mm steel fence post support. My recommendation is to consider other products before wasting your money on a one hole drillbit.
