There is a particular little coated ball end mill from Reid Supply that I have grown to like for certain applications. It works and it lasts a very long time as long as I don't crash the machine. I went to buy 6 of them from Reid. I am down to one due to a machine break down, and that one is currently in use. It irked me when I went to check out that the shipping charge for 6 of these tiny little mills was twice the price of one. 30 of them including packaging wouldn't go over a pound. Just on a whim I checked Ebay and Amazon to see if anybody was selling the same end mill. Maybe somebody getting rid of extra stock or who knows what.
Reid Supply is an Amazon reseller. The shipping when ordered from Amazon was $7. From Reid's website it is over $12. Seems counter intuitive to me. They pay CC fees and Amazon fees and charge less. How odd. Anyway. If they have anything you buy more than one or two of check total plus shipping charges through Amazon before completing your next order.
