While in the process of building my router bit case. I came to the bit racks them selves. They would require a total of 110(approx) holes.
There was one thing I did not want to do, two things actually. And that is: 1. layout each whole on the work piece. 2. set a stop block on a fence for each hole. With that the case I made a fixture similar to one I used to use in metal fabrication from time to time.
It’s a flip up hole index.
You do have to layout the first hole location and position the indexer, but from then on you only need to do is flip up the indexer and set it in the hole you just drilled.
The first picture shows the indexer set in a hole I just drilled. The next picture shows the indexer flipped up to reposition the work piece.
The third picture shows why I wanted to make such a tool.
The indexer can be refitted to accommodate different points for various holes.
The finished Router bit cabinet can be seen here
Thanks for looking.
