Yesterday, I needed an insert screw for a 3/8 diameter Circle boring bar. MSC had it, QC21. the 4-40 screw with T9 socket was $2.72, shipped was about $13,75. Later that day I checked my email and found this:
MSC free shipping, no minimum, no exclusions, offer good 12-7 to 12-9, code ENFREE
So I also ordered a gal of Vactra 2 and a chinese drop indicator. Got the lube for $13.50 and the indicator for $9.99. Even got a discount on the screws. Enco prices after I logged in. First time I used msc after they dumped Enco.
There was nowhere on the shopping cart to put in the code but after checkout shipping showed 0.00.

And the Ebay gloat, I got 15 Simonds 12' x 1" x 6tpi raker high speed steel band saw blades for my Pehaka horizontal. $39.99 + $38.41 shipping thats $5.23 each.

The boring bar I got on Ebay some time ago. Came with some Hardinge second op tooling. Insert is a Circle TPCB221

With luck like that, a lottery ticket purchase must be next!
