These are the best bits I have owned particularly for metal. They cut extremely well and stay sharp. In a cordless drill, even the 1/2 inch bit drills through steel like butter. In wood they will literally pull the cordless drill through causing some tear-out on the back side unless a backer board is used or you hold back on the drill as it breaks through. They are exceptional when used in a drill press for both wood and metal.

These bits were fine for utility work but when used for any finish work.. (i.e. mounting hardware or trying to drill w/o going all the way through) they are too hungry for the wood. The larger bits don't actually drill through the wood so much as drill into it like a screw. Even when being extra careful to apply light pressure the drill was twisted out of my hand as the bit tore through my workpiece. while drilling through some Maple Plywood drawer fronts the bit pulled the workpiece up off the table and out of my hand leaving a large chipped out area of veneer on the face of my piece. I also wasn't impressed with the pilot point, the bit still walked. Nothing beats an awl or center punch for accurate drilling

I bought this set at Lowe's and so far I am very pleased with their quality. I paid about the same price but I also got a free DeWalt baseball cap in the deal! The bits have stayed sharp through many projects and this new design for the case is a vast improvement - the hinge is much stronger and I feel it will hold up well. Because this assortment includes all of the sizes you would use most often, I keep mine right in the case with my DeWalt cordless drill so I am never without them!

Buy these and you won't regret it - especially if you often work away from your workshop!

You have no control on the feed rate of these drill bits. If you want to drill a pilot hole half way through a wood table top, the bit gets sucked into the wood and the bit will come through the top of your table. I've used drill bits of every type for the last 40 years, I have never seen anything so bad. I have a brand new set, but they are worthless. I only use my old set. If you have a table drill you may be able to get some control with the feed rate of these bits, but for hand tools you will constantly be struggling. I know this point has already been made, but somehow many others have prematurely given these bits a higher rating. These people probably have only used the smallest sizes with harder wood. My old set worked with all types of wood and metals with no problems. Do yourself a favor and keep looking.

These drill bits are very well made in a nice case. The case design allows you to easily insert the bits (insert at an angle near the base of the holder, and then push the tip down into the slot).

The larger bits all have anti slip notching, which is a nice feature.

The bits work great on metal (aluminum, steel, stainless are all no problem). Wood is also fine. However on thin plastic or thin wood, especially plastic the bit has too much bite, and can sometimes leave a messy hole.

On metal this is fine. With careful control of pressure and drilling speed there is no problem with any material. By using a slow/medium drilling speed and very light pressure plastic holes come out beautiful.

Also the case and bits have been through quite a bit of abuse already, and no loss of finishing. A good touch is the lettering is placed well below the shank, reducing wear.

I am a big fan of this set and of DeWalt's pilot point drill bits. However, once the pilot point dulls it is difficult to sharpen, and individual replacement pilot point bits are hard/impossible to find. So it's either go back to regular bits for replacement, or buy an entirely new kit.

I've owned this set for a year with very infrequent use and half of the bits are useless now. It was sharp at first but dulls pretty quickly although it lasted much longer than the Black and Decker bits. I dropped the largest bit 3/8 from waiste height and it broke in half. Anyway, I'm now shopping for another set of drill bits and Dewalt drill bits are not going to be on my shopping list.

What can I say, it's DeWalt. Parts seem to be top notch and durable. Bits run 1/2, 3/8, 5/16, 1/4, 7/32, 13/64, 3/16, 11/64, 5/32, 9/64, 1/8, 7/64, 3/32, 5/64, and two 1/16 in case your clumsy like me and break one :) All in all an excellent intermediate users bit kit for a reasonable price. The case works well and looks durable. The slide lock is definitely preferable to the fold and lock versions employed by other vendors. This is my second case of tools by DeWalt, my first is approximately three (3) years old and the slide lock stills works well and the hinges still function normally.
