    I heard that shaper cutters were spendy SO...

    I went to a garage sale & purchased a few for $70 about $3.12 a piece. I did get some doubles but for the price I don't think I did to bad.

    The LOML is responsible this time she read the garage sale list.

    I checked the Grizzly catalog & Grizzly's brand of cutters as closely as I could match them would have cost between $900 & $1000.

    I don't know if you can tell or not but there are 2 sets of different profile rail & style cutters in that bunch too that would cost somewhere over $200 per set freshly sharpened & sealed in protectant.

    Be glad you aren't a rich guy who can afford a Felder. The 30mm bore shaper cutters they sell cost in excess of $400 each.

    Fine if you are milling oak flooring for an entire house. You really got a bargain, and not something that would be easy to find.

    If I recall correctly, at my age that's not easy , I think I tried to give them away here when I first joined. No takers. Now, I'm seeing dollar signs.....
