As Autonoz said, no apologies are necessary, Bill. In reality, this is Autonoz's gig, I just help out a little when I can so he doesn't have to bear it all by himself. Likewise, your help and advice is appreciated as well, no need for you to feel as though you need to butt out!Bubble wrap was just a suggestion, there are many ways to keep items from moving. I bow out of this one since suggestions are not wanted. Terry, autonoz, my apologies for stepping in here to try and help. Won't happen again.
They're going to wear out eventually, though, so it might be good to have a metal replacement available.Actually the plywood boxes are holding up well it is mostly a learning curve on the packing of the inside.
So which size box are you going to make?I will knock one out then, years ago one of my customers told me that they tested their packaging for new products by shipping samples by UPS, to themselves.
If I remember rightly ( I can't guarantee any more ,it started out @ 40 lbs.) theI think they do have a weight limit now, it used to be if it fits it ships, now I think it is 70#. Box 1 had 36# when I shipped it yesterday, probably if I poured it full of lead shot I might have made 70#.
John,As for the borescope - I have the parts for several more. So when either box comes around my way, I'll be adding a couple. I'll also try to find some way to package/protect them - at least the glass portion. How to keep the aluminum flashlight housing from getting severely dented might be a horse of a different color ;~)
