    Yup. When i ordered my welding lead, 250 feet of 2/0, it came on a reel. Very very heavy. So the asshat driver simply backed down my driveway, and rolled it out, crushing the reel, right in front of the wife's car. While i was gone for the week. Thank God i have great neighbours. So they will ship about anything.

    Home video cameras are great for those situations. A local FedEx guy lost his job within hours when a friend posted a video of him kicking boxes out the back of the fedex truck on Facebook.

    Dropped off the grinders yesterday. My shipper lady, a client, seemed to think it was no big deal. We will know by Monday what the shipping costs are

    Just got off the phone with shipper and Fred. Shipping may be 300$+ minus the poles for the stands. Geez, this shit gets expensive

    Willing to go half, but still expensive
