    Driver bit organizer (portable)

    Seemed like this would be a simple thing.. just need an empty case with empty slots, etc to store bits. Bosch almost does this. They sell an empty case, but they don't sell empty slots to hold your bits. As with most of you, I have a million billion bits already and don't need to buy more.

    Just looking for a portable case...

    Has anyone found something? Seems to be a non profitable thing to make because there's nothing out there that I can see.

    cheers,

    i had one from Dewlt a few years back and for the life of me can't locate it. It looked just like their yellow drill bit cases and worked very well. They also had a promotional tote with a bit holder and had a place for several bits that would fit in your pocket. It was a pain to open, so I trashed it.
    Here's one I found on ebay.

    The one I had was similar but had a solid yellow case and you could store bits on both sides.

    I'd never seen the empty DeWalt cases. Thanks.

    OTOH- if you can often find them full of bits for little more than that in the Home Depot specials. (Though those have been Milwaukee & Ryobi sets on my visits just prior to the "quarantine".)

    For small pocket sized assortments Wiha & Wera have some interesting holders, though again I've only seen them with bits. E.g. Lie-Nielsen uses a Wera one with their Multi-Tip Screwdriver:

    I'm not. I assumed I was talking about the same thing as OP, but he'll have to answer himself.

    I'm looking for ways to organize and carry 1/4" Hex drive driver bits.

    (Drill bits I've got covered, mostly in Huot Indexes which are very nice.)

    The ones in the truck have been in a 3M 33+ electrical tape case (that a roll of the electrical tape comes in) for at least a decade. That's the longest lasting, and easiest to use driver bit organizer we've ever used. The color coded GRK bits help a lot. I like that one so much that I have the same thing repeated in several other places. The lid goes on, and off easily, but doesn't come off.

    i use one of these.

    keep all the torx in one bin, ph2 in a bin, flats in a bin, etc. I like it better than one with a lot of wasted space for the little holders, that they either fall out of or they are impossible to put into or take out of.
    depot usually has a nice selection in the store of small bins and such. hard to find online.
