I searched the whole forum for info on 3/4" shank router bits and found nothing, so for.

I did see a 2017 thread about router bit storage - Simple router bit storage

Here's my roughly 2'X2'X2' four drawer storage cabinet, etal. The 3 top drawers have 1X2 boards with holes along one edge. Each 1X2 board has a dowel (not glued) in each end and the dowels insert into the sides of the drawer. The non-glued dowels allow the 1X2 boards to pivot or to fold down into the drawer. This drawer application may be an option for some of you. The bottom drawer of the cabinet doesn't have 1X2 boards, but has wrenches, other specific bits, collets and other such stuff. A few pics.

Sonny, you can't mean 3/4" shank router bits, can you?
Never seen such a thing, in person or in any catalog, or any place.
I found that a 1/2" drilled hole was a bit too tight, so I went to 13 mm bit for my bit storage.

Yes, 3/4" diameter shank. They are available here... if page 5 doesn't open, then use the left hand menu for the shank size. Page 5 has a few profile bits.

I have 52 profile bits of 3/4" shank size. Looking for a machine for them or will try to sell them to someone who can use them. Here are a few:

Probably intended for a shaper.

Wow, I knew I needed to organize my bits, but you’ve shamed me into it now!

Right Doc, a shaper type machine is required. There's no way I would use the 3/4" bits in a hand held router. Even with some of my 1/2" profile bits, I would not attempt to use in a hand held router. Whatever kind of shaper type machine, I would like to find a single phase unit. I suspect the machine would originally be from/in an industrial setting and probably has a 3 phase motor, but I'm hopeful to find a single phase unit.

As to trying to sell the bits, I would likely have to draw out the profile a bit's cut would make, in order that a buyer would know what profile he's/she's buying.

Getting back to the storage cabinet: Mine is a simple 3/4" plywood box with simple drawers, really easy to make. Align the interior 1X2 boards where they will be permanently and mark the "dowel spot" on the drawer sides. Drill the holes in the sides of the drawers for the dowels. When installing the 1X2s, install the dowels from outside the drawer sides and trim the excess. The drawer glides will cover the exposed dowel ends on the outside. Note: The interior 1X2 boards are actually a little larger than 1X2. They are probably more like 5/4"X2.5". I think the interior drawer depth is about 4".
