    Re: Router bit storage ideas?

    Michaels just had those types (not Plano) of plastic cases on sale for $1.. maybe still be on sale. They were over by the thread and beads aisle.

    Re: Router bit storage ideas?

    Plano type boxes are ok as long as you store 1 bit per compartment. Even then they are going to roll around but at least the bits won't be hitting each other and damaging their edges. Quite a few of my 1/2 shaft bits just won't really fit into those boxes either being either too long or too wide.

    Re: Router bit storage ideas?

    I have used the wood to make the router table Pporter Cable698 according to the dimensions of the table as 698 weight 37 pounds and 0.75 inch slot. But it wasn't possible for me like the wood which is required for the Table is not available in the market. As the company manufactures this, I tried to make it use by the local plywood. Can anybody please recommend me which plywood to use? Or Else should I order from the market

    No real help for you, but the Porter Cable 698 has been discontinued.

    Re: Router bit storage ideas?

    For me, this has been a horrible thread. I'm now looking askance at my abysmal router bit box and am anxious to get to designing and making a better one. Problem is that I'm in the middle of another less interesting but more involved project. So much to do... so little time.

    Re: Router bit storage ideas?

    I don't really have enough bits to justify a dedicated storage shelf/drawer/box. But I think it would be easier to find them when I need them.

    Problem is where to put it?

    I'm with Bob, another project for the list...

    As I was finding the information about the Portable cable, that it's an ok-ok router as it's of adjustability and performance. https://sortedforyou.com/best-router-table. As Portable Router can be quickly assembled and can be upgraded easily. Where my friend ordered Rebel W2000 whose legs are not durable and wiring needs to be placed carefully.
