Lee Valley - Short shank Drill bits A handy accessory (Rating: 5)

I'm starting to feel like the Official Greeter at Lee Valley but here goes.
I picked up these bits on a hunch that they would prove useful and now they are part of my mobile drill kit.
The size is just perfect for many jobs like starting screws, fitting hinges, etc as the distance from bit to drill is short and gives you a better sense of parallel and more hand force to drive the bit straight.

The shorter length has saved me grief a couple of times in the last two weeks as shown here.
