    Worth every penny of it...

    I got part of my order today. The 69 cent piece of plastic part of the order. Not much bigger than the tip of my pinky. Seeing how they shipped it via UPS in a 5"x6"x7" box... I'd say they lost their shirt on that deal.

    BTW, I'll have a couple glide clips to show off when they complete my order. I guess they couldn't find a 4'x4'x4' box for those!

    So here's my question, "If you paid $9.64 in shipping & handling, what will you be paying for the remaining bits?" I can't see them shipping them freight N/C.

    I ordered a small gasket last night. They said they would toss it in the mail instead of the UPS or FEDEX route. Hmmmm. We'll see. Best part now is that I am right down the NYS Thruway from them. Anything I buy gets here overnight whether they send it that way or not!

    His most likely came from their Reno warehouse. I've been there, it's a huge place that many many companies use to ship stuff. There actually isn't any AB personell there. They don't care much what size box it comes in. In fact when I drop by for will-call my stuff is always in a box. At least I'm not paying shipping.
