Topic tags/keywords: router bits sale

I accidently ended up at Rockler near Southcenter Mall South of Seattle today. They have Porter Cable router bits for $4.99, each!! They are mostly rabbeting, varioius round over sizes, flush trims, bull noses, nothing very fancy, just the basic stuff, but a very good price. Forgot to ask if it was that store only or system wide.

I really did end up there accidently due to a wrong turn and traffic congestion :-))

Woow I was at my local Rockler early today buying some dado blades and featherboards, and the Porter Cable display cabinet was totally empty…. I guess I was late….

Jim, It’s the truth!! I have to stick to it :-))

Alonso, They had cardboard boxes setting out. About 10 or so. Those were the only ones at the price.

mmm yes but I look and they were some Jet 6” and 4” C clamps which I also took advantage for $3.99 and $2.99….. I don’t know I think I got to check that out tomorrow again…

I was driving my truck past Rockler today and suddenly the steering went out and I swerved to the right and by the time I got it stopped I was right in the Rockler parking lot, so I said what the heck, I went in and looked around :-)

That sounds like a great price on the router bits. Would be worth buying a few just to have them on hand.

that is the exact same reason my wife always seems to end up at shoe shops. She has a lot of shoes.

Don’t have the lathe set up yet. Been out of town most of the last 10 days.
