does anyone have any recommendations for a drill bit set like the one john posted, but non-SDS.
In the 5mm through to 10mm diameters but the longer 160mm [or thereabouts] variety even for the smaller diameters of bit ?
Or is there a way to use those SDS bits in a non-SDS 18-24v cordless.
I've been able to buy individual 'long' drill bits before but not a small set with the most common sizes.

For cordless SDS I'd say Bosch, for a general purpose driver nad non masonary drilling I'd say a 14.4v Bosch Pro drill best drill Iv'e ever owned and better than an 18v Makita.

Yeah you just chuck em as normal in your drill.

+another one for a cheap SDS and a reasonable cordless (Bosch, Makita, Hitachi). I have a blue Bosch 14.4, and it is fine for everything except 1m walls. And it gets LOTS of abuse!
Yu won't get on well using SDS in a Jacobs chuck. They just don't grip due to the cutouts.

That's the problem - I can't seem to drill in to whatever is behind the plasterboard, so I have no idea what it is that's behind there. This is a flat in a brand-new block, steel-frame construction, so for all I know I could be trying to drill in to a girder. I'm only trying to fit a towel rail in the bathroom!

So don't; use these instead. Simple and very effective.

Aye - they're fine for lightweight stuff, or you can get the wall anchors which are better for heavier stuff.

Generally speaking you get what you pay for with powertools, buy a cheap drill and that's all it'll ever be.

I would say Makita, I have a Corded Makita drill plus also a set of two cordless Makita drills, never had a problem with any of them will drill into almost anything!
