No, these are HSS bits, you will need masonry bits and a hammer action drill (the SDS type are best).

I bought 3 of these about a month ago when they were last on here for £6.99 but for 25 bits. Terrible quality I snapped a 3.5 in about 10 seconds on site. Got back to work n asked the 2 other guys how they had got on with there's n they had snapped a couple too ! We use drills n bits everyday so not novices. Wish I took them straight back as we noticed chips out of the larger bits. If u buy these my advice would be throw the bits away n keep the box and fill them with some proper drill bits.

Now that was a useful comment: first hand knowledge is always best.

It is beyond my understanding that subscribers to these pages have voted this item hot with no knowledge of it. It is not a hot deal in that this is the regular price set of drill bits, and as you have told us the quality is very poor. Sometimes it is hard to follow HUKD.

ordered thanks need somthing to put in my halfuds tool box from last week

These will not be top quality at this price, but they probably will be …These will not be top quality at this price, but they probably will be perfectly good items for domestic or very light commercial use, as are most tools from this vendor. This appears to be just the regular price for an item from the Screwfix catalogue, so why does the OP think it is a hot deal, and why have subscribers voted it to 217 degrees? I have no idea; sometimes HUKD is hard to understand.

But the regular price is pretty good so this is a deal.

Thanks OP for posting, I bought several of these when they were s higher price, not seen them this cheap and as another poster said it is worth it for the box.
At one time I was going to buy one of those expensive drill sets sold on a shopping channel where he drills through brake disks an anvil, concrete brick. etc all with the same drill.

But then I looked at the reviews and they were terrible. Instead I bought individual bits when they cone up up on offer st screwfix. Bosch sets are also pretty good.
However I also have poundsop sets. You know they are not going to last so 19 drill bits at £3.49, it does not matter if some break. These would make ideal add-on Xmas presents, they are not for serous every day users.
Having said all that I would be interested to know if anyone can recommend a set that really can go trough lintels, , anvils, brake disc, concrete, wood, etc and not fake like those ones appear to be on that shopping channel?

i would be interested to know where they break, is it the tip? HSS will chip if nocked about, if a tradesman buys these to use on site and then, complains they break all i can say is, He should have known better. These i would imagine would be ok for domestic use if looked after.

... not a good deal to buy something that is of such poor quality. I got a set of these a while back (because they were cheap) they are not good quality and I now only use them in a drill stand for non-precision work.

Yep, should have known better, wont trust reviews next time as they were glorious. The 3.5mm shattered drilling 3mm aluminium, as though it was very brittle. I used a 11.5 today after piloting with a new 3.5 then 7 and cant complain about them. So maybe there's a issue with the smaller bits.
I do like a bargain,but the reviews I read made them out to be as good as superior bits.
