Introduction: Bit Holder for Miniature Multitool
I purchased a new Gerber Dime recently. I already had every screwdriver and hand tool I could need but felt a key ring sized multi tool would be handy for those few times I just wanted to do/fix something quickly without having to go to my tool box. I knew this little multi tool didn't have a bit attachment for interchangeable bits when I bought it but reckoned I could fix that. It did have a small 1/4 inch wide slotted screwdriver that I could use as my base for an attachment.

Step 1: What You Will Need.
• multitool (Gerber Dime)
• hex drill driver bit holder
• 1/4 inch to hex adapter
• 1/4 inch spindle/square metal bar
• rotary multitool
• junior hacksaw
I fixed the drill bit driver to the 1/4 inch to hex adapter with some fast setting glue. They are magnetic but I wanted a permanent fix.
Then I cut a slot down the middle of my 1/4 inch bar about the same length as the slotted screwdriver in the multitool. I used a grinding disk on my rotary tool to make the slot just wide enough for the slotted screwdriver. Then I cut this piece off of the spindle and glued it into the 1/4 adapter slot.
Step 3: Job Done.
After the glue had set I tried it out and it worked perfectly. All I had to do was rummage around and get together all of the bits I used most often and put them with the multitool. Best of all since I had everything already, all this cost me was about 30 mins of my time.
