To spare wasted time hunting for the right hex driver bit, or picking up spilled ones, I came up with a low-cost holder that keeps them organized, securely stowed, and easy to access. To make one, first obtain a magnetic tool holder (Harbor Freight Tools, harborfreight.com). Cut a strip of 12 "-thick wood to fit over the magnet. Drill holes in the strip, spacing them to allow easy access to each bit. Epoxy the strip to the magnet, allow to cure, and add the bits. Now carry the bits to your work, knowing they'll stay put until you need one.
