For years I have had router bits in small cases here and there, making it difficult to put my hands on the one I wanted.
I always had the same trouble with my shaper cutters and cabinet hardware.
As I am getting older and my memory worse I decided it was time to make a storage spot for alot of these items.
The first picture is looking over my main bench towards my hardware storage cabinet on left with my tool cabinet beside. Photo’s 2&3 are of the router bit storage I have room for about 240 bits. The other picture shows my shaper cutter storage. It is a little harder to organize because of the many difference OD’s of the cutters. The racks just simply slide between spacers. The router bits are set in holes at a slight angle and about 1/64” larger than shanks.
The shaper cutters hang on 3/4” dowels for the most part, some of them are 1” dowels. Most of my cutters are bored at 1 -1 1/4”. I still have the center slide unused, I have considered using it for drill bits, or circular saw blades. I have not decided as of what I will use it for , but am leaning toward my large drill bits. If you have any ideas let me know.
The last picture is the bottom drawer it is my supply of euro style hinges.
This drawer is my air plumbing parts for both air hoses and pneumatic plumbing.
This drawer has all my taps and dies.
This drawer has all my driver tips and extensions and such.
This drawer has miscellaneous shaper and router parts.
Most of the last drawers are yet to be filled, I do have some ideas for the space but have not made any final decisions.
