    i was in the right place , right time !!

    hi all

    just thought i would share a great deal i got this week at rockler they are in process of closing out the amana line of router bits and going to pick up the freud line. i dont know why but i also didn't ask. when i walked in and said hi to the gang, one of the guys said hey 75% off any amana router bit you want. i rambled over and started looking at what was there, then i hear hey grizz if you buy all that was left in the case we'll give you 90% off well i was hooked

    so , long story short, i ended up with 33 new carbide tipped router bits that retailed for 954.45 for 95.45 and the case for 30.00 . ok so i lost a couple of hours of sleep but i would say it was worth it

    oh by the way all the amana bits are the silver ones ....the rest are mostly hickory and rockler . i was too lazy to separate them all again

    Ohhh you SUCK! Great score! Usually when I come across those kind of deals I have absolutely no available money to spend. Glad it worked for you!

    Were you wearing a mask when you held up that Rockler?

    I'd say your haul warrants major gloatification.
