Smile Flea Market Find

I went to the flea market last week and found this box of MT bits. The largest one is 1/2" and the smallest is 1/8". All are US made and all were sharp. Six bucks for the box of 18 closed the deal. The owner said he had twice that many when he got there early. You just never know what you will find there.

You do the best you can with what you've got.

The owner said he had twice that many when he got there early.
The best reason ever for going early as possible.
God, if you would grant me one request through Prayer, please help me be the Man my Dog thinks I am. Please.

I never thought I'd live long enough to become a grumpy old bastard. Here I am, killing it!
