Don't know if they have exactly what you want, but check out McFeely's Fasteners on the web. I know they carry a few color coded driver bits.

The square bits are "Robertson" and McFeely's has the best bits available. They outlast the cheap hardware variety.

I saw some colored bits at a "Best Value" hardware store recently.

As others have said McFEELY"S is probably your best bet

I have not seen 8" bits. Do you presently have some?

Here is a listing of 197 bits:

I have found Phillips and Robertson bits at 8" or even 12", I think. I am too lazy to go out to the van & look. I get them from Acme Construction Supply in Portland, OR 800.255.9987

About Mcfeely's, I ordered some square bits. The bits were packed in a shipping envelope, that had gotten torn. I called McFeely's to let them know envolopes and small metal parts did not work well together. They duplicated the order and used a cardboard box for shipping. At no cost. that is good service.

The bits are more expensive than what the home crapo sells, but the quality of the bit means more production, which means more profit.

Searching for color coded screwdriver bits


Yeah I like McFEELY"S, they are #1 in my book

I never looked for bits longer than 6", but very often I use a hex extesion:

I prefer the first two 6" & 12" Hex extensions that have the quick change connection.

The Hex extensions that require the use a allen screw are the way to go for drilling holes.

Amazon also sells a 24" extension that uses an allen screw to lock the bit.
