Three years ago I bought a cheapy set of drill/countersinks. The bits broke almost immediately, so I thought I would get some quality bits and went to the Fastenall store in Lancaster, Ca. He had to order them. I sent the wife in to pick them up, three weeks later. Four packages of ten bits each, $54.00!!!! I nearly choked, but a deal is a deal and I did want a good quality bit.
The only good quality that I got was the plastic containers which I still use for my replacement bits. lol
I could not believe how fast these Quality Bits broke.
Fastenall, I don’t even give you 1 star for this expensive junk.
So when I am in Harbor Freight, I see these packages of ten bits for $1.98 each. I bought four packs, one of each size. Even with a flat spot ground on the side of the bits, the HF are still going strong. And if you look at the picture, you will see that the HF is much longer and theoretically should break easier just from the leverage.
I must say that good old HF never ceases to amaze me. lol Evidently I have purchased a lifetime supply of these bits.
I started to select one star for Fastenall and changed my mind. I will rate HF with 5 stars instead. Credit where credit is due.
If you go to Fastenall, just buy the plastic cases, as they stand up very well and are worth a buck a piece in my opinion. Needless to say, I have not returned for second time. My sex life is just fine with out them.
