Good value for money no nonsense drill set. Nothing else to say.

I've owned this set of drill bits for a few years now. I don't do a huge amount of drilling in thick metal but the need does arise from time to time so I wasn't prepared to shell out a huge amount of money on drill bits. I needed a drill bit to drill some 13mm holes in 4mm thick box section. I saw these and for not much more than a single 13mm bit I thought it worth a shot especially after reading the mostly positive reviews here. I certainly wasn't disappointed the 13mm bit stood up to drilling several holes on that job and has been used several times since in ally and steel. Still feels very sharp. I have used many of the other sizes and been equally satisfied. The only slight negative is that the 10mm bit is a bit out of true so bashes some nice hexagonal shaped holes rather than the round holes that the others manage. I have managed to snap a couple of the very small ones but this is more due to my heavy handedness than the drill bit quality. I was compelled to write this review after just drilling a load of 5mm holes in 8mm thick steel. Went through like a hot drill bit through butter. I always use cutting fluid when drilling thicker than 2mm steel. Great cheap, sharp set of drill bits that get the job done with no hassle. I'm gonna pick up a 'spare' set next time I'm in store again.

Well they say you get what you pay, but after reading some of the reviews and went for it bits burned out quite fast or clogged up when going through ali not impressed

They are not the amazing value, great quality bits others are making them out to be. Definitely cannot live with stainless steel. I tried a pilot hole with 2.5mm and was only capable of scratching the surface. Found another 2.5mm HSS bit I had and drilled 5 holes in the stainless, no problem. Folllowed up with a 6mm out of this box. Did 1 hole and couldn't do another!
