Mastercraft 230-piece Titanium-Coated Drill Bit Set
On Sale--it's a steal of a deal
I break my smaller bits all the time--chalk it up to Operator Error--but filling those small bit holes in my sets with more expensive replacements breaks my heart. This set, when on sale (usually $80-$100 off) fits the bill. While they may dull a bit quicker than name brand bits, there is such ridiculous abundance, I simply move on.
If I was into sharpening my bits to prolong their life, I would perhaps invest in a higher grade; but since I'm Sammy Suburb, these do nicely.

Judging by some of the other comments I have to wonder if I got a bum set. The bits break very easily and dull quite quickly. Good thing there's a lot of bits.

230 pieces of titanium drill bits
Totally hard use professional titanium bits for metal & wood. Includes 230 pieces of bits on a hard plastic case so you can take them anywhere. Unbreakable under hard use. Multiple bits of the same diameter so you do not run out of specific bits in case you lose a few. Excellent collection! Recommended for professionals!

plastic case, missing 7/64" bits.
The case is platic, not metal as advertised and depicted.
Also, the set is missing 7/64" bits. So if you are using this to complete other sets that are missing the smaller bits (as I did) you will still have empty spots for the 7/64s.
Good value (on sale) but should have included this bit that is in all there other sets.

Pretty darn good.
This set is the biggest set C-tire has. Got it on sale for $100 bux off. Cant beat that. The quality is pretty good. Ive had better bits but these are good enough for general stuff around the shop or house.
Rad price for how many you get.,

I break a lot of the smaller sized bits and was looking for a set to go on sale that I could use to fill in the gaps on my main set. The titanium coating is of good quality and you get 25 of each of the smaller sizes working progressively up to a single 1/2" bit.The metal case is sheet metal and a bit flimsy but this set has been thought out very well. Its going to be a few years before needing any bits after buying this set. Great Buy.

These are good all around drill bits. I use them on a variety of materials (wood/plastic/steel) and the dual at an acceptable pace. I more or less just like having the quantity, as I've been known to snap the little guys on a regular basis. The set might be overkill of the weekend warrior but I'm slowly working my way though it. Nice case.

Very good price for this many bits.
I found the case deformed but this was easily fixed by cutting off the corners of the plastic interior.
Using each drill bit, I drilled a hole next to the size for easily finding where to put it back.

Could of Been Better
The kit contains a good selection on bits. The case is well made and sturdy. The only down fall that I found was that the1/4 inch bits and larger don't seem to drill well they loose the sharpnest very quickly. Although for the price this is a decent buy.

Great selection of sizes, very durable
This set comes on sale so often that I suspected that the Titanium coating was about as thick as a coat of paint. Turns out the titanium layer is about as thick on these bits as on more expensive premium brands. How I made this discovery reveals the downside of these bits: the smaller size bits are every bit as prone to breaking as regular HSS bits.
The titanium coating does mean the blades last longer than regular HSS bits, but not by much. Because it's a coating, you'll loose the titanium if you resharpen the bits. You can still resharpen the bits, but it won't perform any better than a regular HSS bit.
