Featuring 215 drills and driving bits in a snap-open-and-fold-flat case, this looks like a pretty slick package for casual use around the home where it’s not as critical that you have the most high-dollar bits as it is that you have a variety — including the one that fits the project at hand. Our favorite part: all those “pieces” aren’t mollys and screws — 115 of them are even drill bits.
Two latches on the side of the case hold it together in a “small-suitcase” form factor, but releasing them allows you to spread it out on a table (like you see in the picture above). The handle on top retracts, and the bottom of each “side” includes two small storage bins, presumably for screws or such.
There’s a full breakdown of the kit’s contents at the link below — thanks, Ryobi, for letting us look before we buy! — but here’re some highlights:
- 41 titanium-coated HSS bits
- 5 titanium-coated spade bits
- a spade bit extension
- 12 brad point bits
- 10 nut drivers
- 56 screw driving bits and magnetic bit holder
- 4 hole saws
- a center punch (nice inclusion!)
- 3 12″ carbide-tipped masonry bits
- 20 add’l carbide-tipped masonry bits
- 34 black oxide HSS bits
…and more, of course.
It’s available at Home Depot for $50, though they seem to be out of stock for online ordering. You’re likely to find it locally, though.
Note: Before everyone jumps in and points out that these aren’t the best bits around — we realize that. Truthfully, there’s absolutely no way any company could sell even a quality set of lettered/numbered/fraction drill bits alone for $50. The idea behind kits like this is that they’re meant for home use (like we mentioned at the top of the article). Our idea is that this might make a good home kit. Your thoughts?
