An easy, safe and convenient (and cheap) way to store and transport those
precious router bits:
1. Find a suitable plastic box with lid.
2. Line the bottom with a piece of open-cell foam cut to fit.
3. Make a small incision for each bit's position and then push the bit's
Another piece of foam could be cut to fit inside the cover, if desired.
I don't like the idea of a box since the bits roll around inside and
bang into each other, potentially damaging themselves.
I took a piece of scrap wood (I had a piece of 8/4 cherry laying
around that was perfect) - and I drilled a bunch of 1/2 and 1/4 "
holes in it, I put the bits in the holes, and they don't hit each
other, they are easy to find, and not too hard to transport - although
I rarely transport them very far.
In terms of your priorities:
Safe - I would rate my solution highly in the safety dept.
Convenient - also very convenient.
Cheap - Free (I'm sure you have scraps of wood laying around)
works great for storage and use, ok for transport.
