Let's face it, most wood shops suffer from a shortage of space on tabletops and benchtops. That's why we like to take advantage of all the wall space we can. Our Router Bit Storage Inserts let you do just that. 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 1/4'' and 1/2'' 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 5/8'' hole and push in the insert
  • Inserts are stepped to hold both 1/4'' and 1/2'' shank router bits, or 1/2'' shank Forstner bits
  • Polyethylene material helps keep out moisture to prevent rust
  • Ribbed exterior keeps insert firmly in place when removing bit

Quick, handy
Much easier to access than the plastic containers the bits are sold in. Better than 1/4" holes in a block of wood. Easy in, easy out.

Finishing touch for router table cabinet
I just finished building a cabinet for my router table. I purchased these bit storage inserts for an inexpensive way to store my router bits and give it a nice finished appearance. These inserts are easy to install and hold the bits snuggly. I like the ability to install either 1/4” or 1/2” bits without additional work. I would recommend these bit inserts to anyone needing bit storage options.

Nice to be able to use on either 1/4 or 1/2 shank.
It is nice to have the flexibility of using for either 1/2" or 1/4" shank so you can group your like bits.

Excellent product that works so well and keeps my bits organized.
These things are freaking awesome! So easy to get organized. The fact that you can use the same holder for quarter inch or half inch shanks.is genius. Love 'em.
I still have storage underneath each holder.
Full length drawer slides make access easy.
I added a rounded over finger hole to access the storage underneath.

How many 1/2" bit inserts are in a pack? Will Rockler offer "1/2" bit inserts only" or "1/4" bit inserts only" packs in the future?
Gabriel R on Jan 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: All inserts will accommodate 1/2" bits. They are able to fit both sizes of bit. As to the second question, I doubt Rockler will change the product offering since the current design fits both sizes.
Have the foam holders - bits too tight - do these Rockler bit inserts grab the shank tightly or are the bits easily removed (plan horizontal storage) - thanks?
G I on Apr 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am very happy with these inserts. Very light effort to remove the bits but they hold them tight enough that they are secure.
What is the depth of the 1/2" portion of the storage insert?
Michael S on Mar 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 0.435” at the 1/2” portion.
What is the outside diameter of the top lip and there a recommended clearance between the inserts
?
Frank L on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Tops on router bit sleeves are 1 inch wide.Spacing will depend on various router bit dimensions.
What storage tray would U recommend for the bit inserts?
Larry H on Aug 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I built 2 trays and a box with a lid for them to sit in. Both trays are 16" x 12" x 3/4". In one I tray I drilled 60 holes, 6 rows of 10 each centered on a grid spaced 1 1/2" apart. The other try has 20 holes, 4 rows of 5 centered on a 2" grid to one side. On that other side of that tray I also routed out a 3" x 10" by 3/8" deep sections to hold hex keys and spare bearings. These inserts are great, they hold onto the bit shaft without it being too tight to remove.

Does it work for 6mm bit?
Claude on Apr 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don’t have any router bits with a 6mm shank but all the 1/4” shank router bits work very well with these inserts.
The price is quoted per "pack". What is included in a "pack"?
Charlie F on Dec 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: (10) Router Bit Storage Inserts
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?
