Default Shipping/Handling from

I'm sure most of you get drill bits, taps and dies from Victor Machinery - Metalworking tools and supplies and have noticed the expensive shipping (usually at least $14 for tiny package of drill bits) Well, I needed a few things and just put an order in with Victornet and it was already shipped, so I looked on Amazon.

Victornet runs a store front on Amazon and shipping is more realistic at around $8 or $9. I added several items to the cart to see if shipping would raise, but it did not. Man I could have saved a bunch of money if I knew this earlier.

And don't even get me started on why a company would use UPS or FedEx and charge inflated shipping when almost all items I get from there could go SFRB for $7. Makes absolutely no sense.... And I can have it delivered to my PO Box which is much more secure than putting something on the porch or shipping to my wife's work and bothering her.

It's money in their pocket, that's why they do it.
A company pays way less for s&h than us regular people do.
I'm alright Jack. Keep your hands off my stack.

I order many items through Amazon Prime or eBay with free S&H. These same items are sold on the merchants sites Plus S&H. Not all items are free S&H but many are! You really have to look.
