Small Drill Bits - Where to find them?

I'm working on tuning my Quadrajet (using the Ruggles book), and I need to be able to measure and resize various holes in the carburetor. I need a set of small drill bits in sizes about #52 through #80, and they are hard to find locally.

I found a pin vise set at Hobby Lobby that includes 12 bits, but they don't even list the drill sizes. I would have to buy a micrometer to figure out what I had.

I've also found the pin vise and drill bits online, but would like to find a local source so that I can just pick them up. Anyone have an idea of who might carry them? I'm in San Antonio, so we have most of the common chain stores.

Thanks,

Bruce
