I was rearranging some of my tools the other day & stumbled on 4 or 5 router bits still in the packaging I had forgotton about. It made me smile to remember the deal I Made for them. I went into a pawn shop, they had a box of still packaged router bits all Craftsman, some carbide. I asked how much. Shop owner said they came from someone who bought them but never got into using them. He told me $50.00 I thought about it & decided it was a pretty good deal. When I got the bits home there were approx 300 bits in the box Approx 20 different styles & sizes all with 1/4” shank. I have kept 2 of each one & gave at least 1 of each to each of my siblings & Father (5 different people). As I stated above I still had a few left that are’nt in my set. so I had to smile.
Just thought I would pass along some Encouragement.
Deals are out there, if only people ask, & do good things with it if they have extra.
Thanks for my rambling rumble
