In another post, a reader asked about a Bosch Impact Tough screwdriver bit set, and whether it was a good buy.
I like these bits quite a bit, as they’ve held up well for my applications. They’re reasonably priced, and their lineup includes almost any bit I find myself needing.
The 24pc bit set (SDMS24), with a clear-lid modular accessory case, bit holder, and small selection of 1″ and 2″ bits, is on sale for $10. It has been this price on and off, mostly around seasonal shopping season periods, and I think it’s a good value. If you don’t like the bits for whatever reason, you still have a good bit holder and a great bit case that you can easily refill with your own bits.
Are these the best impact-rated screwdriver bits out there? I couldn’t tell you. But for my uses, they’re very durable, and affordable.
I should mention that I’ve had no issues with the clear lid. It feels like a much sturdier plastic or resin material than on other cases, even feeling as strong and durable as if it were made out of the same material as the rest of the case. The clear-lid “custom case” is a little slimmer and more compact than the others, which is one more reason why I think it’s a good “trial” set (or refill assortment) – it add a little extra value to the set and lowers the risk of trying something new.
There are a couple more assortment sets other than the ones I linked to here, but I thought these ones would be of the most interest. Some of the prices are lower than I remember them being, but I’m only certain about the 24pc set being a seasonally low price right now.
