  • A quality question about "Triumph" drills.

    Hiya folks, I'm considering picking up a new drill set and have decided to jump into a fractional - number - letter set all in one and right now Enco is offering a decent deal on This set of Trumph's


    I'm curious as to IF anyone has tried This brand and that they think of them. Thanks in advance =)

    I bought a set of screw machine length black oxide coated number drills from Enco a few years ago and they're awesome. No complaints at all.

      I have used Triumph drills with good success. Actually just purchased a few replacement bits from them just this week. Mine ever had made in USA on the package.

        MUCH nicer than the cheapo Chinese drills

          I have purchased quite a few Triumph ThunderBit drills and have been very happy. They run rings around all the Chinese stuff I've ever had, staying sharp a long time and drilling nice straight uniform holes.

          Somewhere along the line I was told they are part of the Precision line, but I have no idea how accurate that information is.

          A happy camper......

            Another thumbs up for Triumph. BUT, those are regular 118 degree point drills - - once I tried the 135-degree split-point, my "hole" life changed! I'm happier spending more for drills that start on center, cut with less pressure, and don't need a pilot hole.
            Cheers,

              I concur with Frank, I only buy the Triumphs in 135 degree...

                Thanks for the replies folks. I've been using the Chicago Latrobe bits and am not very happy with the latest set, there not bad, but not as good as I would have expected. I just flat would never spend on the cheapo chinese stuff, I know better

                I've always had a preferance for the brite finish rather than the black oxide, but I might make the switch over. However I expect that I'll stick to the 118° tips as I find them to work just fine, but then again I tend to resharpen using 4 facet. Again, many thanks for the recommendations
