When Delta mortiser showed up yesterday the UPS truck was parked at
the curb when we drove up and one of the two people in the truck
commented "That thing must weigh 70# and I can help get it in the
house if needed" and wife told him a handtruck was handy. Most of the
time doorbell sounds off and by the time I get to door I see the back
of the truck down the street. Pleasant surprize to say the least!
Packaging folks in China must have had a contest involving coating of
unpainted surfaces that included spraying duels at 30' with no masking
of equipment allowed! Slimy stuff EVERYWHERE! Including hardware
sent inside plastic bags, used MS on them prior to installing. Good
news the chisels weren't in as bad a shape as others have reported, at
leas the 1/4" one. Test drive of that in poplar went rather well.
Found a catalog stating weight is 55#.

I have another UPS attaboy in the complete opposite direction.
A few weeks back, I sold a built-up radio control airplane, known as a
Speedy Bee on eBay. This airplane is made entirely of balsa STICKS!
<G> Of couse, the local guy bidding on it lost, and it had to be
shipped from CT to MO. This was a 4' x 3' x 14" box originally
designed to ship a bicycle frame. The entire package, including
packing, weighed less than 7 pounds, so the fragility of the airplane
can be fully understood.
The airplane got there in _3_ days via ground service in PERFECT
condition. I fully expected them to crush it and insured accordingly,
but was blown away when I heard from the buyer.
