ROUTER BIT CHANGING HOLDER

ROUTER BIT CHANGING HOLDER July 29, 2021Heres something that you can make with scraps around your shop.This project can be considered a jig most useful for the senior Lumberjocks but may also prove useful for junior Lumberjocks.Ive found that I never have enough hands to hold my routers while Im changing router bits. Also in my stage of life Ive noticed that my hand strength is waning coupled with the onset of arthritis. Growing old sucks!To solve this problem Ive made router holders that hold my router motors leaving my hands free to work the wrenches to loosen and tighten the collet nuts.I made this one for my 2-1/2 HP Porter Cable 892 router and this one for my DeWalt DWP611 router.They are made out of 5 pieces of 3/4 inch plywood. The bottom serves as the base and the rest are cut out for a custom fit to the specific router motor with an opening for the power cord. Make sure when you make yours to make the router cutouts so that the routers slide in and out easily.The pieces can be glued or screwed together. I used sheetrock screws. The finished holders were given a coat of Watco danish oil after all sharp edges were rounded over.Both holders have 3/4 inch pegs in the bottom that fit the dog holes in my assembly table which are spaced 6 inches on center. All I have to do is drop them into the dog holes and go to work. The bases measure a minimum about 8 inches long to accommodate the peg holes.This is the Porter Cable router in its holder and this is the DeWalt trim router in its holder.These holders have been a great addition to my arsenal of jigs for my shop and make router bit changes a lot easier. Hope this gives you something to build during these hot summer months.Thanks for looking.Comments and questions appreciated.
