I don’t really need more drill bits, I’ve got plenty. And yet, I still bought one of these Dewalt 14pc drill bit sets, on sale for $10.
That’s right – it’s a 14pc set from 1/16″ to 1/2″, on sale for $10.
Update 6/14/21: The deal is back!! Amazon and Lowe’s have the set for $10, Home Depot has it for $11.87 with free ship-to-home. I’ve been using this drill bit set and it’s a solid recommendation!

How could I pass this up?
Sometimes I can never find the one size I need, especially with smaller sizes, because I either broke, dulled, or misplaced the last one I had in that size and dragged my feet on replacing it.
Or, I’ll want something a little more “general purpose” to drill into a tough material, such as MDF, than my shiny USA-made HSS drill bits that I buy for use on aluminum and plastic materials.
Shown above is the Dewalt DWA1184 14pc set, with black and gold finish, available at Home Depot and Lowe’s.
Amazon also has the DWA1184 set priced at $10 right now, but their product page shows a purely black oxide finish. According to user reviews, new inventory is for the black and gold-finish drill bits, and so you *should* receive the same set from either store.
Home Depot is offering free ground shipping on the drill bit set, and Amazon too if you’re a Prime subscriber.
I have had great experiences with Dewalt drill bits in the past, and this set is no different. These have a split point 135° tip (for reduced wandering when starting a hole), and 3-flat shank on the larger sizes for more secure gripping.
Home Depot shows more than 1200 reviews with an overall rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars, and Amazon has more than 900 ratings with 86% 5-star ratings for an overall rating of 4.8 out of 5.
To sum up the reasons I bought this set:
- I could always use more drill bits
- I have had good experiences with Dewalt drill bits in the past
- 14 bits and a case for $10 is a fantastic deal
And, although it didn’t factor much into my original decision:
- User reviews seem to be overwhelmingly positive
After using them for certain projects over the past 7 months, I’d say this set is a solid recommendation and a fantastic buy at $10!
Are these the best drill bits? No way. But for $10?! This is the best 14pc set of drill bits from 1/16″ to 1/2″ for the money. If you’ve used this style before, what have your experiences been like?
Sale Price: $10
If you want better drill bits, I have plenty of recommendations for industrial brands, but you won’t find them for anywhere close to this low price.
I had bad experiences with holiday season “special buy” drill bit sets before, but my experiences with this Dewalt set have been much different thus far.
