Thought I would just do this post, more in astonishment than any thing else.
Last week there was a post about buying stuff in the USA - happens now and again. I put my tuppence in as I spend half my life over here and frequently buy bits and bobs stateside. At the moment though the exchange rate doesn't make it viable.

Anyway needed to buy some sandpaper - about $500 worth - and some other stuff for the boat. Guess where was cheapest, Rockler-nop, woodcraft-nope maybe Home Depot - err no. Axminster - quite a bit cheaper - delivery was $15 and it took from Friday morning until Tuesday afternoon to get to Annapolis.

Cost more and took longer to get a ladder delivered from Home Depot which is just on the outskirts of town.

You mean delivery from the UK to USA in four days? That’s amazing.

Not too shabby, but some years ago I ordered something from Japan and it was on my doormat within 48hrs - Rob
