What you think?

Picked this lot up last week. all used, some trashed but the vast majority either useable or sharpenable.

91 morse taper 1 drills
102 morse taper 2
55 morse taper 3
A dozen morse taper 4

Plus about a hundred small straight-shank drills not in the pic.

Got em for 40 - worth a gloat or would you have passed them up?

sasquatch: Over 9000!
Over 9000?!? That can't be right.

Ok so its not likey right but I bet its at least $4000 easy if bought indivualy, Maybe $1000 if bought as a few sets?

What if they are imported? Doesn't tell anything of them, other than that they would be abroad. Let's see, Germany, USA, China, india, Nigeria, Soviet Union, Ireland, etc.. ;)

If you're ever passing through North Kent you can have 'em :D

Incidentally, some of them have 18% on the shank. What does that signify?

Don't often pass that way, must be possible to arrange something if you're serious. Even a small number of beer tokens ;)

Dunno about the 18%, I don't think Cobalt content ever goes that high? I think I may have a couple of drill with similar markings, have to check.
