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.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
