Not to change the subject, but what did they have to say about the oil issue or do you have that in another thread?
You need a friend across the border. Would that not make it somewhat cheaper or is there a huge import fee? I had a fellow who bought some Rototiller parts from me who lived in Canada and to send it to him in Canada it would have been $40 more. He had a son across the border and only ask that I write a detailed bill of sale for him to take it across the border after picking it up from his son.Sure is. Was never like that here. Years ago we were doing well mining coal and every power transmission distributor, bearing manufacturer you could name was set up here which huge inventories. Could get what ever we needed and at great prices Then 17 years ago they closed the mines and with in 3 years poof these companies were gone
I know my brother alone went from two large shipments a month out of west virginia to canada to maybe one a year now
So after that I got what I needed on e-bay and had it shipped usps, then about 6 years ago it seemed they no longer wanted to handle international shipments and their rates went up like 4 times to the extent we can no longer ship from the US
Like $60.25 US to ship that row marker to me is nuts when only a few years ago probally 20 would have done it. I love buying made in USA but cannot afford to ship it
