I was just wondering if any of you have had good or bad experience with the quality of drills and milling cutters suplied by Chronos as they look to be good value. Or would i regret it after. I have had bad experience with taps and dies from somewhere else.

Your advise is much appreciate

Kind regards

I've not had a problem with Chronos in the past however only you can judge what you find to be a quality product. Just choose one or two items to start with and, if you find the quality acceptable, then make them one of your preferred sources.

No experience with Chronos, but I bought a set of tin coated drills in a metal hinged box from LIDL blush and the first job I had to do with them was drill 10 off 10mm holes through the edge of a heavy duty steel staircase. Not only did they go through it like butter, but the drill was unmarked when I put it back in the box. Still use them and can't fault them! 1mm to 12mm set for £9-99, can't find a link to them, but watch out in yer local lidl.
