Re: JCWhitney shipping?
I like their low shipping charges for Canadian orders. They ship to us parcel post, and this saves me a bundle. Not just the shipping itself is cheaper, but even more important, our post office only charges $5.00 for handling the taxes involved. If you ship UPS or FEDEX, the "brokerage" fee is outrageous.
They have some wacky products in their catalogue, but they also have brand name stuff. I found I can call them and ask for the manufacturor of a part listed and they will quote it on the phone. Yes, they are slow, but if you know that ahead of time and can live with it, then go for it if they have the best price. Once you buy from them, they will send out catalogues with coupons from time to time that really sweeten the deal.
Ever been to Warshowsky's in Chicago? I believe they are the same company.
