Now I am a little embarrassed but also thankful & appreciative of your thoughtfulness & assistance Joe….
Postage from the USA to Australia is a killer while your tool prices & range of quality Made in USA tools is superb.
I’ll have to see if any of the local tool specialty shops have heard of them and stock them..
Again Joe, THANK YOU for living up to you sign-off tag…..

-- Lifes good, Enjoy each new day...... Cheers from "On Top DownUnder" Crowie

Crowie
Seems like I’ve seen rulers you can down load and print out to make your own if you can’t come up with a store bought one.
Hey we make every thing else here why not a ruler?

Print out two rulers and glue together.
Just a thought.

Just for the heck of it, I did an inquiry into how much it might cost to ship a small package from the US to Australia. I was absolutely shocked when the quote popped open and I was looking at $165.00 for it!

No wonder the USPS says it’s losing money, nobody can afford it !

Joe that’s why it kills me to see stuff come out of China.
They send so much stuff over here on giant tankers for near nothing in shipping costs.
But you make something and try to ship it. lol

Any LJs going down under any time soon? Could make this happen.

Whats the size and weight? Sounds like you looked at the Global Express price to me… there are typically three pricing options for packages under 4#
