With my getting into metal working, I occasionally have an end mill that gets toasted. I hate to throw them away, so I kept this one and made a little burnisher out of it. It is free of charge, just pay shipping. However, I want it to go to someone who has scrapers but that does not have a reasonable burnisher. I think the shank on this is Cobalt HSS, sappy purpleheart handle, copper ferrule. This purpleheart oxidizes to purple after being brown freshly cut. It will take on a great color. Anyway, PM me if you fit the qualifications. It may take me a few days to get it sent, but you know, you get what you pay for, right :).
