We use the Greenlee sets also, BEST tool to come along in a long time.

The greenlee has one arbor and the different bits twist on, 1/2" to 1 1/2" IPS.

Again, best...tool....ever.

if you run them at the right speed and hold them straight, dont let them bind up they last for a long time

Most likely Lenox if they were white

Stainless would probably work even better with some cutting oil.
