Gift Package

Got a nice surprise gift today in the mail. About 40 endmills, countersink/chamfer bits and a bunch of drills. Came for a friend of Bubba's in Sacramento. He is a retired CNC machinist. He is planning on coming out this fall and I will be taking him out elk hunting, if he draws a tag. These ought to come in very useful over the years.:)

Nice!! Looks like a lot of ‘Niagara Cutter’ tools in there, I’ve used/have a lot of carbide endmills from them.

He was generous to me too. I got mostly stubby drill bits and love it.
I like to use them in the mill as they usually do not need center drill
before hand. I'm sad to see a good friend of nearly 40 years retire
but hope he has many years to come. He was standing behind machines
of close tolerance requirements for almost 50 years so I certainly
understand his decision.

Forgot to mention that it did cost me $20 in shipping. A tiny amount for what he sent me.:)
