My options to Australia are UPS and DHL, both 2-4 day delivery.  DHL has been shocking lately, it gets to Australia overnight and then spends a week in the system before I get it.  Going to try UPS next time.  I think I've used them before but I can't remember.

I LOATH UPS. Twice I have had things delivered to me and they just gave it to one of my neighbors without leaving any notice to which one. I had almost started a refund procedure when one of them finally showed up. DHL has treated me a lot better in that regard.

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.


I won't miss the USPS option. They've lost a couple packages recently, and sent a couple more back to the sender for no apparent reason. You can file a lost package claim, and I always get a polite response to those from my local post office--but the packages stay lost and with USPS you have no effective recourse beyond that. I assume that's due to their semi-public-semi-private status?

It will be pretty cool to get stuff from Tayda in the same month that I order it. The parts ordering flow chart is still hopelessly convoluted  :P


I guess somebody has to pay the extra money for their new webmaster who keeps putting parts in the wrong category. That's the world we live in:  pay way more for a lot less.


Did some spearmintin' tonight...
If you break 100usd in small parts(no enclosures), drops to $5us.
Above that, at $130usd it goes to $2/3/5usd.
Once you get much further up, it drops to a dollar.
Note, this wasn't scientific and I didn't pay attention to weight except that enclosures shot it up, rightfully so.
Just an order or 30 or so pots with rest being smaller 2, 3 and 8 legged brethren.
