    Even though it was addressed to my wife, it STILL got opened by the snoopy guys at Japan Post, cost me a day, it was paid for delivery by Monday, today is Tuesday........
    You see, 4 out of 5 of my boxes that go through the post get opened by Japan Post guys, and resealed by the red tape you see on the top edges.....

    Oh well, everything looks good.....

    Can't wait to get a chance to use these puppies!

    The shipping was almost as much as the router with the free sander

    $109 for the tools, and $87 for shipping (in round numbers) Not bad at all!

    Cheers!

    Very cool Stu. A big congrats!

    But maybe it wasn't the Post guys that delayed it yesterday. Maybe it was delayed by the Martin Luther King holiday like EVERYWHERE ACROSS THIS STINKIN' COUNTRY!


    (I'm also waiting for a package to be delivered. Okay, I feel better now)


    Congrats again Stu.
    Thanks, Mark.

    Greg.....I wonder how long it will take Stu to figure out you removed the brushes from those motors?

    Greg where did you find such a good deal on the tools? If you don't mind me asking.

    Mark, the box was opened by Japan Post, the customs guys, the reseal it with their own special tape that says "We can mess with your stuff any time we want, go pound sand"

    Greg kept the case for the sander, I N-E-V-E-R keep them cases, I usually just toss them in the trash, they take up too much room! Greg needed a case, and it made the shipping box smaller and lighter, saving me money, so we both won on that point!

    I already plugged the tools in and ran them, Greg, if you rewired them for 240V, you need to work on your sparky skills

    Can't wait to use them, but I've got a Dungeon to finish renovating!

    Oh Stu don't tell me that. What about the environment? Don't they recycle plastics there?

    It's a very nice sander. IMHO, it has far less vibration than my DeWalt ROS that I had. Seems to work faster also.

    But Stu, you forgot to blur your address...
