Periodically inspect bits for cracks, worn bearings, chipped carbide.

Put your bits away. The vast majority of router bits have carbide tips. Carbide has a number of advantages; itís resistant to heat, and keeps an edge longer than steel. Among the drawbacks; itís very brittle, prone to chipping. Don't leave your bits rolling around loosely in a drawer as they can smack one another and chip - ruining them. Always put them away either in the container you picked it up in, or in a DIY holder which keeps them safely apart.

Those tips seem to be pretty good, but if you want them to be on the tip rotator you need to submit them.
