If you’re anything like me, you enjoy tackling projects that require a new tool purchase. Often, this is something as simple as a new router bit. And we all know that good router bits can be expensive. After throwing router bits in drawers and hearing them clank together, I decided to upgrade how I was storing my expensive bits.
‘lil oil. I’ve started to make cases for my router bits out of PVC pipe and end caps. I’ve found that 3⁄4" pipe works for most bits and a pair of caps keep the router bit inside to protect the cutting edge. Because it might be awhile before I use a router bit again, I also add a cotton ball saturated with a little oil to keep rust at bay. To quickly find a bit when I need it, I mark the outside of the tube with the type and size of bit.
