Trifold Drill Bit Index

Store your most-used drill bits in style with this modern take on a classic storage device.

A few of us around the Woodsmith shop have a fondness for antique tools. There’s a certain charm about the styling and utility of these old-time classics. When our managing editor, Vince, brought in an antique drill bit index, it inspired the design for the one shown here. The triangular index provides a stable platform for your most commonly used bits during use. For storage, the index folds up into a compact unit. The three sides pivot on pins made from brass rods. Each side of the index is unique in shape so that all three sides nest together when collapsed. The two free ends butt together when expanded.
