Basic Boxful

Buy your bits by the bunch instead of individually, and you'll have a place to keep them sharp and clean. Plus, you'll know exactly where to look next time a hole needs to be 1/32 inch wider than it already is.

When you open the lid on this sturdy steel case, 29 black bits rise in three orderly rows, clearly displaying their markings by 64ths from 1/16 to ½ inch. Lower the lid, and the rows fold down as the case closes with the satisfying snap of an old-fashioned lunchbox. These jobber bits, so called for their versatility, are for drilling into wood or metal. Their black oxide coating resists rust. About $75, Milwaukee Tool
