1933 Vintage Huot Drill Index Box with Tiny Drill Bits Inside - image 1 of 10

This is a very small drill index with drills that were probably for a watch maker. The small metal box has a hinged lid and inside there are two compartments that are hinged at the bottom. Each compartment was intended to hold ten teeny bits. Each slot has a size indication. It looks like the largest hole is marked; .039 - 61 and the tiniest is marked; .0135 - 80. There are only thirteen bits remaining in the set and two of those are broken but perhaps they can still be used. It has seven different blades in the handle that can be inserted into the chuck. The lid is marked Drill Index - Huot St. Paul and it has a patent number that dates to 1933.

The box measures about 1 ½” wide by 2” long on the hinged side and is in fair condition with some discoloration and spots of rust. As previously stated, there are only 13 bits remaining in the set and 2 of those are broken, the rest look to be okay. Obviously they vary in size and I have tried to put them in their proper slots but it may not be completely accurate, many of the bits are as thin if not thinner than a sewing straight pin.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
