I realize that there’s little utility in making a hexagonal mortise however I am trying to find out if there are hexagonal hollow chisel mortising bits out there that could be used for making drill bit holders and other holders for hex-shank pieces.

My google-fu is failing me. Any ideas?

This may be stupid, but consider you might take a
small hollow chisel, perhaps 1/4”, perhaps smaller
if it can be found, and use that for a first cut.

Then you might take another hollow chisel that’s
been modified by having 2 or 3 corners ground off.

...something like that.

Can’t you get plastic insert sleeves ?
