Re: [X_Series_Mills] Re: OT: need help shipping for cali to hawaii !!!!!!
- Another thought, being retired Military myself. If you know anyone (relative, friend,etc) in the military that is being shipped to Hawaii that hasn't met their household goods weight limit you could order it, sell it to them for a dollar (to make it legal) and they could have it included with their shipment and sell it back to you when they get there. I know, I know, going around your elbow to get to your thumb, but it happens all the time and they are entitled to ship stuff when they move.Just a thought,Carl H----- Original Message -----From: tlyee63Sent: Tuesday, February 01, 2011 12:51 AMSubject: [X_Series_Mills] Re: OT: need help shipping for cali to hawaii !!!!!!
Any engine,4cyl v6 or v8 ,Yeah I called out engine supplier and got the info who they used, and I passed that info to LMS, hopefully something can be found soon, I'm at a point for projects that I need a mill, otherwise I got to pay some to do something I know I can do if I had the tools, sometimes it's worth it,but nnot in this case
