If these were Dorma or Presto they would cost £100 plus, so plenty of heat from me.

Would be all over these if they were Kryptonite coated Heat added

Dorma Bits are now made on the cheap in south America. Heat added

Thanks op was looking for a cheap set today for some light drilling work. This is just the job

I bought these last year and found them useless apart from when drilling plastic or ally. No Heat from me sorry :-(
having said that the box is handy when you source some tidy drills!

I've never understood why people say ally.

A cobalt coating is not the same as a cobalt alloy. Cobalt alloy drills are good, a cobalt coating isn't worth bothering with. Bear in mind that even Silverline (cheap tat tools) want £30 for a 19 piece set of cobalt drills.

Bet they couldn't even get through butter! Cheap price for cheap quality. Total false economy.

Dorma don't make drills you fools - they make bed linen !!

Oh ! you mean Dormer !

I found these perfectly fine for 16ga and 18ga sheet. Bargain.

Just want to say (in an attempt to add a little balance) that remember most people will probably use a drill bit of any size for a couple of minutes ever decade. Most people do not do a lot of drilling. Therefore these are fine to use once or twice and then ruin because the chances are they don't know a great deal anyway and will try and use a wood bit on a piece of metal. It still isn't a false economy then because if you ruin one bit you generally have a close enough size to get the job done with another bit to a DIYer standard.

If you're in the building trade and thinking of buying this set then dude, pick another trade.

Hot.

Total rubbish,broke three just going through a thin bit of ally.reverted back to hss and all went well. (these seem to be very brittle)
