Wow... it has sure been a long time since I bought some big bits. I
"have a guy" that does my solid surface for me when I have a customer
that needs it.
I buy a fair amount of router bits... I didn't realize that they had
now reached the stratosphere in pricing. I was gonna whip out a great
price from one of my suppliers... I am glad I took a look around first.
If you are going to make it in one pass, you may have found about the
best deal around. Different makers have different prices, but you seem
to have found the norm on that.
