just for me, next time you pick something up that reads made in china, put it down. ive got something on the way to bejjing stuck in customs for three months and the issue right now is a rusty bolt, one little rusty bolt that was for shipping purposes. i wonder how hard it is for a product to get here. :angry: my rant for the day, might be for the year, i dont rant much. the the ccib's solution is to just send it back.

    maybe if you paint it with lead paint and call it a child's toy they'll let it in

    if its the same type rules as going over seas, we needed to hire a company that kept records of all the certified wood to build the box. im not qualified to build a wood box anymore :laugh:

    AIN'T THAT THE TRUTH! had a lady ream me out for the duty and customs she had to pay on her end for a frame we shipped her, clearly marked craft supplies made in the USA, Just as SHE requested. Then I ended up loosing money as I got hit with "adjustments" by UPS because she did not give me the correct address, it went all over heck up there. seems she had recently moved and gave me a combined address :S she did not even offer to pay (big surprise there) or say she was sorry. She is now on my starred list and there will be an aggravation factor figured into her next shipment charges.
