Back in 2007, I posted about the 12x18 granite surface plates for $25 with
free UPS "shipping" (85 lbs of stone packed loose in foam peanuts or air
pillows) from Enco:
At some point these have gone up to $79 currently.
Maybe Enco figured out that it averages three tries get one delivered intact
when you pack them in air pillows.
By the way, I diamond-sawed the intact parts of the chipped ones I received
back then, yielding a half dozen 2x18 granite straightedges, if anyone wants one
for the cost of shipping 15 lbs priority mail.
