Hi all,

Any dealers or individuals out there that would like to sell me the 500174 ZOBO Forstner-Style Bit Set, Imperial?  I imagine I could buy every part in it and then buy a mini and then cobble together the set, but I have the metric set and I just love the entire thing so much.  Does anyone have old stock or a set they would part with?  I've been looking around a while casually and found a couple but no dice when I order it I get out of stock back.

Thank you much!

You can buy the bits anytime you want, they just don't come with a Centrotec shaft

I'd sell you my set, but when I purchased them, they had surface rust.   [eek]
I think I used one of the bits, once.

They experience a shortage of imperial sizes. All went to modify scales on saws and routers.

They did a limited short release (twice, I believe).   To be frankly honest, the centrotec stuff doesn't really move much
at my local brick & mortars.       I'm more confused by the robertson driver bits and imperial brads only showing up
in the installers kit the last time around.   Seems like a really short run for their suppliers.
