    3D Printed Drill Bit Holder

    This is one of those 'Just-for-Fun' sitting around on Thanksgiving projects.

    3D Printed a snap-together Drill Bit Holder to mount on the side of the my Drill Press.

    There are certain drill bits I seem to use a lot more than others, so decided to make a holder that is easy to reach with 2 of each size that I use a lot.

    Only put in one long 1/2" drill bit because I use the step bits more these days for the 1/2" and 3/4" holes.

    Staggered the heights to make them easy to grab.

    I'll probably cast a better holder sometime out of Aluminum but this should work for now.
