      The Point

      The regular Craftsman black oxide drill bits are good, but what sets them apart is The Point. The special design makes it easy to start drilling, even in hard materials, and not have the bit walk all over the place. These newer bits are Made in China and not the same quality as the older USA made bits, but are still a good choice.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Decent bit for the price

      The Craftsman 1/2" Black Oxide Point Drill Bit was purchased for a specific need in my shop when I was working on some metal shelving in my shop. This bit punched right through the 6" c-perlin with no issues. I made my marks and center punched and the bit never walked on me. The holes that I drilled were clean. I also used this bit on some diamond plate and again punched right through. The reduced shank allowed me to use this bit in my hand drill as well as my drill press.  The bit does not slip in the chucks at all. The bit has stayed sharp and I have used it on several projects.
      This is a pretty decent drill bit for the price and has done what I needed from it in my shop.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
