Drill Tote

I got tired of never having the right bits or screws with me when using my 12v drill and 18v impact driver, so I made this tote. The material is 1/2 inch “blued” pine. The tray contains drill bits, driver bits, and an assortment of screws. The tray pushes out from either side of the tote, and a bent piece of 3/16 inch rod drops into a hole to hold it in place. Problem solved.

A purse to a woman is like a drill tote to a man. Nice, I like it.

I really like the drawer you put on the bottom. I buy contractor packs of small drill bits that break off all the time and what a great place to keep item like that. Great job sir. Cheers

I keep saying I am going to build something like this, yours came out great, maybe it’s time I did one and stopes talking about it whenever I can’t find the drill bits.

I love this idea! I have been thinking about something similar for some time now. You have maybe encouraged me to get mine done…and I have some blue stained pine left over from my plane till… Have to get to sawing!

Hey John, cool tote. Not to big so you won’t overload it.
