Another Router Bit Bearing Removal Jig

Here’s another and simplier jig to help removing router bit bearings safely, to extend its life, to get more profiles from the bit or when it needs to be replaced when worned out or broken.

To use the jig, slip the router bit shank in the appropriate size hole, squeeze the jig in a vise and get to the bearing. The jig can also be used to hold router bits for honing.

I know, routers themselves can be used, but I like jigs! :-)

All details and more photos on this page of my blog.

Best,

Serge

I am with you, I like making the jigs as well, and if it works precisely as planned that’s just a bonus. Great Idea

This is much better than trying to use the router and hold the spindle lock, etc, etc. Thanks for posting.

@Kiefer: The little cups are specially made to hold rare-earth magnets (different sizes) and I get them from Lee Valley: http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=32066&cat=1,42363,42348 or
