I’m looking for a wood drill bit index/set with at least several of the same size bits.
For example, 5) 1/16”, 5) 1/8””, etc…
Every set I see only has one of each. As soon as that 1/8” bit falls off a ladder the functionality of the set drops about 90%. But it would be sweet to have a small case of a bunch. I suppose I can create that myself if I have to.

Thanks!

That woodcraft set goes on sale for half off several times a year(I think), which is much closer to its actual worth. These will not be the straightest bits you might buy.

edit: Oh yeah, looks like christmas might be the next cycle: https://camelcamelcamel.com/WoodRiver-100-Piece-Combo-Point-Twist/product/B00EC84YOO

Typically, it’s just the smaller bits that are prone to breakage – so buying something like that 100 pc kit from Woodcraft will include a lot of bits you will never use or need IMO. I find it easier and cheaper to just get multiple jobber packs of the sizes I use/break the most – which are basically just 1/16” and 1/8” in my case. You can get 7pc packs of HSS titanium coated 3/32”, 7/64” or 1/8” bits for less than $3, and a 7pc pack of 1/16” for under $2 at HF.

Cheers,
