Bit pricey these imo


Once you've used high quality masonry bits, it's impossible to go back to cheap n' nasty drill bits, especially if your house has very tough, solid brickwork.

Lowest price ever on Amazon, good find
Anyone have any experience with both the Dewalt Extreme 2 and these Bosch drill bits?

I was wondering the same thing, I've used the extreme2 Dewalt masonry and HSS drill bits and found them to be excellent, the best masonry drill bit I've ever used, especially with a high torque drill. Previous Bosch drill bits have never been anything above average but these could be different just like the Dewalt extreme2 are great and the standard Dewalt masonry are pretty crap (but about 1/3rd the price)

Similar range level for each manufacturer and similar price points at the mo.

I’ve not used either but various SDS options - would like some good non-SDS options. 😁
Highly recommend these, I have used them on friends homes and recently mine. They drill walls without a problem, even in hammer mode and work with all types of wood. Been using these for years and will get them all their sizes.

My experience is that they are better than the usual cheap rubbish 'brands', you probably won't use all the sizes included, and the Amazon RRP is no doubt approximately 300% overpriced.

Defo get a reputable brand, and just get the sizes you know you will need.
In the comments on Amazon people said they go through everything they've put them up against, even concrete lintel.
Ordered. No brainer.

I agree that the Dewalt extreme 2 are better than the bosch standard drill bits (using with all types of metal at work) but I have found these bosch drill bits to be the best for everything unless it's stainless steel.
I've used these quite a lot, they are the best masonry drills I have ever used. I'll be getting a set.

Always good to hear what other people have found, thanks. I think the problem is that all big brands feel compelled to sell at the budget (cheap crap) sector as well as the semi pro / pro sector. So you end up with Bosch, Dewalt, Makita selling low cost crap drill bits that are pretty much useless for anything other than very light duty, no doubt made for them by some no name Chinese manufacturer. Once you've found a decent drill bit, it's hard to use cheaper, crappier bits!
Any decent steel bits for going through 6-8 mm steel

Toolstation sell some excellent cobalt bits, made by Heller I think.
Agreed on to buy the individual bit needed, nearly bought but no 7mm which I use for Rawl plugs every time so no good out of the box for me..

Used these, and they work fine, but have swapped to the Bosch robust line construction bits, they drill , masonry, wood and metal and last forever, if you see them on a deal ,they are well worth getting a set..

I have given up with cheap drill bits, after years of using them and finding they wouldn't last. The Dewalt extreme are good as they do last if you don't over heat them but they are hard to use with increasing the size of a hole which is a pain when I'm doing a 16mm hole.
I hope these are better than the Bosch green box one I bought for similar price. The pilot hold one broke in wood.

As posted above, cobalt would be better, and slower speed to keep the heat down.

Yep, cold from me, no 7mm
Might be a bit off topic but, can someone recommend a a good drill for the basic DIY work around the house, something good, reliable that won't break the bank. I own a black & decker, that was passed to me from a relative. I find it a bit rubish, not powerfull enough on some masonry surfaces, or might just be the drill bits I'm using, they're the cheap kind. Never wanted to go crazy and buy something that I might not make use of and end up wasting money, but I think it's time to get some decent that will last and make these jobs less of a hassle.
Thanks to the OP. Was about to place an order elsewhere for a set of drills but you've come up trumps.

Do these drill bits fit a standard drill? My other bits are just round at the end, but these have a notch. I assume you don’t need a special drill to use them

Pretty sure they do... Bought for my makita drill so certainly hope they fit. If someone with knowledge of these specific bits to confirm that'd be great.
If they're so great why 2 of 2 sizes? I know they're used more, but I'd rather have a range and replace as needed.

Thanks for that. Any idea why do a lot of sets have size 7 missing?
These are great - as others said. Soon as you use good bits you won’t go back to the work zone crap from Aldi. Only issue is they don’t include 7mm in the set which is a quite common size for plugs.

I'm a moderate DIYer, fitted my own kitchen, bathroom etc. For a reasonably cheap, but good drill, I would go for the Bosch PSB1800. You are unlikely to see a pro using it, but for DIY tasks it's perfectly serviceable

Yes. They will fit any standard drill, so you have no worries. They are excellent drill bits. Once you try them you will not want to use anything else.
Any power drill is only as good as the drill bits you use. It doesn't matter if the drill costs you £200 or £20, if you use cheap drill bits you won't get good results, particularly when drilling into concrete or dense brick.
Thank you; have ordered.
If you’re going to drill in to concrete, it’s probably worth investing £50 in an sds drill which will do a much better job than these
These are brilliant, get through anything.
Heat, just brought a set, after experiencing cheap drill bits that snapped, based on the reviews, don't think I will be disappointed.
