Re: NCAA Basketball 2021 - Elite Eight

Re: Cheapest way to ship big box of rust ?

I ship a lot of larger items and shipping on those has definately gone up.

Best bet is to just pack it up, measue dimensions, and get a weight
(hold package on bathroom scale if you have to)

Then just go online to USPS, Fedex & UPS and use their shipping
estimators to get an idea which is best.

Re: How to ship cans

Why does anyone ship one can Priority?

Why pay extra for basically the same service / delivery time?

Also on th ebubble wrap, if you tape it with painters masking tape,
it is easier for the next guy to reuse instead of having to tear off the
packing tape.

Re: Brownie

I sent the seller a message on the Brownie can.

His defense was that in the listing info, he stated "repair work" which
he obviously thinks includes paintover.

When I tried to explain the diff, he stated that the lettering and graphics were
not painted over.

I gave up after that.

Re: Another Old Union

Couple of things that work for me. I don't use acid to clean the dirt off. It isn't that hard to empty the cans of dirt and clean them with water and a toothbrush before you dip them in acid. It weakens your acid solution when you dip cans with a bunch of dirt / rust / etc that you can clean off in ...

Re: Looking for feedback regarding feedback.

I find it hilarious that many people have to have that can in 2 days.

Why are sellers charging $8.00 priority shipping and why are buyers paying it?

Remember when we sent checks and postal money orders to each other? How long did that take?

Where is the fire?

Re: Four Peaks brewery bought by Anheuser-Busch

I like how AB calls the purchased segment of their brewing "the high end"

Seems like a bad choice for a name when you tout yourself as the king of beers.

This sale just more evidence that AB got to the top thru business decisions, not superior product.
