    Default ISO - toolbit blanks

    I'd like to buy some old American HSS tool bits. Round, square, rectangle, cut-off blades, new or used (so long as it's still useable) don't care because it's going to be practice stock for my new Harig. Would prefer it to be in that 1/4" to 1/2" but big blanks can make nice parallels! Ideally someone would load up a small flat rate box...

    No foreign material, please. Would prefer Cleveland or Crucible.

    Thank you, Cole

    Tool bits are a poor choice for practice stock. They are made to be hard and resist abrasion, and will force you to learn things that won't necessarily be true with mild steel, even if the mild steel is case hardened.

    I agree, but the first thing I'll be using this grinder for is to make up some lathe tools.
