You need to read the forum rules at the top of the page. No for sale items permitted. That aside you should have no trouble selling them as they are much better than the foreign HSS now available.

Long ago I scored a box of cast off bits from an old machine shop. There is a lot to be gleaned from studying these old examples. Most are usable with a quick hone. It sure saves a lot of grinding time. Some of the new foreign bits are good some are not. The old Rex AAA are a known good quality. Even though I use a lot of insert tools the HSS works better in many HSM situations. I probably have more than I will ever need but I consider them an asset and am reluctant to part with them.
