Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by George Using Brad Point Drill Bit to bore clean thru holes in soft wood...
I needed a new 1/4" brad point drill bit to bore thru holes in 3/4" pine boards. I purchased the set of bits instead of only the one 1/4" because of the price; ~$5 for one bits vs ~$14 for the complete set....
I used the 1/4" bit to bore ~1400 holes in 10 floor-to-ceiling upright shelf supports for a set of built in bookcases 23 feet long. Using a bench top drillpress with a backer board to minimize tear-out on the backside. I found that it was best to raise the bit out of the hole to clean out cut chips before cutting through to minimize back tear out.
This bit did the job nicely in short order. After 1400 holes it was just as sharp as when I started.

These bits will work if precision is not a requirement. If you are using a dowel jig for drilling holes you will be able to get fair results. If drilling free hand expect problems. The brad points were machined out of center on all bits in this set making for poor results for accurate holes.

These bits work great in my drill press. Used for inserting dowels in a frame.

We love Home Depot and have NEVER before had one complaint. However, don't be drawn in by the dewalt brand drill bits. Me and my wife bought a brand new set and used them less than 30 minutes simply drilling through pine 2 x 4's roughing in the wiring in our add on. We were absolutely amazed at how fast the new bits were dull ON WOOD. Reminds me of the 1980's bits from China.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by toolnut These brad point bits have performed as expected, no disappointments.
These are my first brad point drill bits and my first use of said bits. I have been using the bits on both flat wood and wood dowel rod. I have had no walking of the bits on both the flat and dowel rod. I do push the tip down into the wood slightly before turning on my drill press. (Note, my use has been in a floor model drill press only). The drilled holes look good without rough edges and rough hole bottoms. I have been very pleased with the overall quality versus the price paid for this set. I rated the product at a 4 because I do not have experience with any other brad point bits. I would recommend these bits.

The Brad-Points bit set fits nicely in my small 3/8" chuck for the size of bit that come with the set I would 've had to buy a 1/2" chuck for them to fit in
