Good deal on this flatbit set from amazon, i have purchased them and i can say their are alot sharper and better cutting results than most flat bits out their and i will definitely buy them again.

Other shops like ITS, screwfix, toolstation are selling the same set for almost £30.

£15.95 With free delivery when spending at least £20 still a good deal.

I didn't know DeWalt did dart sets.
These are terrible quality. Literally lose their edge after 4 or 5 holes. The tough cases are great though, especially if you have tstak.

I believe not. My electrician bought a set thinking they would and they didn't.

Completely agree, my 25mm one is bent and unusable as it would make a hole at least 30mm if not bigger but by time i had realised and needed to use it the warranty had

i have had so many dewalt bits snap on me, i would not touch their bits in a million years now. So far ive been using some BOSCH ones which, touch wood, haven't failed on my yet.
I brought alot of these last year, there still sharp after alot of use.

Yeah, I don't understand how the reviews are so good. Look any any dewalt forums or fb group, even the biggest dewalt fans will tell you that these are absolute garbage! When it comes to consumables Bosch are much better.

I've got the Bosch ones with the screw tip and they're brutal.

As the negative reviews say, they pull themselves into the material *hard*, potentially faster than it can cut, and unless the material is very solid you'll hack up what you're drilling through or the drill will stop on a dime and yank itself out of your hand. For decently thick immovable objects they're great but for anything more delicate they're worse than useless.

I love Bosch, but would't recommend these either.

I’m a DeWalt fan gave lot of their 54v power tools for example and they are great. However same for me got the Bosch screw tip cutters and a set of these and the Bosch ones are worlds apart these are ok for plasterboard but if you want cut through joists the Bosch ones go through them like butter no matter how thick and with much less force needed to push the drill as they ‘pull’ the cutter through as you say

Plus for those asking they do not fit into the TSTAK caddy unfortunately as I’ve got one and was also frustrated they wouldn’t fit

Hope that helps

I am a sparky and only use these ones. Yes they lose their sharpness after a while but the good thing is that it is really easy to sharpen them with an angle grinder, you cannot do that with any other flatbit. They last ages if you know how to use them

100% with you on this one, i hardly use the screw tip ones because of that same reason and also i feel it is harder on drills alot more than the conventional ones and just decreasing overall life of your cordless drill.

Tried to drill a hole in a wooden slat for a pipe, it yanked the wood so hard the slat snapped in half and my wrist almost went with it.

So I really need two sets, in which case best not get the Bosch ones in the first place. Shame, most of my stuff is Bosch, I love it.

It's funny how opinions and real life experiences can be so different. I have drilled about 300 holes in 5in thick joists with my 32mm bit over the past month with no issues and no apparent need to sharpen yet. Most of these were driven with the DCF887 driver for easy access at full tilt, no bending or breakage. Very tough set in my eyes. These are not really a precision set especailly with the side cutting which can catch in more delicate material, but I found them great for general building applications! I would buy another set if I lost mine tomorrow, so heat added at this price!
