Rated 1 out of 5Â by Hippogriff Could not even drill 1 brick
I needed to drill into some bricks where an iron gate was to be affixed. I bought this new masonry drill bit thinking that it would do the job, I expected that it would be like drilling into butter.
I found that it could not drill a single hole in a single brick.
It started to smoke and the point went blue and dulled. I had to use an older drill bit I had, that actually worked fine. I had only bought a new one because I thought that the old one was nearing the end of its life - sadly, this new bit reached the end of its life very prematurely. Disappointed.

I buy these for small fixing jobs around the house. The walls in my house are the hardest I have ever come across. For bigger jobs I use my SDS drill, but it's a bit of a monster for picture hanging etc, so I use an 18v combi drill.
I have found these to be the best I have tried so far.

Excellent drill bit. Makes light work of normal masonry drilling.

It's not the most exciting product in the Screwfix catalogue, but does the job it's designed for well. I get through a few of these with the red wall plugs and at the reasonable price, you can't complain.
