We have had one for several years for taps, inserts, end mills, and a few other items. We own the inventory, they own the machine. Not the least expensive price per item, but with the ease of reordering and never having someone have to wait for a cutter to do a job, well worth it in a job shop. Each employee has his pin number, they want two 1/4 -20 taps, the drawer with dividers opens only far enough to get 2 taps. They send me an email with the correct part number and reorder quantity when minimum quantity is reached, really convenient and fast to reorder. I have my administrative assistant fill machine when stock comes in, foolproof part number / drawer number system (all done with bar code reader). You scan the packing slip, appropriate drawer opens, drop in new inventory. Great for a job shop where not having the right tool at the right time can cause problems. We very seldom have to ship anything overnight any more.
