We have been using these Bosch drill bits since our Lightsaber headboard build we did in January 2016. We needed drill bits that would drill through PVC and wood for this project and these are the ones we chose and they worked perfectly!
It gives us great joy that these bits were selected to be part of The Home Depot ProSpective review campaign, as we can recommend them without hesitation! We needed them for PVC work, but they work on so many materials.
At $19, they are a 'must have' for any DIY homeowner for projects around the house where you may encounter a variety of materials.
In our Lightsaber build we had to drill through wood down into PVC. We got these bits from The Home Depot after we tried and failed with regular drill bits. We did a little research at the time and found these Bosch bits to be just what we needed. It was amazing what a difference the right drill bit had in the completion of our project. (Watch the video clip above to see the bits in action)
Matching the correct drill bit to the material being drilled into can make or break the success of a project. Drill bits not rated for materials such as PVC and metal just can't do the job. Sometimes, I think as new DIYers, we think we are doing something wrong, but often failure is the result of using the wrong tool/accessory for the job. Take a little time to education yourself on the proper tools and drill bits for the project you are doing.
We have also used the bits to drill a hole in a piece of metal angle iron and these worked, when other drill bits would not. These Bosch carbide tip bits are our go-to for PVC and metal projects.
