Space on your benchtop is a rare commodity when you're in the thick of a project. That's why we've designed our Forstner Bit Inserts to take advantage of wall space and drawer space. They are made from a durable molded polyethylene that holds the shanks snugly enough that they won't fall out when stored on the wall. Wall storage also means that dust won't collect between the bits. Of course, you can use the same inserts for horizontal storage in a drawer or on a shelf—the choice is yours. Each insert is stepped to hold both 5/16'' and 3/8'' shanks, providing flexibility when you need to rearrange or add a new bit to your collection. It's a neat, clean storage solution that requires a minimum of materials and is easily customized.

Features:

  • Holds shanks snugly enough for vertical or horizontal storage—just drill a 1/2'' hole and push in the insert
  • Inserts are stepped to hold both 5/16'' and 3/8'' shank Forstner bits
  • To store the less common 1/2'' shank Forstner bits, see our Router Bit Storage Inserts (#57223, sold separately)
  • Polyethylene material helps keep out moisture to prevent rust
  • Ribbed exterior keeps insert firmly in place when removing bit

Simple and very effective
These inserts make storing your F-Bits as easy and as organized you would like them! If you can drill a 1/2” hole you these inserts drop right in and they hold the bits snugly

Great to organize my specialty bits
I have several specialty forstner bits for specific uses. I used to put them in wood or MDF boards drilled to fit the shanks. But then had rust issues in the shanks. This prevents that. Wish I could do that for my specialty drill bits! But, they present such a variety of sizes, it seems impossible.

The 3/8" holes I bored to store my bits are too tight; I reasoned the plastic inserts will have more give and take.

How well do these hold hex-shank bits?
COLIN L on Sep 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These inserts work great! Just make sure you order the correct size for your bits! They were perfect for my needs!
Will these ever be made so they fit the 5/8" (rather than 1/2") hole drilled for the Router Bit Storage inserts, so all the holes in my shop will be interchangeable when necessary?
