Router Bit Storage Ideas / Idées de rangement de fers à toupie

Je viens le compléter deux mini tiroirs pour ranger des fers à toupie (fraises de défonceuse). Je vais maintenant les aménager et les remplir.

I just completed two mini drawers to store router bits. Now, let’s organize and fill them.

___________________________________________________________

C’est une bonne opportunité pour utiliser mes retailles et mes chutes.

This is a good opportinity to use my scraps and offcuts.

___________________________________________________________

Je coupe quelques morceaux selon la largeur du tiroir et selon les fers à ranger.

I cut few pieces according to the width of the drawer and according to the router bits to be stored.

___________________________________________________________

À la perceuse à colonne, je perce des trous un calibre plus gros que la tige des fers à toupie. Remarquez que les trous sont limités en profondeur. Pour les tiges de 1/2’’, je vais bientôt présenter un truc pertinent.

At the drill press, I bore holes one size larger than the shank of the router bits. Take note that the holes are not drilled through. For 1/2’’ shanks, I’ll come up soon with a related tip.

___________________________________________________________

Ensuite je fraise les trous pour y glisser les fers facilement.

Then I chamfer the holes for an easy slip.

___________________________________________________________

Un à un, j’ajoute des ensembles.

One by one, I’m adding sets.

___________________________________________________________

___________________________________________________________

Ici un petit trou est dédié à la clé hexagonale, laquelle retient roulements à billes et rondelles.

Here a small hole is dedicated to the hex key, which gathers bearings and washers.

___________________________________________________________

Enfin un tiroir plein, bien organisé.

At last, a full drawer, well organized.

___________________________________________________________

Jusqu’à ce que l’autre tiroir soit plein, je colle un morceau de tapis antidérapant sous les plateaux.

Until the second drawer is full, I stick a piece of anti skid pad under the trays.

___________________________________________________________

Remarquez que j’ai coupé des plateaux supplémentaires pour les prochains fers à toupie.

Note that I already cut more trays for any upcoming router bits.

___________________________________________________________

Voici d’autres de mes idées de rangement que j’ai utilisées depuis des années.

Here are more of my storing ideas I used over the years.

___________________________________________________________

Un plateau vertical que j’ai ajouté sur le côté gauche de ma table à toupie secondaire.

A vertical tray I added on the left side of my secondary router table.

___________________________________________________________

Du côté droit de cette même table, j’ai aménagé un plateau pour des fers, un autre pour des guides de gabarit et j’avais fait des rainures en prévision d’un troisième plateau.

On the right side of the same table, I planned for a tray for more bits, another for guide bushings and I also milled dadoes in anticipation of a third tray.

___________________________________________________________

___________________________________________________________

___________________________________________________________

Ma table à toupie principale a aussi ses tiroirs.

My main router table also has its drawers.

___________________________________________________________

Certains ensembles sont viennent avec leur propre support ou coffret.

Some sets come with their own support or box.

___________________________________________________________

___________________________________________________________

Ce dernier modèle est fait pour être accroché au mur. Un jour !

This last model is made to be hung a on wall. One day!

___________________________________________________________

Chacun aura ses propres idées pour ranger ses fers à toupie selon sa collection et l’espace disponible.

Eveyone will have his own ideas to store his router bits according to his collection and the available space.

  1. Gee, and I thought I had a lot of router bushings! Leave it to Serge to have more of something than me…

    • Salut Chirs,

      Yep, over 40 years I accululated lots of woodworking stuff. Watch out! And since I have two routers, I thought having two sets of bushing could be handy.

      Best.

    Hi Serge, I hope I can call you Serge anyway?

    I am puzzling at what the large white router bit is in picture 11. Looks a bit like a batwing but I can’t imagine its purpose.

    Maybe its just the angle in the photo confusing me?

    Regards, Al

    • Hi Al, Of course you can call me Serge. First this is my name, second, we are both woodworkers ! 😉

      This particular white router bit is for milling rosette and is called Rosette Bit. No need to say that it should spin at low speed ! And here is a rosette sample made with such cutter.

        Hi Serge, Doh! It seems obvious now you told me. I must be getting old and feeble minded. 😉

        Nice of you to call me a woodworker though! I was an electrician for 35 years until it destroyed my knees and woodwork was always what I wanted to do but knew I wasn’t good enough to earn a living at it. That didn’t stop me buying tools and nice wood whenever I could though, so when I stopped working I had a ready made full time hobby.

        I will mention to my wife that you referred to me as a woodworker, she always seems to think the only thing I produce is sawdust! 😉

        The only thing I seem to do at the moment is make jigs and tools to make woodworking easier, like the electronic router lift I made just for the sake of it, and to prove I could do it.

        Anyway back to the shop now, make some more sawdust. 🙂

        All the best, Al

        • Hi Al, Of course you’re a woodworker. A butcher wouldn’t stop at my blog !

          If as you wife say you make tons of sawdust, have it glued and paneled into MDF boards. (just kidding). Making sawdust is the ultimate proof that you’re a woodworker. Otherwise, who would. I too make more jigs and tools than more than anything else. The main thing is spending time where you like and doing what you like, jigs, furniture or buildings.

          You’re right, let’s get back in the shop ! 🙂

          Best, Serge
