    Good bits, bad case, November 26, 2010

    I got this figuring it would be a great set of bits, and I liked the look of the case while it was in the packaging. The bits are as good as I hoped they would be. There is a nice assortment of different types and sizes. Lots of sizes of philips driver bits and slotted screwdriver bits. There are also four torx drivers: 1×1.5, 1×2, and 2×2.5. There are eight square drivers: 1×1, 6×2, and 1×3. It is nice that there are extras of the most commonly used sizes. There are also 1 each of extra long philips and extra long slotted screwdriver bits. Those will be handy in corners. They are single ended too, so they fit with the magnetic extender for even more reach.

    Now for the bad news. The bit holders in the carrying case give you a wrestling match when you try to get some of the bits out, and a worse wrestling match when you try to put any of them back. The bit holders inside the case were clearly for display purposes and were not designed with actual work in mind. It just gets harder if you are wearing gloves. I am planning on ripping out the bit holders and fashioning a piece of wood with my own drilled holes. That will be much better and I will be able to fit more things in it too. Until then I have just removed the sizes I use the most and let them rattle around inside the case. It is kind of lame that I had to resort to that.

    The other odd thing is they include both a 1/4 inch (very useful) magnetic extender that fits all the single-ended bits in the set, and a 5/16 inch (useless, to me anyway) magnetic extender that fits nothing else in the set. I wonder why that’s in there?

    Overall, good bits, poor case. I expected a bit more from DeWalt, no pun intended.

    I love the 5 star screw driver bits but I hate the case!, January 25, 2013

    This set of drill bits and case is for me a love and a hate relationship. I own several sets of these as I have multiple DeWalt tools that I use all of the time. The bits in the kit and the other accessories are good quality and overall this kit is a great buy. I rate the bits as a 5 star item and they are well worth the price of this kit. Getting all of these bits and accessories for this price is really a good deal.

    The plastic case that the bits come in is touted as an industrial-strength case that is strong and durable. While the outside of the case is nice and it is a strong case, the mounting of the bits into the case is nothing but a pain. It motivated me to make this video. Ultimately you will have most of the bits and accessories in the case and not snapped into their storage positons. I cannot ever see any construction worker or contractor ever taking the time and having the patience to mess with the poor mounting design inside of this case.

    I rate the bits as a 5 star item and the case a 3 star item. Combined the rating is a 4 star. My little video shows how the inside mounts work or don’t work. DeWalt is a great company and I have invested a lot of money into their 18 VDC power tools and accessories. I just wish they would make a better case design. I don’t have time to play with the bits when I have a lot of work to do.
