Rockler Router Bit Storage Inserts, 10-Pack

Item #
94% of 100

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.


  • 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

Really like em.
I really like these storage inserts. I’m not limited with them. I can rearrange my bits when ever or how ever I like. Since they hold 1/4 or 1/2 inch bits easy to rearrange if necessary. Great idea.

Perfect for storing my router bits
Don't know what I can say about this one, as it's a very simple product. Drilled holes with a 5/8 forstner bit, push in the insert and done. Holds both 1/4" and 1/2" shank bits well. Don't know if they would stay in place if they are going to be moved around, kind of doubt it. But as you can see from my picture, it's just right for storing router bits in a drawer.

Very useful, nice & tight, just right
I salvaged some doors from a flip-house across the street. They were just throwing them away (rather than taking them to the Habitat ReStore). Can’t have that! Anyway, I build a narrow cabinet with space for 30 router bits.

I have a Rockler router table and in the February issue of Woodworkers Journal magazine there is an article in it on adding cabinetry to the router table using these inserts and since Rockler has them on sale at $4.99 a package now, I'm thinking it's the perfect time to start this project.

Rockler quality is always high. I have looked at similar products elsewhere and these were the best choice for the price.

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"?
