Erbauer Drill Bits

I was after some good quality HSS drill bits for use in the lathe or milling machine as there are certain sizes I just cannot always find.

I came across an offer for a set of Erbauer drill bits on Screwfix and thought I would try them out.


A plain cardboard box with: 25 x 1mm, 25 x 1.5mm, 20 x 2mm, 15 x 2.5mm, 15 x 3mm, 10 x 3.5mm, 10 x 4mm, 10 x 4.5mm, 10 x 5mm and 10 x 6mm.

Inside the box the drills are in plastic bags with 5 drills per bag, so 5 bags of 1mm drills.

The drill bits are of a nice quality with a Titanium Nitride coating that is supposed to make them last longer and must admit that in my experience it does just what it is supposed to do.

Price: approx 29.99 for the pack from


There is no rubbish with this set of drills such as a plastic box, you just get 150 good quality drill bits packed in multiples of 5 drill bits per bag.
