This is more a tip than a project but it can save your router bits, your temper and perhaps your day. How many times while using several router bits on a particular job I was affraid that one of them could roll over, fall on the concrete floor and get chipped or ruined.

To prevent such sorrow I added behind my router table fence a small block of wood (1”X2”X6”) to hold few router bits. Using double-sided tape was the easiest way.

Since this nest is so handy, I will never leave anymore a router bit alone flat on the router table. A similar support is also useful when dropped on any flat work surfaces to prevent such drama.

I added this tip with others on my website

Think twice !!!

Yes, rare-earth magnets are great in the shop. I use them often as well on metal surfaces. Thanks for mentioning since each and every one would get befefits from using such magnets. I never thought of using them on my router table since it’s made out of MDF and magnets don’t stick to it… yet.
