Suggestion: Use cheap drill bits as shafts for gears

Just throwing this out:
I was looking for well fitting cheap shafts, for making a gearbox out of random gears. I ended up using drill bits (1mm, 2mm) as shafts. They seem to work well. The twisty part breaks easily. and the solid part is strong enough of course.
