So, what is everybody buying for Black Friday at Inventables?
I’m looking to upgrade my SO2 to X-Carve, buy some 1000 mm rails, a DW611 Mount (my plywood one is failing fast), and maybe a few more things I can’t think of off the top of my head.
Just pulled the trigger on a 1000mm xcarve. Now to wait * patiently *.
Bought my first X-Carve. Well most of it. Already have the stepper motors and DeWalt 611.
Anyone know what the $50 gift card is for? Just to Inventables?
Yeah I’m sure it’s just to Inventables.
Which works for me! Now I have to wait the 2 weeks for my packages to arrive.
I am thinking of getting one any word on how long this deal is for?
I also want to pull the trigger on an X-Carve, but the X-Controller is not available and I do not want purchase a power supply to replace when X-Controller becomes available. I guess I could use the $50 gift card to counter the additional cost.
Doubt I’ll be buying much of anything really as the shipping cost is just retarded.
You should be able to use the shipping method drop down to choose a less expensive method:
Yeah. That is the cheapest option I could find for shipping to Norway.
I know it’s far but Ebay from Hong Kong comes out a lot more affordable and is probably as far.
Can you send me a screen shot of the shipping option it shows you? Also what method does Ebay from Hong Kong use?
If you add a bag of threaded inserts the cheap shipping options dissapears. I had one of those in a well filled cart to begin with, then removed stuff until I had only the nuts left to show what I thought was a horrible shipping cost.
The cheap option did not reappear for me after left with only nuts on my last attempt. I retried now and it worked. Good!
I guess the shipping method code behind the scenes enables/disables choices based on weight/size/location - which is fine. I can now get a $1 item(the nuts) shipped to norway for around $10 - which is alot better than $20 something.
But why I need Priority Mail for a bag of threaded inserts I do not understand nor agree with but that might be USPS policy or “shipping product”. 35 to 9 ratio shipping / item cost is slightly better than 24 to 1.
Anyway - I do not want to ruin an nice thread on my shipping cost troubles. It ends here.
“Priority mail” is the name of the cheap, standard USPS service. There’s a cheaper one for heavier stuff, but it’s not available for shipping overseas. (If it’s less than about 10 kilos priority mail is usually cheaper inside the US anyway).
Government subsidies + currency manipulation :-).
I don’t get a shipping option other than UPS Ground on two recent orders.
Firefox on Win10.
@BillArnold it is automatically calculated based on weight and size of package.
I ordered the Ferrule crimper and Insulated Ferrule Kit - joy oh joy!
Clean wires for a clean new year!
