    These tools are junk. I bought an almost identical set from Costco about a year ago when all my good tools were packed up during a move. The only difference is the case was green and black instead of orange and blue and it had a different name on it. Nearly every screwdriver bit broke within minutes, sometimes on the first try. The HSS drill bits are suitable for plastic only, consider them one-hole-only if you drill any metal with them. The wood boring bits did actually work well for me, though they are kind of short.
    You do get a lot of tools for cheap, and some are useful. But it’s just not worth it when most break right away in the middle of a project and you have to stop what you’re doing and go buy a proper replacement.
    I remember thinking when saw the gimmicky titanium coated spade bits that this set was probably a joke and wouldn’t last long. I need to trust my instincts more.

    I also got this same set at Costco. Most of the oddball bits have held up ok for occasional use around the house. A few of the thinner drill bits broke though. I think I paid ~$25, and Costco still has this set or one just like it.

    The price is now $9.90, with an additional $2.50 in shipping.

    $12.40 for the whole shebang? That’s not half bad for an emergency kit.
