  • Decent deal if you need to order something else from amazon UK otherwise might as well just pay $47 to get it from Amazon AU.

    The 91-piece set is $44 dollars which is a bit cheaper than usual as well.

    I got one during the last deal on this range and while the bits are decent quality that will last for a number of home DIY projects, the case and specifically the way the bits are held inside soft rubber retainers that are clamped into place with the force of a thousand suns and are incredibly difficult to pry out is a big let-down.

    • the force of a thousand suns

      made me chuckle.

      That bad, huh? They obviously didn't test it with regular Terrans in mind.

      This fella might be able to do it.

    • Ditto! I bought one of the Bosch sets thinking the case would be handy to keep using. I thought the holder blocks would be easily rotatable holders. Bit nope on ease of rotating or ease of removing the bits.

      Back to the original plan of reusing the cheap Aldi clip-box cases.

    • would have been great to have the spade bits in the larger kit.

    • Free delivery vs $20.29 makes that much better value.

    What's the difference between V and X Lines?

    • X = hex-fit pieces.

      • does it mean it will work with impact driver as well?

        • +2

          Exactly. Will fit in an impact driver directly, as opposed to needing a chuck adapter or resorting to a drill driver. I have translated to using hex bits now for torque transfer efficiency.

    Dont buy anything from Amazon UK they are a joke and you will be waiting months with no tracking.

    • Not necessarily. My last order with Amazon UK was placed 7 Sep, delivered 22 Sep, and saved me about 30% from the cheapest offer in AU. Tracking may not be the most accurate, but in case the parcel is lost, you would get a refund from Amazon. This happened to me once - ordered from Amazon US, estimated delivery date passed, tracking did not update for weeks, contacted customer service, they looked at tracking info and issued the refund instantly without any hassle. So at least you're not risking with your money.

      I find if they use Aussie Post, then things get delayed a bit. DHL and pretty much anyone else (even Couriers Please) is faster than AP.

    • Green bosch. Sad to have to burst the bubble.

        is that really broden?

    I have one, used drill bit for masonry and it was terrible. Took me minutes to drill through brick. Went to mitre 10 bought 1 drill bit for $3 and it was night and day, the $3 drill bit went through the brick in seconds. Tried the drill bits as well and they are ok but nothing special. Save your money imo.

    • Thanks. Do you have recommendations for better drill/driver sets?

      I've broken many of the drill/driver bits from my cheap set and looking to get one that's better - not necessarily premium - quality.

      • +1

        Don't get a set, just get the size you need.

        • Thanks, I might take your advice. I assume some brands are better than others — any to look for or avoid?

          • @Member 0230: More important is use correct type of drill bits, speed, and do not over heat.

          • @Member 0230: I like sutton drill bits, use them daily for work. Make a good selection of hole saws etc too.

            They have a subsidiary brand of Frost as well, used them previously and they're almost as good but a bit cheaper.

            Also remember to step up in drill bits, don't go straight for a large diameter just because that's the size you need.

      • From what I've noticed. Any of the single ones at your Bunnings will be heaps better than these cheap sets. My drill bits are mainly Irwin and craftright.

    • +1

      I bought the 90 one and drilled through plasterboard with the Wood drill bit. Already blunt…

    • Generally, drilling brick with a standard drill sucks. SDS is where it's at, but you need a dedicated drill.

  • +5

    Absolute junk. Don’t waste your money.

  • I have this set and while I haven't given it a hard life I've had them for many years and they work fine. They're not that bad.

  • $20.29 postage kills it for me.
