Baltimore, Md.

DeWALT's sturdy new Tough Case set keeps drill bits organized in one convenient storage case. The Tough Case is made from ABS plastic for maximum durability, so it won't dent or rust. It's also built for stability and sturdiness when opened. Inside, the bits are readily accessible from corrosion-resistant stainless steel sleeves labeled with permanent size markings. This makes it easy to find and retrieve the proper bit and then replace it when finished. The Tough Case comes with a 29-piece collection of DeWALT Pilot Point® drill bits ranging in size from 1/16- to 1/2-inch. For more information, call (800) 4-DeWALT or visit www.DeWALT.com.
