    $180,000 3530 pc router bit set

    Yeah this is what I need for Christmas. The router bit set to trump all router bit sets.

    I though about putting this in tool talk but more appropos would be around the coffee pot...

    This manufacturer has put together a 3,530 piece router bit set retailing for $254,044.44 but you can have it on special price for $179,999.99 this Christmas.

    Looking for the perfect gift for the woodworker on your holiday list? How about a lifetime's worth of router bits? Carbide Processors, Inc., a tool distributor and maker, is now offering a mega set...


    Just think about having every profile you might ever want at you fingertips... er, foot path...

    and the steel shelving is free.

    from the article:
    Looking for the perfect gift for the woodworker on your holiday list? How about a lifetime's worth of router bits?
    Carbide Processors, Inc., a tool distributor and maker, is now offering a mega set of bits--3,530 of them!--from Southeast Tools, the company that took Best Value in Fine Woodworking's most recent router bit test (FWW #191).
    Regularly, the set would run you $254,044, but Carbide is offering a large discount that brings the total down to $179,999.
    [LONG PAUSE]
    "Are you $%^&ing kidding me?"
    It's no joke. Almost $200K for router bits. It breaks down to roughly $51 per bit, and the set does come with 2,000 lineal feet of steel shelving to hold the collection. Yes, but does it come with a barn to hold that shelving?
    By the way, Carbide Processors is happy to put together a smaller, custom set for those who can't take on the second mortgage for the Donald Trump set.

    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

      Another bargain:

      HMS Invincible - 30 years old, one owner. Asking price $4M OBO.
      Fleet aircraft carrier, one time flagship of the Royal Navy (during the Falklands war) is for sale via internet auction -
      What a cool launch ramp... think of what you could do with that!






      P.S. Aircraft not included.

          A. I bought the 66 Pc MLCS set several years ago...2/3 still have the protective coating on them. Based on that, if I lived long enough to unpack them, I I might use 1% of the bits...

          B. Average $51 per bit? That rivals the cost of Amana bits and is more than I pay for Whiteside.....

          C. Assuming they come with a protective coating similar what MLCS uses, I would eventually have it scattered it over 1 1/4 acres to keep it from piling up, or filling the landfill. The Texas sun would them melt it down, creating a plastic coating on the grass, and I end up with AstroTurf that has to be mowed!

          She's equipped with AV8 Harriers, which have been around at least since the early 70's. Why waste money building a launch ramp????

            Think of the cool parties you could throw on the hangar deck... band dropping in via aircraft elevator playing the theme from Top Gun...

            During the Falklands war the Argentines reported sinking the Invincible... reports were greatly exaggerated apparently.

              No, for that price, it should come with Norm

                California has a prison overcrowding problem. Park that carrier off shore and house 6000 prisoners. Extra cheap at 4M.

                    Too bad I can't get it delivered to Lake Tahoe. I'd love to have a landing strip closer to home. The catapults would have to be derated a bit, though.

                      I believe that's the first time I ever thought or spoke the phrase:

                      "My, what a small aircraft carrier!"
