Bosch Multi-Purpose Drill Bit Set Video Review – Daredevil MP500T


It’s not too uncommon, the need to drill through different materials for the same hole. You can’t use a spade bit because steel or masonry will kill it. Your titanium twist drills will end their life rather quickly hitting the masonry as well. You don’t even want to think of using those expensive Cobalt bits. The answer lies in the Bosch multi-purpose drill bits. Specifically, you can get the Bosch Daredevil Multi-Purpose 5-pc MP500T drill bit set for just $19.97.

Testing the Bosch Multi-Purpose Drill Bits

Our test rig included a pine 2×4 sandwiched between a piece of 10-gauge (1/8+”) steel and a concrete block. We tried each of the Bosch multi-purpose drill bits, drilling first through the steel, then the 2×4, and finally the concrete block. These Bosch multi-purpose bits will drill through masonry, steel, concrete, tile, and wood. Not only are they multi-purpose, but they’ll work in your drill, hammer-drill, and even an impact driver.

For the testing, we used a Bosch drill/hammer-drill for the three smaller bits, then we changed to a DeWalt DCF887 impact driver for the larger two bits. We were impressed with how well the bits penetrated the steel, with both the drill and impact driver. The tungsten carbide and diamond-ground edges give these bits a much better advantage and longer life over typical masonry bits.

Conclusion

The Daredevil MP500T multi-purpose 5-pc bit set costs about $20, so it’s a little more than a typical titanium, black oxide, or spade bit set. However, these other sets don’t stand a chance at getting through masonry and still have a life after. This is a great drill bit set to keep around for when you need it. Furthermore, it makes sense to have these just for drilling concrete anchors or Tapcons.

I’ve seen people overheat their drills and impact drivers by covering the air vents like you did in the “live” example. With some of them, their drills weren’t covered by the warranty because the manufacturer considered it abuse or improper use. They can tell that they overheated. Just sayin’
