$21.19 with tax shipped. Breaks down to $.17 per bit, not bad at all!

Today Sears is the Daily Double day when using ebates. That's another 6% back.

The same set sells at Rockler for $35. Since Rockler carries it, I figure they can't be too bad so I'm in for 1.
Thanks!

I'm in. Hope the quality is decent, and I like the way they have the smaller sizes in the bigger quantities, since they are the ones that break or get lost.

It's a very good deal and great value.

vote-for3vote-against

It's a Marketplace item, meaning it's not really sold by Sears ( "Sold and shipped by 1SaleADay" ). The good side is the Ebates cashback (thanks @heesme)

Titanium coated tips have poor reviews on other websites. Chrome-Vanadium tips are rated highly

I'm trying to think of an excuse to buy this other than "its a good deal"

any ideas?

I seem to use 1/8 bits the most often, as I typically use this size for drilling pilot holes prior to using deck screws on whatever project I am working on. So this size breaks the most often and I have to subsequently replace. I have yet to find a 1/8 bulk package of bits in this size to buy, so I think I typically pay between $2 and $4 for a two-pack. So the fact that there are 10 in this set is reason enough for me to order. In for 1.

i wish it was just 180 1/8" bits, i go through those like water

Looks nice - steel case with labeled slots sold me. Now I can pitch all of the crap plastic cases I have and consolidate into one nice big (STEEL) case.

@commodog: Found 25 bits for 33:

Or 31 cents apiece @ http://www.biscotoolsupply.com/wholesale-drill-bits-import-bulk-pricing-18

FWIW. I didn't look very hard, but your comment piqued my interest as I run out of them as well.
Usually I use the Harbor Freight TiN coated at 10 for $2.99

But they seem to only be good for 1 use (I guess its TiN coated crap!)...

this is a great deal much cheaper than even harbor frieght. the case is cool, don't have to fit in holes that don't show you what size. Having alot of same sized smaller bits is necessary for anyone that does projects around the house since your always breaking them. Having a large assortment of drills in a good case is a necessity for any home DIYer

Oh man, I saw the tiny photo of this and thought it was a french toast stick maker.. I already have tons of drill bits, what I really need is french toast sticks!

I like that it has several of of each bit. Plus it's in a nice simple case. Good deal. Ordered one.

vote-for3vote-against

I have this set. It has more bits than an average home handyman can use in a few years. But I love the fact that when a project calls for a specific bit size I just open up the case and grab one. I have no problem at all with the quality - I've broken 2 small bits in 2 years.

I've never been satisfied with anything from 1SaleADay, something is always wrong with the products they sell. Beware.

@yos9694: I think you are confusing the seller with the manufacturer. When I bought this set 2 years ago I bought it at Costco - does where I buy it from make it junk? Just because it's being sold as an overstock on a particular site doesn't mean it's a bad product.

The tiny picture on woot.com made it look like a unique waffle iron. Kinda disappointed to see drill bits.

@rhinoceros1: Since I was feeling particularly nice, I found you this bulk pack, albeit with little effort lol.

@ambergreen:
But they're very flavorful drill bits.

vote-for1vote-against

@rhinoceros1: I use 1/8 and 1/4 more often than anything. So I was pleased to find them here:

Do they break? Sure. But not as fast as I lose them.

@etewald: If you scroll down that is for ONE bit. All the reviewers thought it was a bulk pack. It seems the supplier bought a bulk pack and is selling them off individually. Bad bad deal lol

Great deal, In for 1! Used Sears rewards points got um for FREE!

I have noticed the cheap drill bits I've bought have been pretty true to size but, they tend to not be very straight, especially the smaller sizes. For most uses, that won't be a big problem.

It has one review and it gets 1 star. Just FYI

I purchased this same set from 1SaleADay just recently & rec'd. a 160pc Drill Set instead of a 120pc Set !! I am certainly pleased with that - although I wouldn't expect that to happen again (receive 40pc extra, that is). I haven't used any of the bits yet since I am in the middle of Winter in MI, but the quality appears to be just fine as far as I'm concerned. As others have mentioned, you do get a higher quanity of the smaller drill bits that get used more often, so that is definitely a plus.
I have also purchased Numerous items from 1SaleADay and have NEVER had any problem with the quality of the products or any problems whatsoever! I wouldn't hesitate to buy this set OR recommend them. Incidently, 1SaleAday, Ben'sOutlet, DynamiteTime & Shadora (.com) are all the same company. Most of the time, you get FREE shipping with their offerings.

Watch out for 1saleaday. I have had issues with them. AiO printer shipped in way to big box, flopped around, arrived broken, glass everywhere. It was the same thing, shipped from another mercant. Took a while to get my money back.

Good deal but they are out of stock now

@rhinoceros1:
@commodog:
There were a lot of great suggestions for ordering 1/8" bits online but if you're ever stuck and need them immediately you might find 10-packs of 1/8" bits at auto parts stores. It's a popular size for pop rivets used in sheet metal work.

vote-for1vote-against

@sssprinkle: No, I'm not confusing anything. 1SaleADay doesn't manufacture anything, but in my experience all their products are below grade. Their customer service is abysmal- rude (as in ignoring you) and not solution oriented (as in hoping you just go away). In one experience with them (my last) they lied repeatedly both to me and to my credit card company in order to avoid refunding me for my return. It took over 6 months of staying on their back to get the refund.

Back to products- I have bought gloves (made by Thinsulate) that gave my hands such a bad odor I couldn't wear them. I bought plumber's putty, which was months past expired (hard as a rock). I have bought brand name electronics (Zmodo and others), which were defective or damaged on arrival. I'm not going to list every bad product, but suffice it to say that the manufacturer's name has not translated into quality. They most likely are not selling "overstock" but rather product that failed quality control. Good luck.

@yos9694:
If you still have the putty, you can make it like new.
You can knead water into the hardened putty, and it will soften up again.

@aimhighwoot: I bought these and tired to use some last night. I went through 2 1/8 inch ones trying to drill 1/8 thick mild steel and only got half way. Had to get another bit from a different set. These are the worst drills I have ever used. The points are ground so poorly, they wander around when you are starting a hole and I was using a drill press. they may work for wood but, not even soft steel.

I'm going to give them away.
