Pretty decent deal if you need bits for an impact driver, though obviously these can be used with either a drill or impact.

Have two sets and they've lasted a year of moderate use. Had two bits break but because of user error.
Good bits

Fun fact. Just because you read it in Slickdeals doesn't mean it's true.

59Co is the only stable cobalt isotope and the only isotope that exists naturally on Earth.

Radioactive isotopes of Cobalt are man-made.

There are radioactive isotopes of many elements. The cobalt for these drills may not have some to even detect.

Another fun fact. Uranium is common in many households water if water source is from wells. But it is mainly U-238.

HomeDepot gave me the 23 piece set since I online ordered from the store and they could not locate this set.

True, I should have been more clear, I have this titanium set and a set of cobalt Rigid bits. I was a mechanic for a long time and the cobalt bits are amazing for professional use. The titanium work great for home use, just use oil and slow speed.

These are made for quick change out for cordless impact drivers, drills, and cordless screwdrivers. I use them without oil at the highest speed setting for wood, aluminum, sheetmetal, plastic, steel electrical boxes, etc. Low speed setting for more control.

Many times I will use a center punch or awl to mark metal or wood. I start with a smaller drill to make a pilot hole then continue up in size to the desired hole size. I may use 2 or more smaller size drills stepping up in size or I might just use the drill I need. Depends on the situation.

For cutting and drilling sheetrock, I use to use a trimmer with sheetrock drill/cutter, or utility knife or jabsaw. Now use those oscillating tools. If I am drilling through sheetrook into a stud, I use a wood or metal drill bit. If drilling though stucco into wood then masonry bit through stucco then wood or metal drill bit into wood.
