A whole what?

But they put the price up from £7.49 to £14.99 so they can claim the huge price drop.

For that reason alone it's cold from me.

Shrewsbury not being part of your world, that may be so, but there is stock here.

These are fine for occasional DIY. But wear safety eyewear as the cheap drill stuff can shatter.

You can if there all rubbish,a bad tool can ruin a job as any "Pro" will tell you.
Them ones that are on the Ideal World channel seem like magic not cheap though,that can have the tip put against a electric grinder then drill through steel etc with ease.

I need a decent set. I guess the ones on Ideal World are probably the best or one of the best?

Heat for this deal though.

The reviews don't look bad for the money.... some at Fareham

The ones on TV are a bit of a con.

They are cobalt coated and nowhere near as good as they show on tv.

What do you want to drill? Wood, masonary, alloy, steel?

Would prefer a set that did the lot and hopefully lasts a lifetime.

Your not going to get a set that last a lifetime buddy.

It all depends how often you plan to use them.

If your using daily you will need to spend a bit more, especially with the HSS metal bits. Same goes with if your drilling anything harder than mild steel.


Ill asume your buying just to have incase you need them and using ocasionaly and in that case you can spend a lot less.

As a set, this dewalt one at screwfix is not bad and will last a while for general DIY.
Link
If drilling metal apply a spot of cutting lubricant or even motor oil.
Add on the flat bits below for larger sized holes

If your buying seperate sets id go for these cobalt metal drills link
Id use them for metal and wood. Same applies with a spot of cutting compound when drilling metals.

Masonary id go for these link

Flat drills for larger sizes in wood and plastics link

Cutting lubricant when drilling metals.link

Now thats just a budget recommendation for general DIY although would also be suitable for light trade use.

If your going to be tapping any holes you will need to get drills in tapping sizes as well.

Ive not looked for best prices on any of those items

Hope this helps.

Id use a mitre or table saw for the bread mate.
Nice even slices.

Jigsaw would be good for carving meat though so wont go to waste.
