Waste Nothing

That is a raw deal mate . UPS ? THis looks typical of them and Canada Post actually . Why packages are not marked with a FRAGILE sticker is beyond my thinking .

I'm not sure the "fragile" stickers help much around here, but the best technique I found is using 1x2" sticks to reinforce the box. Others have also used lengths of PVC pipe. Most of the shippers charge by dimensional weight anyway, so there is no additional mailing cost to adding wood to the box.

I waited years to get my hands on a model like this, and they are no longer made...so I am not a happy man.

That stinks. Why would they even deliver it without a giant apology letter? They should buy you a brand new one.

This really sucks...saw the deal and thought you had stole this one......yup, 1" by 2" stringers really help lengthwise. Hope you can recover your $ -- at least.
