I really tried to like these drill bits ....
Bought these bits because of the Milwaukee name, but have truly been disappointed. First off it is so hard to pull the bits from the case. I've cut myself pulling bits from the case before. At first I thought these bits were pretty good, but I was drilling into soft materials. When trying to drill into harder materials, its like pushing the bit through instead of actually drilling. I would not buy these again ... period.

    When drilling on the first metal strip to make a hole was easy but on second and third holes were not easy. It is for the sunscreen shade to hold.

      I bought these to ream some 3/16" steel tubing after using a tubing cutter on it. I couldn't find a reamer that small, but I think that these drill bits are probably sharper and really get the job done. I have turned the bits by hand, and used a driver to turn them. These look like real high quality drills. I have replaced all of the steel brake tubing on my 1959 Ford Fairlane, and having a tool like this makes the job easier.

      Great bits
      These Milwaukee impact bits are my second favorite bits after the Milwaukee cobalt bits. I keep at least two full sets of each at all times. They’ll chew through 1/2” steel all day long. The cobalts cut faster, but I like the quick connect feature for the impact on these.

      USED TO DRILL OUT BROKEN EXHAUST MANIFOLD BOLT. BIT STAYED SHARP FOR AS LONG I ANTICIPATED, WHEN BEING USED FOR THIS APPLICATION. SEEMED IF YOU START WITH A SMALLER SIZE THAN 1/8" AND WORK YOUR WAY UP IN SMALL INCREMENTS WILL MAHE THIS JOB ALOT QUICKER AND LESS FRUSTRATING.

        Great Drill Bit Set !
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got the Milwaukee Tool - Kit 15 PC TiN SHOCKWAVE™ to replace my old, broken set. I like to fix stuff around the house, build small things and this Drill Bit Set is perfect for my every day use. I can use it in wood, metal and PVC . I can use it in small jobs and big ones. the variety of sizes makes it versaible. they are easy to connect and the bits are sharp to make a hole fast. Like the carryng case. I recommend this set !

          Great drill bits
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Milwaukee 15 piece Titanium drill bit set is a great set. The bits go through wood like its butter. I will get great use from these bits, it even come in a nice little case. I would highly recommend them to my friends.
