A magnetic drill and driver bit storage rack is a simple and easy way to keep all those loose bits you may have laying all over the shop. In fact, the type of magnets that I used in this build are strong enough to hold not just drill and driver bits, but screwdrivers and a 16oz hammer. This is a quick and easy way to keep all those small metal pieces from getting lost in the void.

You will find a link to the particular style magnets I used as well.

Be careful using magnetic tape for this project. Most of those are for lightweight holding applications. Drill bits would seem to fit the definition of "lightweight" but they are also round. A stronger surface gauss rating is required to firmly hold round items onto a flat surface. In my opinion you need a medium strength magnet at least.

I would also like to announce the launch of my second YouTube Channel called Simply Easy Homesteading:

If you enjoy the video format I feature here on my main channel along with my sometimes quirky sense of humor and you like all things DIY. Then you will enjoy Simply Easy Homesteading. Granted the channel page is still under construction.
