AntonyUK Posted January 22, 2014 Share #1 Posted January 22, 2014 Hi. I have purchased from a UK company some drill bits of various sizes. This morning I went to use a 1.1mm drill bit on annealed brass. I did not check the bit as it was new out of its container. Put it in the drill and rubbish. Thought no more of it and replaced it with another new one. Same not cutting at all. Just skidding. I had a look under a X400 microscope. There was no tip. Had been ground but totally wrong. Checked all the drill bits one by one and all were sharpened differently. Only one had a correct edge Contacted the company and talked to custamer services and just not interested telling me it's me. LOL. Being a Toolmaker and engineer most of my life I know what's right and wrong. They did not even want me to return the bits... And no replacement or refund. No I am not going to name the company but I have made a complant to trading standards UK. So... Buying drill bits beware. Regards Antony. .... I feel better already for voicing it pompey2 and BLACK VIKING 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
