It happens more often than you think. I bought 10 and got them for 150 each but it was about two years ago. These were new in wrap but not Stellite. I actually had to look long and hard to find some that were not stellite because the stellite ones don't work when turned down to the diameter for my water cooled guns.I bought one at the creek last spring for $175 still in the wrap and cosmo. That won't happen again thou.
