Richard, your question seems to reflect upon who said this verse once
before. The famous ladies’ name escapes me!
“It’s not the burs in my life, but the life in my burs!” Let’s see I have
still 7 bur-pads each with about 30-40 burs in each! That could be an
estimate of 7x35=245 burs, in all!
I’m not counting the HSS burs, another 200, expensive collection at about
125 @ $15.00 each = $1,875.00…then a full-box set of 25 HSS burs of all
sizes @ $235.00 = $2,110.00…Ouch & OY! Now for those carbide burs at about
$1.50 each x 245= $367.50 plus the $2,110.00 = $2,77.50!
This is still my full collection, why so many? No one asked this before,
sometimes you might be needing some 7-8 burs of all different sizes for one
large setting project…Carbide & HSS. You must have a full range at hand,
no messing around…in my terms are you a Diamond Setter, or a simple once
in a while ‘claw-setter’?
On the weekends you aren’t going to shop at a tool supplier, because they
are closed, so you need a full range of burs in your inventory…a.k.a.
Richard, you could simply have in excess of $4,000.00 of burs all near
your setting bench, get my drift?
