Nothing special here, but I wanted to share this quick and easy project in case it helps someone become more efficient and / or safe.

I saw a picture of one of these things some time ago, and decided to make myself one. I have another one that I’ve been using for many years already, but got another router, and needed another router sitter!

So the basic concept is that you don’t have to lay the router on its side when it has a bit protruding from the bottom. This is a time saver, safety device, and saves my wrists that seem to get a beating in the shop. The hole is big in the center, so the I can set the router down while its still coming to a stop, and the bit will not dig into anything.

That’s a great idea. I’ve thought of doing something like that. You’ve given me a reason to do it. Thanks.

Very cool and takes up so little space…......why not have 1 or more!
