    I have mine all boxed up and ready to hit the post office as well.
    Might need to wait till tomorrow though as a nasty storm has rolled in..
    Freezing and side blowing snow goodness abounds.
    Wonder what the AU hits gonna be for me. Relatively small box, but bigger than you’d think as I didn’t want to coil the leather too tightly.

    I have a stack of the those forms at the house now. It is a PITA. And I too have been told the box is too small for the label. Its like they just dont want the money or job. If there was a better way to ship Id be happy to learn it.

    It’s why Amazon ships air. Standard box shapes are cheaper if you control the entire process stream.
    Wasted space is negated by speed of delivery and packing unpacking of goods. But for us, size matters.
    Hehe.

    I once shipped an archery bow in an airline approved case. If I used just the case I could not insure it. But if I put it in a cardboard box I could.....

    They still dinged the case but not the bow!

    I guess the U.S. gov is still giving the Chinese the 'Developing country' status.
    They can ship for free here and then our AU allies and ourselves are charged mightily.

    Don't sit well...Mike's fee for shipping the strop will tell at least some of the tale.


    BTW, did not intend to bash anyone other than our PO.
    We had a nice Mo this time. In spite of it all!

    I Pray you fellas will ultimately receive!

    The shipping fees to AU can be ridiculous and inconsistent and a bloody PITA. I'm kinda used to the stupid charges we get slugged with

    Ok. I just erased my giant long Canada Post rant. It seems there are a few of us on the same boat.
