Gentlemen, good evening. Unfortunately the thread I posted this information in got off track so I'm creating a new thread here for those who may be interested. I want to determine if a group buy is feasible. If there isn't enough interest then I don't want to waste the mods' time and will cancel the request. I requested permission from the mods to do a group buy for a case of GEM SE PTFE coated blades. Below is a copy and paste from the original information. Please respond with how many boxes you would like, if approved.

"I spent severals hours late one night emailing Amazon/Ebay sellers and sites found on Google when searching for the 62-0165 blades. I found a site in the UK, emailed asking for more info about these particular blades being coated or uncoated. Oddly, a reply came back from personna.com, a US site, referring me to a distributor on the west coast. The ping pong ball continued bouncing, emailing West Coast Distributors who gave me wonderful feedback. They do carry 62-0165, coated GEM blades by the carton and by the case at the cheapest rates I could find. The rates are below. I'll be contacting a mod regarding a group buy as others have expressed interest in one. Note: cases contain 50, 100 blade cartons.
1 Case - $538
2-4 Cases - $510
5+ Cases - $490
Shipping to my zip was $19.57 per case.
1 carton - $15
Shipping would be $8.21 - 8.95 for 1-4 cartons, but requires a $50 minimum order.
Doing a 1 case deal, shipped to my door step is $11.16 per carton! I'm sure at least 4 cartons could fit into one of those $8 flat rate boxes which would still bring the per carton cost to less than $15 per carton shipped. That seems like a VERY good deal. Am I getting too excited over nothing?"
