Xmas Everyday…


With the Aussie Dollar so strong.. it is like Christmas everyday… For many of us.. the lure of purchasing an item direct from the overseas manufacturer is overwhelming… especially when it is not available here.. or if it is…  the price is way over the top even with rollbacks…..

Even with shipping it can be cheaper to buy overseas… and even taking into consideration GST… still cheaper…

Over the last few days, the post man has been pulling into my driveway on a regular basis…. but today he drove up to the workshop to make his latest delivery….

First off…

INCRA…..

Wonder fence…

HingeCrafter…Metric version…

Whiteside Router bits to suit…

And I got a 10% sale discount…which reduced the shipping cost by half…  so a total saving of a few hundred dollars.. nothing to sneeze about…

Shipping costs are usually the killer but with my next delivery from Amazon.com the shipping was actually very reasonable…

3 BenchDog BenchCookies…

2 Boxes of  sand paper 5 X 10 of each grit…

And 2 toggle clamps..not shown…

Total Shipping…btw no handing charges… 15 bucks… unlike another company that will go un-named and un-ordered from…

You have got to love it…

Merry Christmas…and it is not even July….

    nice score Larry

  2. If you need any help with shipping from the USA, I can provide you with a USA Street address and then forward your packages, even combine multiple boxes into one to save on shipping.
