You can get a metric 13 piece HIGH SPEED STEEL set from screwfix including a 6mm bit for just over a fiver & then you can do all of the jobs you have been putting off at home too!

Ah but the Fox one comes with the legendary after sales service that we all love so much.
I think 8 quid is not nearly enough, I personally would sell my house, wife, kids and dogs to own one.

no need to sell Phil I'd do a straight swop but my bail conditions won't let me out of birminghamshire

Metal drilling drill bit will be best as they have better chanaling to get rid of the waste mateirial as you drill into the bait,drill into a wooden dowel and superglue the drill bit in side for easy usage and if dropped in the water will float so it doesn't get lost and maybe pait it white or fluro

I've had my fox one for over 10 years, for £8 that's a bargain.

The best drill to use is a spot weld removal drill bit, as it leaves almost a flat bottom on the blind hole which stops the boilie splitting on a decent cast……..

A couple of quid should see you OK for a 6mm bit……..

The Fox drill has a lovely little plastic handle and well worth the money. Some cheapskates might use a bit of cork. In all seriousness, I like a steel drill, 2mm, less likely to split the boilie or pellet. Then either use a splicing neeedle for the hair or you can increase the hole size with a bigger drill. Sometime ago I bought a manual nut drill with chuck (for about a fiver) from Hinders and you can interchange the drill bits quickly - a great little tool.
