My Router Bits Always Get Stuck In My Router

Q: My router bits always get stuck in my router. Is there a better way to remove these than wrestling them with pliers?

A: Router bits can be stubborn, particularly if the router has an older collet that isn’t self-releasing. The problem with using pliers is you risk damage to the bit—and they’re not cheap. If you have a bench vise, like a Black & Decker Workmate, then unplug the router, loosen the collet nut and clamp the bit between the wooden jaws of the vise. Pull the router straight up while twisting it to slide it off the bit.
