RE: AO-40 spreadsheet



Better yet, if you have a friend in Germany or Europe, send them the money
and have them buy it and mail it to you.  If the total price is cheaper,
this might be the way to go.  Please bear in mind US Customs too.  I don't
know if it is considered duty free or not.  After all this is weighed out,
maybe that is why there is a 30-40% markup.

Sadly, it looks like those of us in the U.S. have to pay about a 30-40%
markup to buy Kuhne products through SSB Electronics, rather than buying
directly.

Frustrating...they look like really well-made products at good prices,
until the markup.
