It’s Like Christmas

Here’s the result of a lot of small ebay auctions last week… Our office manager gave me quite a look when she walked in with no fewer than seven flat rate US Postal Service boxes for me today.  My goal is to avoid buying more cheap Chinese tooling, and seek out good deals on high quality stuff on eBay.  So far, so good!  This should represent a significant upgrade and expansion of my tooling for the mill, all bought for dimes on the dollar.

Inventory of the haul after the cut.
