It’s a good bit set. Bought it in June 2020 and 29.98 was the regular price at that time.

I have this set. It's....alright I guess. I've broken a lot of the bits already, some also have a decent amount of wobble to them.

I find the quality to be quite subpar aswell

Hex base is nice for quick jobs though

shockwave bits are nothing but average.

NOT concrete. Need masonry bits with carbide for that.

I find it interesting that what OP posted has good reviews on homedepot.ca but bad reviews on Milwaukee’s website
The set you posted wasnt an Impact set. Having said that, I would never personally consider a set like this for impact work, I'd be looking for good quality carbide tips (I've had good experience with Bosch sets in this regard), so your link may be the better buy when you take impact out of the equation.

Actually it is also impact ready, website doesn’t mention much but the 2nd pictures shows impact

Impact ready might just be referring to the fact that these are designed to be used in an Impact Driver tool. They should be able to take that level of "impact" (reviews seem to question this), but certainly aren't as tough as masonry bits, etc...

When I was researching which bits to get to go with my new M12 drills, the shockwave bits have pretty bad reviews.

Ended up with the Bosch impact bits, they've got a nice case and good reviews. Makita golds are also well reviewed but too expensive for my occasional home diy.

I find the bits work well for me as i'm a new DIY'er.

As some members have posted, they say they're not the best bits, but for someone who is just getting into wood working I find them quite good. I bought a set of Ryobi bits in titanium impact and those were definitely lower quality. Overall, they're great for me, but if you're more professional or need higher grade bits, these may not be good for you.


btw. for those looking for a higher quality set, could you link a set? My dad was in wood manufacturing all his life so I don't want to get him a "cheap" set. To me, these bits are great, but if a lot of you are saying they're not and I bought a set for him and I don't want him to think they're crap.

Thanks
