Roll Up Drill Bits


So sick of taking out my drill bit set and having to constantly clip half of them back into their holders. My dad used to have an old school Ryobi tough cloth roll up drill bit set. It is awesome because the bits slip into little elastic sleeves and never bounce out. Been looking for one like it all over the internet but can't find one with enough bits.

Anybody buy one recently and have a link?

I know exactly what you mean, I bought one of these and I really like it. Too bad it wouldnt be spaceially efficient enough for twist bits.

Yeah that's the exact right idea but my dad's has probably 125 pieces. Spiral bits, square drives, all of em. And each exactly in its place ever time. I would pay a serious amount of money to not have to open up my case to find a disgusting jumble of God-knows-what bits, only to find I'm missing the exact one I need to get paid.

Re: Roll Up Drill Bits


Ah, the good old days. We had roll up kits for everything. Wood bits, screw drivers, chisels, combo wrench sets.

Best friends mom was an upholsterer too, and we could get anything we wanted.

Used to be a time when most euro cars came with a roll up kit of tools in the trunk.

Re: Roll Up Drill Bits


Everyone else have an issue pulling the bits out of an index box? They are either too damn tight or too loose.

I've got a couple sets of these brad points & the bits stay where they belong, even bouncing around in my tool trailer.

Re: Roll Up Drill Bits


Ryobi used to make that exact kit. It was a 180 piece drill and driver bit set that rolled up. Home Depot sold it up thru maybe 2010\2011 or so. I have one and would love to find another one.
The part number was ryobi rak 0180b
I wish they still made it. It's so convenient/compact that it's perfect for everyone to carry without taking up much space.
Time to petition Ryobi via email\twitter\Facebook etc maybe?

That is the EXACT one I was thinking of when I made the post. My dad had it for years. What a shame it's not on the market anymore.

Re: Roll Up Drill Bits


I found my old roll up kit in a bucket outside. Needless to say, it had been there a few years and was full if water. Not sure how it ended up there.

Yep, those were good sets. The bits were just ok, but it is a great way to carry a lot of bits.
