    I got them all at my place some I am missing I usually have about 12-24 of each is numbers letters and fractions as well as metrics. if ya need some you know where I am.
    one caution on split drills, if your drill a thru hole on metal dont do it unless its locked down in a manual mil and vice.
    do not use a hand drill as you will snap them off like no tomorrow as they grab when going through. usually I hold the pc on the mill and drill a hole through it but split drills snap off or grab the part and spin it around. regular points work best for drilling through even alum. thing stuff under 1/8 " material dont even attempt unless its locked down and on a hand mill.

    They only sell carbide mostly high dollar stuff like garr they have a few generics. I use tons of Garr tooling, the taps they sell are the best. but there a tad bit expensive
