    Default Scroll Saw Blades

    Hi All
    Quick question has anyone in Australia purchased blades recently from Mike's Workshop in the USA?
    Just trying to get an idea of;
    (a) how the service is?
    (b) how long they take to get here?
    (c) how much the postage is?
    I know that prices depend on the value of the dollar but I am just tryin to get an idea of how much it would cost.
    I recently looked into purchasing blades from a Brisbane supplier and I think $15 flat rate postage from Brisbane to the Gold Coast is a bit steep, the last blades I purchased came from Adilade and they only charged $13.50 for postage on the same amount of blades. (and who said everything is cheaper in Queensland)

    Hope someone can offer some advice on Mike's Workshop or sugest another Ausie supplier I can use.
    Cheers Richard

    G'Day Richard,
    I've used Harris Traders out of Murray Bridge after a recommendation from a fellow forum member...
    The info I've attached is a little old but should help.
    My experience with Helen was excellent.

    The postage from Harris is just the price an ordinary envelope.

    I've just bought blades from Hobbytools.com.au. Huge range, delivery about three days for about ten bucks. Look for 'Zona jewellers saw blades'
