Electrician's Arms
went to a nice tool shop, been looking at £50 makita and dewalts drill and bit sets, come back home and been looking in my workshop, trying to tidy up the tool bag with small little bits getting lost in the pockets.

baccy or other steel tin (little bigger will be nice to hold christmas tree step drill bits)+ couple or more little neodymium magnets from ebay or market = best ever drill and bit holder ever :)bitstorage.jpg

Aye, I've used shedloads of baccy tins in my time for keeping small bits & pieces in but where can you get them from nowadays?

All the baccy is now sold in those daft plastic pouches that are neither use nor ornament.
