Not a great price, basically useless bits. You're talking like 2 holes drilled in well-cured concrete before you give up, even using a drill with the hammer option. I speak from experience.

Get a cheap SDS drill from HF (Bauer now?) and then good Bosch or Dewalt SDS bits.

The bits can also be used on impact driver. I use them as a cheaper option for occasional/light job.

I'm far from an expert, but I think he means that these are not as good because they are the hex shank style and they are not made as well as the SDS style bits (someone correct me if I'm wrong).
Can you use hex shank bits in the Bosch SDS rotary drill, since it has (what appears to be) a special chuck for SDS bits?

The drill bits are good quality. The issue is using a hammer drill vs. Using a rotary hammer drill. Look on YouTube for videos comparing the two and you will see that the rotary hammer drill goes through concrete several times faster then a traditional hammer drill.

For cement, you DO NOT need an SDS drill for the small 1/8" to 3/8" holes that this masonry bit set will drill.

A regular old drill with a hammer setting will do just fine for these smaller sizes. But sure, if you are doing dozens of larger and deeper holes, an SDS will make quicker work of it - you can still use a regular hammer drill, it'll just take longer. I wouldn't personally lug out my big SDS (and it's special expensive bits) unless I was doing several deeper holes of 1/2" or larger.

Great translation, btw.
