To prevent injuries or droping router bits on the concrete floor of my basement workshop, I devised this jig that is easy to use and is 100% safe. Only a stick of hardwood and few 1-1/4’’ lengths of 1/4” dowels are needed to build the jig. You slip the router bit shank in the appropriate hole and the dowels prevent the bit from spinning. The dowels are spaced so they would leave room for any sizes of router bits, even a 3-1/2” panel raising bit or a tiny 1/4” shank 22° laminate flush trim bit.
All edges of the jig have been chamfered for a smooth touch. And don’t glue the dowels since with time they should wear out or even brake.
