Rockler Router Bit Storage Inserts, 10-Pack

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

Excellent Router Bit Organizer!
I needed to organize my router bits and I wound up buying a total of 80 inserts. They work as described and are easy to install. Don’t hesitate to buy!

Just what I was looking for
These router bit storage inserts were just the thing I needed to complete my router table. I wanted to make everything adjustable as I slowly move over to ½” shanks. Having the ability to hold both ¼” and ½” shanks while only having to drill out one size in my woodblocks was great. They hold the bits very securely and provide the flexibility I need to expand my collection.
These blocks make it easy to move and add router bits

A good choice
I bought some of these just to try out. I like them. Will be buying more soon as I am building another router table. They hold well but still easy to remove the bit.

Router bit inserts
These inserts store router bits snugly and in a neat manner.
My plan is to build a storage cabinet for the bits I use most often, and mount it near my router table.

Rocklers Router Bit Storage Inserts
I bought 4 packs of these (40 pcs.) They do exactly what Rockler has stated, they hold both 1/4" and 1/2" shanks snuggly but not to the point where you cant pull the out. Will purchase more when need arises

Perfect solution to an old problem.
Make sure you use a very sharp bit so your holes won’t wallow out. If they become too loose, a smal dab of silicone caulk will solve the problem.
Love them

My router bits are scattered all over the place and it's time to reorganize them to a central location. Now I can design a storage for them designed to my needs.

Martin B on Jan 7, 2019
I bought a 10-pack of these to try out and was so impressed with how well they kept the bits organized and stopped them from hitting each other and damaging the carbide, that I've bought two more packages to handle the rest of my bits. I've drilled holes to mount them into 3/4" plywood plates that can be removed easily from the drawers of my router table for easy access.

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 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.
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.
The price is quoted per "pack". What is included in a "pack"?
