Is it cheaper then as it doesn’t say anything about it being cheaper on their website?

Definitely cheaper then normally - usually around the £22 mark for this set.

If not sure Google it I think amazon have it at the same price ( reduced) but thought I'd post it to screwfix so it's available for everyone

I agree, these are awful.

I do hope that’s a sarcastic comment
For someone as useless as me with DIY who is trying to improve this is ideal for the likes of me just for stuff about the house. I doubt a proper professional who uses a drill would be paying this much for a drill set. Just ordered it myself, thanks
Bought for £25 a year ago and I've got my moneys worth. For home/DIY use I've no complaints. Other than a couple of the smallest everything is still going strong.

FWIW a number of professionals I've spoken to buy the cheapest bits for general use as wear and tear means they're going to blunt or break quickly anyway

What do you recommend/use?


These aren’t keepers but they’ll do the job. I buy a set every couple of years as some of the bits break, wear, get lost etc as would any other set quality or otherwise. I’m a professional user. They’re handy for the odd size you need now and then. Masonry drill bit however won’t last that long...much better out there although I do get thru them
Edited by: "classygear" 10th Jul
There's nothing wrong with these for occasional use... But if you're replacing reasonably regularly I'd suggest it's a false economy - buy right, buy once.
Come on now guys...these threads seriously get laughable. Is anyone that is going to buy this really going to think it is anything other than a home handiwork kit.

It's the same with any mechanic scoffing at anything lesser than Snap on tools etc.

It's as if anyone within these trades that need reliable tools that last for their everyday jobs resent anyone buying inferior quality tools and using the initiative to fix things themselves...scared of job security or something lol.
I brought similar bosch not professional drill bit set and there still going strong after nearly 9 years, I have used them several times a year and they're fine, this set is great value and fine for most.
Home gamer stuff made from nitride coated chinesium. Any more than occasional light use and they will fail which won't be a problem because it will have done its job.

95% of people will need nothing more, hang a few pictures, stick some shelves up, general household stuff etc. £17.99 isn't bad for what you get if you keep that in mind. It's all relative. I built a 3x3 shed with something similar and very little of it survived. Got the job done though

Buying decent drill bits.
As I’ve said drill bits are a good few pounds not a few pounds for loads

Are you saying every drill bit that is "a good few pounds" is good?

if not your comment is about as useful as you say these drill bits are.

This set looks identical to one I have that is branded dewalt.
I'm sure it's a cheapo set rebadged by bosch.
To be fair I still have most of the bits from mine which I bought 5 yrs ago most of the drill bits are very rusty but still put a hole in the wall (just used the 6mm one to put up a coat hook for the boy)

Generally I use my milwaukee shock wave bits. These won't survive an impact driver they shatter) none of the pz2 bits survived putting in a floor in my loft so I got some wera bits to sun in which are amazing (but a set of 8 wera bits cost the same as this whole kit)

I think they want a brand recommendation or specific product as brands often don't mean a thing (when it comes to consumables anyways).

There's many a thread saying specific singular Bosch bits are better than any "professional" branded product (whereas it's the opposite for their tools, avoid their consumer crap only buy blue professional).

Likewise, Hitachi and DeWalt always score high on bits even Irwin whereas the best tool brands like Milwaukee are a hard avoid on consumables like bits.

Tldr - It's hit and miss, some bits are good, some are cheap crap, all will break or blunt eventually, half the time it's user error and you can buy bags of specific bits online fairly cheap if you'll run through em.
Can these be resharpened? Was wondering if their colour indicates a coating which makes them useless once the original cutting edge has worn
