LINK to digital scale LINK to sellers eBay store and other scales
#1. I just bought a "NEW" 35LB digital postal scale ( lifetime warranty ) on e-Bay for $.94 cents / $17 total with FedEx delivery.
The kicker is the seller has 100% positive feedback - with over 14,000 sales !!!
That is amazing feedback with that many sales.
#2. In case you have not been the the post office recently the cost for mailing large items, say over 5+ lbs has gone through the roof.
I had a 9 LB box to send Priority Mail with $200 insurance and it was $23.00 at the post office !!
Screw that I'll drive it to NY for that .
So, back to the house and I went on line to UPS and opened a shipping account ( no charge ) weighed the package on the bathroom scale, loaded the info on the UPS site ( no software to load on your computer , it's all done on line) which then prints out a filled out UPS shipping label ( with a tracking number on the label ) on plain paper and charges your credit card the exact amount ( no surcharge added ) of the shipping fees. ALL you do is tape the label on the box and give it to a UPS driver OR take it to a " UPS Store" and drop it off at the counter. Very simple and very easy.
UPS total cost with $250 insurance was $12.14. I saved almost enough on that one package to pay for my new 35LB digital postage scale !!!
I just started selling on Amazon.com, ( I have been selling on eBay fo close to 10 years) so UPS is going to make life a lot easier by not having to go to the post office, I'll just give everything to the UPS driver.

Why do I carry a 45 ?
Because they don't make a 46 !
