Great for drilling high tensile steel!
from Trevorton, PA, United States
Comments about Bosch Tools 18 Piece Drill Bit Set:
I bought this set because I had to shorten the wheelbase of a tandem axle feed truck by four feet and opted to just redrill all of the holes instead of cutting the frame. These bits drilled through the frame steel like it was wood. Granted a slow drill and cutting oil helped but these bits deserve all of the credit!! They made a tough job very easy!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Professional
Don't use these on wood
(0 of 1 customers found this review helpful)
"Made in China"
The bits are manufactured in china and quality suffers because of this. But don't worry, the case is made in the USA. The larger bits on the set I purchased are fairly good with definitive points to prevent walking. The smaller bits do not have a definitive point, but rather a spade or flat tip from not being cut properly. This causes the smaller bits to walk substantially, even when using a punch.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Got these today Put in drill press to cut larger hole in mower blade Hole was 3/8 needed to be 1/2 . 1/8 hard steel. Cut half way and was dull Drill press was on slow speed and used light pressure. Not happy at all
did not come with 7/16 bit

About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer
the bits cut fast and stay sharp. If you are drilling nice wood then you will have to do some surface work after because it blows through the hold to fast. The only complaint is that it didn't come with a 7/16 bit which I use regularly. My fault for not reading close enough. I ordered the bosch 7/16 bit to go with this kit for another $8 but then you have to modify the case to fit the bit in it. For these reason I would not recommend the set to a person that does a lot but it would be great for the average DIYer.
Awesome Bit Set
I was tired of using cheap drill bits so I spent a little more on and man was it worth it. These bits chew through wood like a beaver. I will not use anything else from now on.
from Montreal, QC, Canada
Used to buying regular inexpensive drill bits, after a short period you just keep recycling them . so When I bought these, they just seam to stay sharp.
