    you're welcome,

    I put it on the shelf and it stands without any other support.

    But I suppose it could be glued with silicon glue on some wood board , or something...

    A drill index is always nice to have. In your situation, if you heated the shank end of the bits, you could push them into the foam with ease. I have sets of drill bits with indexes for them all. However, I use a lot of wire drill bits for drilling printed circuit boards that don't have a drill index for them. But I made a sort of index with drilling each bit into a plastic plate. And then LASERed the sizes in the plastic plate so you can see each size. And that works well. Nice project and you will like seeing the drill you want and even knowing when one is out of place too.

    Thanks,

    this was really a fast solution , but your idea sounds interesting, with indexes etc.

    I am planning to make a more advanced project of this kind, so your suggestions are helpfull.
