I finally made a storage system
These bit have been laying around on the assembly bench for long enough. Time to make a system for holding them so I can actually tell what bits I have. Came up with these blocks, actually made for my reloading bench.
The 13 mm drill was $23.00, but that was the only bit that worked, 1/2" was too tight, and the only expense on the project. The variable speed drill press was set at about 1000 RPMs. Nothing fancy, just holes on 1" centers on a 5 X 10 grid which makes for 50 holes. I pre-drilled a pilot 1/16" hole for the larger bit and it went right on the smaller hole each time. MDF dust is nasty and I had the shop vac close by to catch the dust.
The block is made from 2 same size pieces. There are 13 mm through holes in the top one, the bottom one has none. They are glued together, the edges sanded on the belt sander and then shellacked to seal them. MDF doesn't seal well on the edges. I chamfered the sharp corners and edges. The blocks measure 6" X 11" for those who want to make some....
The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
