DeWalt 13mm Extreme 2 HSS Drill Bit
You get what you pay for.
I had to drill a number of holes in thick (40mm) steel so I decided to buy a more expensive branded drill.
I was unsure of the point profile as I hadn't encountered this before.
However, it went through a dozen or so holes without struggling - just make sure you keep a little oil lubricant to keep it cool, and don't force it!

DeWalt 13mm Extreme 2 HSS Dril
Drilled 6 holes and this bit went blunt. Screwfix replaced then the same thing happened, both times drilling into mild steel. I used with quite a powerfull drill (1800w)

Yes good drill bit, When using the driil on steel use a cutting on. It has lasted a lot longer than other drill bits of a similar price.

Amazing drill bit
I bought this drill bit to drill 7mm steel on a canal boat. As i had already chipped three other HSS drill bits, I didn't hold much hope! How wrong i was! The ground tip not only stops the bit wandering, but helps to bore a smaller hole in the centre for the outer flutes to take out the remainder. Although the cost is quite high it will save you buying five more cheaper drill bits to do the job. At the end of the day i had drilled over sixty holes with this bit and it was as sharp as when i took it out of the sleeve. At nearly Â£60 for the 29 piece set, i would buy a set and save money!
