            Do not recommend
            Had to drill a hole through a metal cabinet to run new conduit on short notice, used these step drill bits and ruined the entire set just trying to make one small 3/4 hole. Bits got hot and dulled very quickly and I had to keep switching bits just to finish the hole I needed to get the job done. Had to throw away the set when done, since they were now dull and unusable.

              broken bit during first use
              First time using a bit from this set, the tip broke off. Not off to a good start. Was pretty thin sheet metal -- not sure why it broke. I would expect more from a kit this expensive.

                very impressed with the speed, control and cut quality
                I needed to make 5/8” hole on 2” square tubing with 1/8” wall. Instead of buying an individual bit dir $20, i thiught thr stepping bit would add a variety of options for certain tasks. I was initially apprehensive about this bits ability to cut well using a hand drill. Thiugh i have only made 10 holes so far, i am extremely impressed with the speed, quality, and control of the cut. Highly recommend for 1/8” material and thinner.

                  Impressive performance with older cordless drill. Regardless of step drill size aggressive cutting in plastics and sheet metal was accomplished quickly with 14 volt drill. Used as designed drills were excellent. Were able to make acceptable holes in wood for unexpected needs. Quickly became part of tools brought to most DIY tasks. Often performing well in odd ways better than regular drills making them very useful. The #4 step drill seemed to be the most used. Overall the six bit set in its compact case proved to be great to have for the intended use as well a variety of hole enlarging and shaping tasks that come up on many tasks. Only negative issue experienced after weeks of use is pinching fingers on back of case when closing. Case has mount for accessories. A well designed feature for professionals this Milwaukee set was designed for. Great product that does all it claims to do with ease. Not one drill showed any sign of wear despite the use and abuse given. Highly recommend.

                  If you don't yet have a set of step bits, this is a really solid kit. I've always found step drills to be the ideal way to create holes (or expand holes) in sheet metal. I got to the point where having one or two in my tool set wasn't quite enough so this fits the bill perfectly. They're sharp, give a ton of flexibility in terms of hole size. Also personally I feel like Milwaukee always nails it with the carry case. I know it's simple, but it makes all the difference in the world to keep things organized. Just be aware these holes are not going to be precision, the nature of the bit and your steady hand will likely make less that perfect hole. Just fine if you're making way for conduit fittings or enlarging punch outs, but not for fine woodworking. If you're looking to add more to your collection or this is your first set, you can't go wrong here.

                  I have been using the Milwaukee step bits for a while now. They are well made and sturdy step drill bits. I have been using the 1/2 and 3/4 size to build brackets that have been welded together, during welding some of the steel becomes a bit hard and with a little cutting fluid these bits go right through the 1/8th inch materiel like butter. I must have over 200 holes each with the same bit with no issues at all. Still very sharp and doing its job. No complaints from me at all. Love the storage case too!

                  Excellent set of bits! These do exactly what they are advertised to do and they do it very well. The point on the end keeps your bit where you want it without the need to pre-drill a pilot hole or even center punch where you want it. The bit cuts very fast with the double blade and have seemed to hold up well over my testing. The markings on the bits are easy to read and visible when drilling due to the silver marks on the bits, if you know the mark you have to go to ahead of time you will know when to stop drilling! The case is rugged and easy to use. Overall its a great set of bits that will cover all your step bit needs!

                  the best step bits i have used. highly visible markings make it easy to see and use without checking, time saver in my opinion. my use is mainly in plastics and aluminum for installation of switches and lamps. and they so far have shown very little wear. the bits and the case is just what you expect from a Milwaukee tool/accessory. no doubt i will purchase more in the future and be recommending them as well.

                  At the time I received this set of step drill bits, I did not have a specific project in mind, just knew that it was something I have needed from time to time. The next day I had to install a dusk-to-dawn light. Working from scaffolding and ladders and drilling various size holes in both steel and wood, two of these bits were put to work. I was almost amazed at the performance. The package states 2X faster. This is an understatement. It also states they will last 4X longer. If they do hold up much longer than ordinary, then the price will certainly be worth it.
