DRILL BITS: New carbide 1/8" shank drill bits normally cost on average $1.75~$4.00 each in boxes of 50. The board fabrication houses obviously use these up at incredible rates. Resharpening companies buy them up cheap, resharpen and put them out to pasture at huge discounts. For our applications, there is really no reason to use new bits. The only problem with finding the bit sizes you want is to locate a vendor that will sell you JUST what you want.
