The bits have been durable so far though I haven't worked with much wood since purchasing them. Noticed the approach to using it is everything and the best quality hole was one where I've clamped something down to another piece of wood for a cleaner exit.

I used it in a press and due to the materials I use it's not my go-to bit type, but they're nice to have around. Right Tools For The Right Job and whatnot. I did not observe any wobble when running these in the press nor any wear on the tips after use.

Only complaint I could have really, which someone pointed out is you'll need your own case and I remember these not being the smoothest to take out of their packaging

I needed a 7/16" extra long drill bit to drill a couple of holes in our new chunky wood fireplace mantel and this set of seven drill bits was only a couple bucks more than buying a single 7/16" extra long drill bit.

So to start off, the packaging was just some cheap plastic and sealed around the edges but no big deal, it arrived in good shape. The drill bits themselves are of good quality steel and had a good weight to them.

I have only used the 7/16" bit so far but it was straight and true and the brad point stayed with no problem at all. For the price and quality, I would not hesitate to buy this set if you are looking for some extra long drill bits.

Woodworkers love to use brad point drill bits on most all of there projects.
If you have drilled a piece of wood and came up short or had to somehow line it up from the other side and attempt to correctly drill, then this drill bit set is for you. Each bit in the set is approximately 12" long and they are made from high speed steel. Typically brad point drill bits are perfect for drilling wood, plastic and some composite materials. Brad points have a sharp point on the tip, which prevents the bit from "walking" like standard twist bits tend to do.
The extra long brad point drill bit set comes with the following diameter drill bits: 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 7/16" and 1/2".
Each bit is engraved with the size for easy identification.
Brad point drill bits don't move from the original contact point which tends to produce much more accurate and cleaner results.

The bits arrived very clean and sharp. I haven't tried them yet, but I'm sure they'll cut the stuff I need them for very nicely (e.G., ABS plastic and softwoods). The case they come in is polystyrene, I think, so more brittle/fragile than, e.G., PVC or ABS.

That would have been OK if Amazon hadn't shipped the case loose/unprotected in one of their plastic bubble envelopes. The bits, particularly the largest ones, are pretty heavy, so I'm sure they move around a lot inside the case during shipping.

The edges of the slots that hold them in the case were all damaged. One of the bracket tabs that attach the clear cover to the blue body of the case was broken, and the plastic hinge pin on the other tab was broken as well.

I managed to repair the broken tab with Krazy Glue, but couldn't re-attach the broken pin on the other side, so one side of the cover will always be loose, and I'll have to handle the case carefully every time I need to take out/use the bits.

Prior to ordering this bit set, I read several of the "less than favorable" reviews so I had some idea what to look for, and/or to expect.. I already own quite a few bits of assorted types, but no brad point bits.

That said, I have since received the Steelex D1034 Deluxe Brad Point set and decided to run a very unscientific test. Before I get to that, let me say that they arrived quickly (thank you Amazon Prime), in an acceptable metal case for safe storage, and are crazy sharp.

My drill press is a 10" 12-speed Bench model, manufactured by Central Machinery and sold by Harbor Freight. Initially, I wasn't impressed with the run out, so I replaced the factory chuck with a Woodstock D2931 1/32 to 1/2-Inch B16 Taper Drill Chuck (also purchased from Amazon, and for about $17).

I have many Fisch Brad point drill bits and they are wonderful. What arrived was NOT a Fisch bit Fit and finish was not Fisch quality It looked used, was not straight and had scars on the shaft. I was very disappointed.

I ordered a 9/16 bit at the same time and it was an authentic Fisch bit and works as expected with the high quality Fisch fit and finish so I'm returning the imposter and trying to see if they send me the original this time.

I will update this when I find out what arrivesOK I received the replacement bit in two days. It is still not an authentic Fisch bit however, the replacement runs true and straight and it is a in new condition.

The cut is clean and acceptable and for this price I should expect this quality so for that reason I am updating my rating to 4 stars Thank you amazon for your quick replacement so I could continue my project.

Received these this morning, opened the package and upon inspection I found the following. The point, cutter end, had burrs on the outer edges. There is considerable run-out of the shank of each bit. Checking the resulting hole diameter of a 3/16th size bit, against a higher quality bit, both the Comoware bit and the higher priced bit measured 0.

1860 inches shank diameter. However, the resulting hole diameter of the Comoware bit measured 0. 1900 inches diameter where the higher priced bit measured 0.1860. The difference is, my opinion only, the run-out (wobble) of the bit shank. These bits are inexpensive and thus result in average work.

Update, 6April2020, I am wrong, these are turning out to do a decent job. My complaint above was due to the run-out of my expensive Rockwell drill press that was purchased in 1978. I made a huge mistake buying American product in lieu of a quality Chinese drill press at a much better price.

I bought the 13-piece carbon steel set of bits. There are some obvious machining inconsistencies on a few of the bits, but none that would prevent them from working reasonably well. None are super-sharp but they work well. I recently used the 7/8" bit to drill a door frame for a dead bolt.

Worked fine, and ate into the wood faster than I had expected.

I have a light manufacturing business that involves drilling lots of holes in poplar. I've always found these to run true and give me consistently what the diamater says it will on the shaft. I use a digital caliper on every bit before a production run.

Thats because another brand which maddeningly I can't remember where I bought was .232 instead of .250. In these hole goes a 1/4 Dowel and I discovered the error after producing 96 units with the smaller holes. That lesson causes me to measure each bit I use and check the fit before production.

Long and short, I trust Fisch.

Allows very clean and precise holes to be drilled in softwoods (tested on SPF), and the 23/64" diameter creates a perfectly snug fit for 3/8" hardwood dowels. Produces very little to no tearout on the holes. The product is well machined. It arrived with a sharp edge, without visible burrs, bends, or nicks.

The point is sharp, and well centered. It protrudes enough ahead of the spurs so that you can precisely center the drill holes without skidding. I've tested a few times in a piece of pre-planed SPF, and tested the fit for a dowel.

The photos show the front and back of my piece, and one of the holes filled with a 3/8" dowel (that has been glued and pared flush to the surface with a chisel). No visible space between dowel and hole. The underside (second photo) of my test holes shows a minimal amount of tearout on the periphery, despite the workpiece being supported with a sacrificial piece clamped to its back.

I'm not a woodworker, but I'm replacing the flat surface of my deck myself. I saw a You Tube video that showed using this on the corner points of a deck board notch (going around the support columns) gives a nice, rounded edge.

I thought it would be neater, and easier, to do this and so figured what did I have to loose and got the bit. It works well (it's a bit intimidating to look at, at first). I'm not a power user, but it does what it says, and it looks darn near indestructible to me (didn't break and I have it for next spring when I finish the other 1/4 of the remaining long deck boards).

Happy with the purchase.

Pas de doute, ces mches bois forent trs, trs bien. J'en avais dj dans un autre assortiment et je souhaitais complter. Alors, pourquoi pas cinq toiles ?

Je prsume qu'ils sont parfaitement maintenus dans les embouts Festool.

Deuxime dtail agaant : le petit conteneur plastique est indigent.

Il n'est pas la dimension pour sortir aisment la mche de 8mm. Elle reste coince dans sa logette et il faut une pince becs longs pour l'extraire. Truc : la placer dans une logette au centre, c'est plus facile (mais pas rationnel pour prendre rapidement la bonne).
