Bob: Welcome back to Albany County Fasteners - Fasteners 101. I'm Bob, today we're gonna review Norseman Viking Ultradex drill sets. Let's get started.
So, we have three sets here. We have the black set, orange set and red set. All of these are USA made jobber bits. They have a 135-degree point. The cases are waterproof, shatterproof; and we're going to test that. Each set has 29 bits. They are in 1/16" increments from 1/16" to 1/2".
Ultradex Black: This is what the bit looks like. Each one has a little bit different of a color, this has gold and black. This one for the Ultradex Orange is also like a gold and gray color, the bits. This has the Tri-flats on the end. And then the Ultradex Red has bits that are mostly all silver in color and this also has the tri-slippage flats.
With all your drilling, we always recommend that you use a lubricant. This is a Norseman product. Ultra SP. Which is a super-premium lubricant. That is to be used when drilling. Ok, so we're going to review each one of the sets.
This one, the black set, is Norseman Viking brand, USA made. High Speed Steel, Gold oxy-coated round shank. So the shanks are round. 135 Degree point. 29-Piece set. Ultradex. Waterproof, crack-proof. Amazing set.
The next set is the Orange Ultradex 29-piece set. Norseman Viking USA-made. High-speed (steel), Gold-Oxy coated. Round shank with three flats reduces clogging and slippage. 135 Degree point. High-visibility packaging. Orange, ya can't miss that wherever you drop it. Awesome set, waterproof, shockproof, crack-proof. Awesome.
Ok, Red Ultradex, 29 Piece Set. Norseman Viking USA Made. Cryogenic Bits, nitrated to create case-hardening for extended tool life and corrosion resistance. 3 Flats. 135 Degree bit. This is the top of the line set. Amazing, in the same shatter proof waterproof, shatterproof, waterproof and high visibility case. These are also made for hard metal drilling applications. Superior to cobalt. Won't break or shatter when used by awkward angles, so, amazing.
These Norseman Ultradex cases are really cool cases. I definitely need one for my shop. The cases are waterproof. They have this waterproof seal around the edge. The bits are all lined up, as you can see here, inside this case. They are separated. They have the sizes written right on the case. On the inside there. The case has a screw-on top. It has a belt buckle. You can see the Norseman name, sometimes they have their name imprinted. Sometimes they just put a label on there. Depends on how they're feeling that day. You can see on the backside, it says, USA Made. Ok so, the case, the bits, are all made here in our great country: The United States.
It also has the belt buckle which I'm going to, I don't have a belt on, but I'm going to put it on my pants. For those guys who want to walk around with it, you can do that. It's a great option that they include in this case. And, so now, we close it, we sealed it, and we're going to do the drop test.
Alright so were going to do the drop test. Here we go right off the table, someone knocks it off. So, no cracks, it survived the drop. That's awesome. Let's go to the water test. Let's do the water test. As you can see here, I have a bucket full of water. I'm gonna drop it in there and lets see if any water gets inside. I've closed the top. These are supposed to be waterproof so there is no leakage. Now, this is the same set that I dropped on the floor, that has not cracked. So, let's see what we get. Let’s leave it in there a second... and I'm going to pull it out. Gonna dry it off - the outside. Just so water doesn't drip inside. So we tested to see that it is dry. and I'm going to open it up, here, now. It's dry. No water inside. Looks Good.
So as you can see, this set, Ultradex, does not crack or leak. You can use this outside. You can work in inclement weather and you don't have to worry about your drill bits getting wet and a mess.
Awesome set it is a must have.
Made in the USA by Norseman CTD (Viking), this 10 Piece Bolt Extractor Left Hand Drill Set is high quality and convenient. Using the left hand drills often eliminates the need to use the extractor, but the extractor is included if needed. First, use the left hand drill to loosen the bolt stud while also drilling a hole to insert the extractor. The stud may loosen and be extracted with the left hand drill, if it is not, proceed to use the extractor to remove the stud. Packaged in a sturdy, heavy duty metal carrying case.
Norseman's Ultra Bit Multi Diameter Step Drill Set is built for a superior drilling performance. Step Drills like these are used for applications that require multiple hole sizes on the same material, but without the need for multiple separate drill bits and having to change the bit after each hole is created. Step drills allow you to quickly and easily drill many holes to the same or different sizes all without having to change the bit, saving you time and money.
Proudly made in the USA by Norseman CTD (Viking). Drill and Tap sest saves time, money and effort! Time is money. By matching the tap with the appropriate drill bit, Norseman has cut out the guess work. Now you do not need a drill chart, and you won't need to worry if you have the right drill or tap on hand.
Drill once and get the job done. These high quality, high speed steel combo bits drill the hole and tap the threads in a single drill. The self-centering split point provides excellent drilling precision and accuracy. The seven most popular screw sizes are included from 8-32 to 1/4-20 to 1/2-13.

Bob: Welcome back to Albany County Fasteners - Fasteners 101. Today we're gonna be reviewing Drill and Tap Combo (Bits) by Norseman Viking. So let's get started.
Let's start the review. These are Norseman Viking Drill Tap Combo Bits. They have gold oxy (coating), they're two in one combo bits, self-centering so no matter how you how you point your bit in its gonna self-center and drill straight. It has the three flats, so you won't have any slippage and it also reduces clogging. Should be used with drill lubricant. High speed steel.
You get this nylon patch, so you can close it or wrap it up you. You can put it on your belt, if you want, so very nice for the handyman. Now if I can get it off...It has seven combo bits. This is one of them. There are four up here, three down here. Total of seven combo bits. You get an: #8-32, a #10-24, a 1/4"-20, 5/16"-18, 3/8"-16, 7/16"-14 and a 1/2"-13. The tip is a 135 degree. These are awesome.
Here is your drill point that, you're drilling into the steel and then here is your tap. All built into one, one function no switching; from a bit to a tap. Time saving. This is awesome for the hollow metal door installations. Those of you who have piano hinges or anything of that sort to install, 54 screws into one hinge, this is the baby. So let’s get started. Let's test it and we're gonna go through a 3/8” piece of structural steel. We're gonna see how well this USA made bit performs. I installed (the bit) into my drill, a 1/4"-20 drill tap. We're going to be drilling into this 3/8” steel.
1/4"-20. That's what we are tapping for, a 1/4"-20 screw. First, I'm going to put a little lubricant on here. This is the Norseman Viking lube. So, we're gonna get started. Wow, there we go. Gonna grab a screw. Look at that. Awesome, that is an amazing fit. You probably get about, I would say... I would say probably about... depends on what you are going through. If you're going through steel like this, 3/8" steel, you're probably looking at somewhere 20 maybe 30 taps, drilling taps that you can go through. This is not hot, you can see, i'm touching it.
So using that lubricant is key. I'm touching with my fingers and if you didn't use lubricant than you're just going to burn out the bit. It's very important to use those lubricants, you saw how fast that was. Took me like 30 seconds I think to drill that out and tap it. BAM!
So there you go, one awesome set. You gotta go and get one of these. It's a must have in your toolbox. For those moments, when you're just trying to drill and tap something out.
Norseman's Hole Cutter Set is built for superior drilling performance with its ultra hard tungsten carbide teeth and built-in pilot drill and ejector spring. Hole cutters are used to cut clean, perfectly round, holes in thin materials (up to 3/16" thick). The hole cutter design provides clean, crisp cuts without burrs and prevents over penetration. Cuts 3 times faster than bi-metal hole saws, producing overlapping and interrupted holes easily.
Norseman's Hole Hog Core Drills Set is built for superior drilling performance and comes with companion pilot drills for each corresponding core drill. Hole Hog core drills are used primarily to enlarge existing holes, but can also be used for cutting large diameter holes in thin materials. Hole Hogs can replace tapered reamers in many applications where a significant amount of material must be removed or a particular size hole is required. The 4 flute design of the Hole Hog eliminates the catching and hogging-in experienced with standard drills when breaking through thinner materials.
Super Premium Car Reamer Sets are built for exceptional drilling performance. Car Reamers are primarily used to enlarge previously formed or drilled holes. They have also been known to fix misaligned holes and got their name for doing just that for repairing railroad cars. Designed for use with structural steel plates commonly found in truck frames, rail cars, bridges, and pressure vessels. All reamers in this set are constructed with left-hand spiral and right-hand cut. The left-hand spiral eliminates the tendency of the reamer to pull itself into the holes.
Designed for use with drills, taps, reamers, and more, Norseman Ultra Super Premium Metal Cutting Drill Bit Lubricant is one of the best drill lubricants on the market. A simple application of the super concentrated, high viscosity, no-run formula from the convenient squeeze bottle makes drilling easier and protects drill bits to extend their life and prevent breakage or snapping. Less mess! This formula is virtually smoke free even in the most heat prone of applications. We recommend using drill bit lube or metal cutting lubricant on every bit and cutting application.
