    Sorry for the trouble Greg, I thought they would arrive in one load, how in the world the can make money selling them so cheap, and then shipping each one individually, is beyond me

    In the one pic, are you showing me damage or what?

    Again, a big thanks for the trouble!

    Cheers!

    Yeah, I'm the shipping department for Stu-pid Enterprises....



    Looks like I'm gonna be gettin' a few every day or so till all 18 arrive, then repack and toss them in the trunk for a trip to the USPS.

    Wonder if I should send them all by boat and watch him sweat!

    Busted.... I thought you'd still be delivering milk for a while....

    Yeah, the cardboard got a bit ragged on one edge...not like it's going to do anything. Just thought I'd point it out. I bet the packing and shipping was more than the cost of the clamps. But...I took advantage of them for quite a few last year with the 20% off in addition to the sale price.

    2450 set (2x24" and 2x50" and 4xblocks) $71.93
    12" K body $14.93
    24" K body $13.98

    Missed the 20% on the 31"...23.93

    It was a good sale....

    " I got 17 of these things..." The UPS guy was not happy....

    Yep, Stu's clamps arrived! Al 17 remaining ones.

    What looks like a mess on my table is a neat stack of 17 24" Bessey K-body clamps that eventually will be headed for Tokyo.





    Only one had a torn up package, and there was really no damage.




    I'll be opening the packs up, re-packing into boxes (about 5 ~ 6 per box, depeniding on USPS limits) and sending them on their way.

    Uh.........Greg, don't you think that maybe you should do a project or two and try them out just to see if they all work OK before sending them all that distance to Stu?

    It's amazing that Amazon is still in business with bone head shipping like that. After all, Amazon is in business to package up stuff for shipping. It's all that they do.
