|Thread: Buying a new Lathe....Asian?|
Moreover, if you bring in goods in person, or have them sent via Canada Post, they will rarely be assessed duty/taxes on values under $150 and almost never under $100 since it's uneconomic to do so.
Courier services and shipping companies on the other hand always assess and charge duty and taxes no matter what the value and charge you for them along with the brokerage charges as you point out. I have to take it on faith that these duty/taxes actually are passed along to Canada-Customs.

I ordered a number of smaller items (lathe chucks, power feed for mill etc) from Grizzly a few years ago without problem - simply by placing the order online.
In fact, BB will get stuff in from Grizzly for you, including shipping, customs clearance etc - for a price. Saves the import hassle but it's cheaper to do it yourself.
.... Unless, of course, it's changed again. I've no reason to think so but it's some years since I went that route.
Edit: I think this explains it

|Thread: Please Avoid Political and Partisan Issues|
.... and their advertisers.
Enlarging and zooming in, it looks to me more like radiused edges and not nearly enought to give that much illusion of gap.
If I had to guess, it would be that there's a shim (washer or washers?) under the toolpost to get the tool height right.

|Thread: Problems reading from a 3.5" floppy disc|
- do the machines actually have any USB ports (USB-1? USB-2?) (or an add-on card for them)?
- are the versions of Windows capable of driving those ports (or are drivers available)?
- Are the Windows/hardware/driver combinations capable of driving modern USB (2) devices?
I also think that the person concerned was pretty dumb. I'd have said (to the cable/internet people) "until you can show me that it's illegal I'll continue to use it ...... of course you could always buy me a new, modern TV (and dispose of the old one)" Which would be by far their cheapest option (not to mention good publicity).
|Thread: iPadOS 14|
FWIW, Michael, the exact same thing happened to me responding to Daniel in (probably) the same thread. I was using Firefox in a Windows desktop though so your problem may not be related to the iOS upgrade.
I thought it might be another thread in process of being locked but I don't know.
|Thread: How to Delete your account and Delete Profile|
Even "Pence" .... fairly obviously a disposable name?
|Thread: Orion (asterism)|
This perspective view of Orion could have been modelled in a 3D CAD program (with multiple scales).
Wish I'd thought of that.
|Thread: close account|
Can't you just change your user name to something like "gone away" (which should keep threads intact)? Delete pics if you must (it would be nicer to leave them). Then delete your login credentials?
On the side-topic of posting "I'm leaving" messages rather than just dropping out of sight, I for one prefer the former .... at least for long-term users:
- Given the average age of the people here, there are other reasons for people suddenly stopping posting than "going off in a huff". Posting can give some reassurance on that score.
- In my experience, anyone who just disappears is usually accused, in absentia, of going off in a huff anyway.
|Thread: Tachometers sensor magnet|
... which probably makes Brian's admonition even more important
|Thread: Ideal Guillotine|
So would an angled straight edge .... as on a metal-cutting guillotine.
|Thread: WHY THE TANG?|
But if the tang is (or was) intended for driving ....

That doesn't really explain it for me, Howard. If that's all the tang does, why not leave off the tang, extend the taper (or relocate the drift slot) and use the drift against the end of the tapered section?
|Thread: A new [to me ] style of scam eMail|
Doesn't your virus scanner handle email attachments?
|Thread: Rotating Photos|
Just to point out that Mike is talking about 90-deg rotation (which is a common problem on this site) and you seem to be talking about 180-deg. I'm confused for one.
|Thread: Mystery Object ... This one has me beat|
I have to say that my first take on it was of a simple location bracket for a couple of pipes running along a wall (bracket bolted to wall). Guess that's too simple eh?
Michael, I presume you tried a Google image search?
It didn't give me any results but you're better at that stuff than I am.
Do they insert an IV ?
That sounds like the kind of thing I've experienced under the "sedative" (they deny it's an anaesthetic) they give for an angiogram or when having a stent fitted or colonoscopy. Very pretty actually. Do they give any such sedative for the cataract surgery?
