Excellent time-saver
This box saved me time & money. I had plans to build one and started adding up cost of materials, especially the bit holder insert. Mine likely wouldn't have the nice fit & finish this one has, would have taken considerable time, and cost as much. That made it an easy decision. Great box.

Very nice wooden router bit case
I'm a beginning woodworker and I wanted a quality case for my router bits...one that would keep them sharp and secure them from banging into one another. This case accomplishes that, but the bits can be very difficult to take out of or put in the included foam insert. My solution is to use an old leather work glove to remove and replace the bits as I need.

This is a great replacement for one that no longer held all my bits.

I bought 2, so that says something
I have several routers. Hand held, router table, and even CNC. I didn't realize how many bits I'd collected until I bought 1 of these. I had to buy another one and I still don't have all the bits stored away...

So why not 5 stars? Simply put, it's a design flaw. Row of 1/2" shank holes alternating with a row of 1/4" shank holes. Most of my 1/2" bits are actually too long to fit if I expect to close the box and my 1/4" shank bits don't need as much space as they get by alternating with all those 1/2" holes.

Having boxes dedicated to 1/4" shank or 1/2" shank bits would have been more useful. Conversely, having the foam cut such that 1/2 was used for 1/4" shank holes that could be more tightly packed with the other 1/2 was used for the 1/2" holes that required more spacing would also be an option.

Rockler needs to make more versions of these boxes, taller ones for tall bits, ones dedicated to 1/4" shanks, ones dedicated to 1/2" shanks, and etc. Keeping the same basic box footprints would be best to retain stack-ability, they currently have This model and one that is double the footprint.

As it is, I'll be building my own boxes, using Rockler's Router Box Joint Jigs, with customer cut foam to hold my taller 1/2" shank bits that just can't be stored in these boxes effectively.

Fine case. Better constructed than the photos might suggest. A little pricy & could use a small handle. Otherwise a good case that holds a fair number of bits.

Overall I'm very happy with this case. As other reviewers have said, I should have bought the larger one!I've run into two issues with this case that have made me rethink my bit storage a little. First, the manufactured holes do hold the bits very tight. It can be hard to get bits in, and even harder to get them out. I've cut myself more than once doing this, and every time it gets me thinking about what to do differently. The second issue is that the box is fairly limiting on how tall your bits can be. I have several pretty tall bits, and they don't fit in the case. It's a little obsessive on my part, but I would really like a solution that lets me keep all the bits in one place. I will probably end up pulling the insert out, enlarging the holes slightly and then putting the insert in a drawer to fix the height issue. The box will make great storage for something else!

I purchased and really like the...
I purchased and really like the large case that indeed filled up fast. I used a 1\2-inch brad point bit on the drill press and drilled out the 1\4-inch holes. The bits fit snug, however the newly drilled holes don't grab the bit nearly as hard as the manufactured holes. I have cut myself while pulling a bit from a pre-cut hole. I now use a piece of leather to wrap the pit before removing\replacing it. This is preferred over the thought of my bits bouncing around in the case.

Great to store and organize router bits. My second one of these.
Jim on Oct 2, 2018
I chose this because the bit storage in my router case allows the bits to fall out and rattle around in the case whenever the case is moved.

How snug do the bits fit into the foam? If installed into a box with a handle would the router bits fall out if stood on its side or even placed upside down? I'm thinking about making a box or modifying the lid to the router bit storage box Rockler offers so that both the bottom of the box and the underside of the lid both store router bits.

BEST ANSWER: The bits have a good tight fit. I cut mine to fit in 2 separate boxes, using the small holes for 1/4 inch drive drill bits. They can be turned upside down and even shaken around without the bits falling out.
Is the interior bit holder included in the box?
John E on Jun 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes! It arrives as pictured - 1/2” soft foam padding in the lid and the bit holder insert fits snugly in the bottom of the box. The bit holder is a 1-3/8” thick, very dense foam that hold all bits really well, no chance of them accidentally coming out. There are five rows (L to R) that alternate 1/2” shaft and 1/4” shaft sizes. In total there are 30 - 1/2” shaft holes and 20 - 1/4” shaft holes. The box is very lightweight and sturdy enough.
The reviews mention low height clearance. What is the maximum bit length that this case can store?
