Dentist's too if you're looking for the shorter tools.  For the really
long ones  (18-24"), your best bet is a laparoscopic surgeon -- if you
know how they work, you know why that's true.  Ed has a very good
collection displayed on the site for M3


But these new items cost more than what a surgeon might want for
surgical rejects.

Thanks for the tip, Bill, you're such a cut up  :-)
