Norseman Jobber Drill Set

In this edition of Pro Picks, Mark and Josh take a look at the Norseman Jobber Drill Set. These are machine shop grade tools, and they have a cool name!

Norseman Jobber Drill Set

CPT is based out of Minnesota, and we love to highlight products, tools and gears from local manufacturers. For this edition of Pro Picks, Mark and Josh decided to put the spotlight on a local company right out of St. Paul, Norseman Drill and Tool. Norseman makes high-quality steel drill bits and drivers, but their real claim to fame is the Jobber Drill Sets. This particular set that Josh loves is the Ultra Dex Type 240-UB 135 Degree Split Point Magnum Super Premium Jobber Drill Set. It has an extra durable case that comes with 29 drill bits ranging from .0059-in. all the way up to an 1.5-in. For more on the Jobber Drill Set and to learn all the details that make it a CPT Pro Pick, watch the video above.
