I'd like to use my router to engrave small numbers (about .5" tall).
I've tried freehand (using transfer paper to put the desired numbers
on the wood) but the results are poor. I was trying to use a 3/64
round nose bit to engrave.

If you are willing to go a little smaller there are letter/number
punch sets that work fine on wood. Clamp a board to give you a
straight line to butt the punches against and then all you have to
worry about is the spacing, rotation, and that it takes a lot more
force to make an 8 than a 1.
Ho many numbers or sets of numbers are you making? I'd suggest either a
router duplicator (something like: http://www.wood-carver.com/ ) or a
router pantograph, if you're making more than one or two.

Dremel tool with the plunge router accessory is perfect for this work. I do
it all the time freehand. The only thing that changes is the bit you use. It
(the bit used) depends on the effect you want to make. HTH
