Hi Scott - Thanks for purchasing one of my drill sets, and for taking the time to write a review. The pin vise included in the set includes two collets, and each collet has two ends with different clamping ranges - so a total of four collet sizes are included. Between those four sizes, every drill bit in the set can be gripped. The second collet is stored under the swivel on the other end of the pin vise - you may not have realized it was there.

I normally don't bother with reviews, but this thing is junk. Like others have said, the drills are fine, but the pin vice/handle thing is COMPLETELY useless. It comes with 4 collets and none of them fit the 1.4 to 1.8mm drill sizes. The sizes I use most often. I see the manufacturer left a 5 star review saying that there were 4 collets and the other reviewer must not have known that. Well, I'm telling you the collets are not sized right and the ones that do fit are so poorly made that the h[More…]

The drill bits are great! As it was mentioned before the hand drill seems to have trouble with bits in the in between sizes.
For the 1.6, I used the 2nd largest collet and hand tightening held in in place but when I tried to use it, the bit slid.
I needed to use an adjustable wrench and a needle nose plier to get it tight enough. Which of course, left marks on the handle. Not a big deal, but a little annoying.

The drill bits in 0.5mm increments are great!!! The let down is the hand drill which does not accept ANY of the supplied bits that i needed to use. It seems that to suit drill bits sized between about 1.2mm and 1.5mm, neither collet will work as the nut to secure the bit will not reach the thread to allow it to be tightened... Great bits, poor design of drill.
