Looking for a reasonable ( CHEAP ) place to purchase some Freud shaper cutter heads for my 1 1/4” shaper, any suggestions?

I love shapers but we almost completely stopped using our shapers since buying our doors from a door shop. That said, I switched over to Freeborn cutters, not exactly cheap but US made and good quality. I never was fond of the idea of a cheaper quality cutter coming apart while in production. Folks can get killed when shaper cutters come apart. Not saying that would ever happen, but I did not want to take any risk. But now, since our shapers are mostly quiet, we have a nice collection of 1 1\4 bore Freeborn cutters. I also used insert cutters which were nice as I could get custom profile made for our collection. Shapers were always fun to use, but the added shop labor is not missed.
