You need a carbide-tipped masonry bit.

Why is there such a drastic price difference between the 23 and 29 piece set? Am i missing something?

Asked by Bob February 22, 2021

The 29 piece set includes up to 1/2” bits. The larger bits are much more expensive.

Well Bob, I can’t help you there. I have used the bits in my 1/4” impact makita and they seem to work well

What is the warranty on these bits?

Asked by Bob January 22, 2021
2
Answers

Interesting question! I suggest contacting Milwaukee customer service, or Home Depot customer service for their return/warranty policy. I'm sure either would replace or refund for a factory defect (e.g., a bit broke within minutes of reasonable use), but these ARE drill bits and are expected to wear over time, even with reasonable use.

How would this compare to the ryobi titanium coated drill bit set?

Does not hold up to stainless steel
I have always believed that Milwaukee tools were high quality. I have both their 12V Cordless Impact Driver and Drill. Also have a couple of their lights. I purchased their Shockwave drill bits and impact driver sets to use with the impact driver and drill. I had my first opportunity to use these drill bits yesterday; had to drill holes on our stainless steel baking rings. The drill bits could not even make it through 3 holes. I dug out my old Black & Decker drill bits to finish the job. Now I'm stuck with expensive and useless bits. Not recommended.

not Great
Milwaukee usually has a good reputation but these bits are just terrible. I bought these in late December and I broke 5 bits already, 7/32, 9/64, 3/16, 1/4, and 3/8 in January first time using them. Setting is on a 1 on my impact driver and I was a wood block to stabilize. I was drilling soft aluminum and the tips just snap.

Drill bit packaging?
I haven't drilled any holes yet - just got this for Christmas! The first thing that stood out to me was that the box is at least twice as big as it needs to be! I also noticed that it has no holes drilled into it so you can see what size bit that you need - my 40 year old one has this feature. I am, however, looking forward to drilling holes without having the bit slip in the chuck on my drill.

Very hard to pull drill bits from their holders. I had to pry the bits out with a screwdriver.

The thinner ones suck
Thick ones work fine for me. But two thinner ones broke during the first use. Claiming warranty is also a hassle, driving 40 minutes for two drill bits is definitely too much for me.

Disappointing drill bit failures
I am a long time user of Milwaukee power and hand tools but was upset at the poor performance of these drill bits. I was drilling pilot holes for hex head screws in 18-gauge metal roofing panels. The bits cut cleanly but less than ten holes with the 7/64 drill bit it snapped at the shank where the twist section of the drill starts. I thought their may have been a flaw in that particular bit, but the same thing happened with the second 7/64 bit in the kit. I then switched to the 3/32 bit and less than twenty holes later that bit snapped at the same location on the bit. I found an old set of Craftsman drill bit in my truck and used them to finish the job. I would not recommend these bits as they snap at the shank where the twist starts. I had to move the wooden purlin twice because the bit broke off and a second hole in the metal roof panel can cause leaking. I regret not reading the reviews on Red Helix drill bits.

Short and Cheap
I have no idea why these are rated so highly. These are impossible to remove from their respective holders in the red plastic case. You need to use a needle nose plier and pray you don't cut yourself trying to remove each bit. The bits, especially the thinner ones, are way too short. You can't even get thru a 2x4. Over a year, half of these bits have broken on me. Cheaply made, terrible case.

The Milwaukee Shockwave impact drill bit set has the same quality that people have come to expect from Milwaukee, but overall there were several things that I personally think could be improved. Let’s start with a PRO. There is no doubt that these drill bits are built to last. Just getting them out of the packaging, I could immediately feel a difference in the weight. These bits weigh slightly more than one of their competitors bits. However, the weight gave me the impression that these were going to be durable and last a long time. Now for the CONs. When I unpackaged these bits, I compared them to a very popular competitor’s bits of the same size. You will see in the picture that the Milwaukee bit is so much shorter than the other bit. Another CON is that these bits do not come with any type of pouch or case to store them when they are not in use. When I drilled a couple of holes to compare the bits, nothing blew me away about the Milwaukee bit. Again, I cannot deny the incredible quality of the Milwaukee bits. What would make me not recommend these bits over the competitor’s bits is mainly the length. In addition to the length, not having any type of storage pouch or case is enough for me to pass on this Milwaukee product.

This new Milwaukee red helix 7 pieces titanium drill bit set is great for impact and drills. The tip is a quad edge that stays sharper longer. I have used this bit set on metal, wood, and pvc. It performed excellent and all of these materials mentioned before. The drillbit set comes with 2 (1/16"), 1 (1/8"), 1 (3/16"), 1 (1/4"), 1 (//16") and 1 (3/8"). Highly recommend this drill bit set.

When I saw these split point drill bits with hex shafts from a respected tool company I thought they would be worth giving a try. I am glad I did. The first thing I tested was if they ran true. They do; something cheaper bits many times do not. I tested them by drilling holes in 1/2" mild steel round stock using oil as lubricant. I used as close to optimum rpm as my drill press allowed and all worked well even without starting dimples including 1 /16" which has a standard point which started fine even off center on the steel rod. In short, I'm very happy with how these bits perform.
