Hi woody what's the delivery time like with timber bits with them being in oz?

Timberbits routes overseas orders via Singapore and with this being his busiest time of year you're looking at around 2 weeks maybe longer.
A recent order I placed took close to 3 weeks.
He's a good supplier though and his prices are pretty keen.

I also am a customer of Timberbits and have no complaints (as long as you are not in a hurry)
