With what I ordered, it would increase my cost only slightly - about $2.

With it being that close in price for me, realizing the savings it could pose for others in the buy, and knowing that the turnaround is faster and that we'd be receiving everything sooner, I'd vote for switching to Tapco.

Switching makes sense to me.

I have done group purchases with TapCo before and they are a great company to deal with. I like the combined tap discounts and they keep you up to date whenever you want. I would go with them.

I voted yes. All the taps and dies I have ever used are made by Tapco.
I feel comfortable about switching.

Yes to switching. Sounds like most are happy with Tapco quality and a quicker turnaround is always a plus.

I'm for switching to Tapco just for the shorter turn around.

Tapco is great. And you should be able to get 24qty discount pricing on some of the taps.
