    Pacific tool and gage

    I'm after a small item from the above site. Looks like their minimum shipping is $72 USD!! Is there anyone that buys bits from there regularly where I can tack my $53 item on to their order and contribute to the shipping?

    Try one of the gunsmiths, PTG I think require you to have an end user cert and be an approved export customer now which is a wee bit more paperwork than required for a one-off... I looked at some things from them a while back but it would have been months lead time to sort everything out using a local outfit that was already approved - I just missed their last order...

    The wheels are falling off at PT&G I finally got three reamers last week, two were ordered in September, 7 months ago, one in November.....

    The three reamers owe me over $1180 Kiwi, still don't have the go gage & the $100 USD they owe me...good times..

    I suspect they are having to jump through rings for the export shite required by the US. Seems that if you have something that has a military application you need to be approved and supply end user and and and, I've had to do it for diving stuff just because the company also sells military-type equipment. It's about a 3-4 month process and for a smaller outfit it must become a "Ah nothing else to do - ah f it onto the end user and supplier export agreements..." type thing.
