Title: Buying T-molding at happcontrols
Post by: Sylentwulf on July 09, 2004, 02:37:27 pm
So I guess T-molding is one of those things that would ship BETTER via UPS?
50 Ft of T-molding, and 1 27" bezel, looks like the total is going to be $80, so roughly $30 shipping vis USPS.
Probly would have been the same via UPS, ahh well...

That's ridiculous.  Happs shipping is insane.  I don't understand why their shipping charges are so outrageous.  There are some things I would order from them, but not with $80 shipping.

$30 shipping, $80 total :)

I'm guessing it's the weight of the t-molding, and the size of the bezel. Guess I shouldvae ordered the t-molding UPS separately, then the bezel by USPS... oh well, only ordering from them once <shrug>

Price it out at t-molding.com, see if you can save some money if you ordered it separately.

50' of T-molding weighs about 3 pounds and is not very fragile.

hmm, I would have thought it was the weight that put it over, now I'm curious, guess I'll find out when the package shows up at any rate.

ok this isn't about buying t-molding from happs, but i didn't think it was worth it to make a whole new thread for it, and is about buying something from happs. has anyone ever tried the flight yoke grips available from them? does anyone know how many buttons there actually are on them if you get them with the thumb buttons? and if they would work as a star wars yoke replacement? they are located under Amusements-Joysticks.
