Little things can make a big difference. I didn’t have a good system for storing bits for my Dremel tool. This is made from red oak scraps. An hour and a half well spent.

I rough cut the blank on the bandsaw, and cleaned it up with a plane. Drill presses are made for jobs like this.

I turned a knob, and put it together with Gorilla Super Glue.

Ya’ know, when I first saw the small picture of this project, I thought I was looking at a menorah. :)

Hairy, that is just so neat, quick and easy to find what you’re looking for. My Dremel with its bits and pieces are still the the bag, I dont use it that often. My son bought one too and I know he uses it often, I will ask him if he would like something like this. Hope you dont mind me copying your idea.

Thanks for sharing Hairy.

ya gotta have somethin/somewhere to store all those bitty bits. it works. this is just a carousel that I use to hold both Dremel, and Foredom bits. Added a few baby jars for really small parts, accessories, etc. it works.

I really like the carousel idea. I have several dremels and a foredom machine that I use all the time. in addition to woodworking and carpentry I also have a really bad R/C offroad truck problem and the plethora of bits and attachments sit in a simple mahogany block with a bunch of holes in it ( actually several mahogany blocks to be honest) .
I too am going to borrow your idea if i may? I might need to make two though.

If you’re asking me, go for it.

If you’re asking about the carousel, you have to check with Roger. I’m sure he’ll give you the green light, he’s a pretty good fellow, but have some Coors Light for backup.
