Very cool offer Chuckleb to help out!The only thing that has kept me from buying from Colfax directly at 195 is their shipping to Canada. USPS please. UPS charges double and then charges the receiver another $50 for brokerage. USPS and Canada post actually deliver without the highway robbery or drama.
Alternatively Robert, there are 3rd part freight forwarders like 'Shipito' or 'MyUSA' where you can set up a virtual address and have goods forwarded.
I use Shipito and they offer several freight companies to choose from and other options like double boxing, extra bubble wrap, security tape for few extra dollars. (Only bummer is they need to take photos of goods for insurance purposes and to make a special request to note 'electro sensitive goods: not to remove goods from protective packaging' cost me $5, but is relatively okay in the scheme of things.) Often freight charges are much better, especially when you consolidate items. Sometimes EBay freight charges are highly excessive.
