I guess I never looked for specific metric bits before but it seems like everything is graduated at SAE 1/64".

Hi Max cause we're Americans we need multiple ways to buy pretty much the same thing, you can buy drill bits sized by letter, number, and in 1/64" increments.

They sell metrics with a couple of different cutting angles, as well as metric jobbers.

Thanks Oss!  I knew you'd be the one with the answer I was just having trouble connecting with you!

If you are in the US, Harbor Freight has a pack of 30 ranging from 0.5mm to 3mm.  Decent quality and cheap:

Other than that, I buy common sizes (4mm, 5mm) on ebay in packs of 10 for a couple dollars.
