I want to apologize to all of you who griped about the excessive pricing from McKenzie. Now that I no longer run a shop, I still find myself in need of supplies that I know can be found at McKenzie. Silly me, as I wasnt ordering several hundred dollars (or thousands) where I seldom noticed shipping, I placed an order. The order was several hangers and a tube containing 20 #12 guage wires. The 2 inch tube and a box (4x4x8 with a dozen small hangers) arrived from Camp Hill, PA (a 139 mile trip from here) arrived the next day UPS. Total cost of the merchandise (which may have weighed 5 pounds) was $41.53. Then I looked at my bill. Stickershock. It listed "Freight" as $56.83 . At the same time, I placed an order for 2 black buckskin hides from Quil Ceda Leather in Marysville, WA. That package (3x6x9) was sent USPS Second Day Priority. The box weighed about 2 pounds. It arrived today (one day after the McKenzie order). The shipping cost was $16 ($14.90 postage, $1.10 for packing and handling). Marysville, Washington is 2,855 miles from my home in Delaware. I'm pretty sure I can't dive there for $16. BUYER BEWARE!
