Hi Jenny and welcome. Be very careful and don't drop the bits. The carbide tips are very hard and that is good but they are brittle and break easely. You probably already know that but just incase you didn't you do now.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

I guess this rules out using a hammer... eh...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Maybe not an answer to every question, but certainly no dearth of opinions.

I agree that sometimes a 3 lb engineer's hammer is the most appropriate tool...… at least it makes me feel better.

I have one of those Bosch router bit sets and the slots where the router bits fit into are that tight I need to wear gloves to get them in and out, you would think they would make them a little looser as you can easily cut yourself using bare fingers.

They're for display, Phill; you're not supposed to actually use them!
(You buy a cheap set for that...)

If you turn the case over you'll see a small hole on the bottom. Put the case in a vice upside down and using a pin set and hammer lightly tap the bit until its almost out then remove it from the vice and pull the rest of the bit out by hand.
