(John B) doth look up and say:
A Dewalt scroll saw showed up today, it was only ordered 6 days ago from
Excellent service and a good price, as far as prices go. Postage was
interesting though ??
Toolking charged $288 dollars or there about while the next cheapest was
well over the $400.00 mark. <snip>
Hiya John. That's one of those, "that's good", "that sucks", type
I get things from oversea upon occassion, GB, AU, SA, mostly.
Usually books, but once a really neat, and old, pantograph.. I can have
the patience of a rock when needed. And the difference in cost between
postage and surface shipping gives me the patience. I'm not cheap,
broke is usually more like it, and the differencc from mailing something
at maybe $30+ taking maybe a week, and surface shipping at maybe $7-10
for the same item and taking two-three weeks up to maybe a month and a
half, really gives me patience. All depends, but usual time for me has
been two-three weeks. One outstanding exception was something shiped
from GB. Damn thing was shipped out in a very timely fassion, stamps
later confirmed that, but it didn't show up for about three months or
more. Neither the seller, or myself, had a clue as to why, because the
package arrived in pristine condition, with no extra cancellations or
any other markings - not even any smudges, nothing, it looked like it
had been wrapped, stamped, and just handed over to me. Strange. Even
so, I'll still go for surface shipping over regular mail anytime.
My shop, my rules.
