Got this at a steel, and it's a dab hand for drilling through steel too!!
on 16 April 2012
I recently replaced my Drill which had ended up being left behind in a move - which had it's own set of bits with it,
but the new one only had two screwdriver heads, so needed some bits.
I had actually gone to ASDA literally three hours before and picked up a 30 piece set, which after finding this, went back unopened. Especially, as I got this as one of the discount deals, so saved 20 quid on what I paid at Asda.
I will admit, that I probably won't use half of the bits in the set, however, you can never know for sure, and whilst this set contains more bits than the other sets at this price, there's been no compromise in the quality of the construction.
As you may have guessed, I'm not a professional DIY person, although I am happy to do complex projects, and this set has been ideal - plenty of bits for different materials, including bits for wood specifically, which is a bit rarer nowadays, right through to diamond masonry bits, keys, and all sorts, in addition to several screwdriver bits, and extender to ensure the drill has enough to grip with.
The thing I like most though is how clearly and well ordered things are - placed in rubber blocks of increasing size, it's easy to lay your hands on what you need, and if you need to go up/down a size, you don't need to rifle through the case because you've actually put the rubber grouping within easy reach.
I've yet to find a real downside- and if I were being REALLY picky, then it would be the case - it's sleek, durable, and hard, but mine doesn't shut as easily as I'd like, however, I actually bought two sets - one for me one for a friend, and I know my friend has had no problem with his.
So to summarize:
- Fantastic value for money (even at full price - which I'd have paid, if it hadn't been on sale)
- Wide variety of bits in terms of both variety of intended materials, and sizes
- Case is slim, sleek, and very durable.
- Lots of different driver bits
- Things are laid out very logically with ease in mind.
