They do open boxes regularly, and they pass each parcel through a scanner and check out the contents. If they decide to open your parcel they verify for contraband and value of the item. They check prices on ebay to compare the value of used items.

Your parcel will be inspected more likely from drug countries and if you haven't imported a lot of stuff. This is what I think : Once they've checked you imported a lot of stuff and you have no criminal record they will let your parcel through a lot quicker.

I forgot to add if the parcel is sent UPS be a freaking ware they add a hidden gouging/duty fee.

My nozzle kit I ordered in december from Mytana at 250$ USD and they shipped with UPS (I despise UPS!!!!!!x1000 times) turned out costing me around 532$ CAD.

Did I say I hate them, my ears are fuming.

We have supposedly free hospital that's because we give out all the money in our wallets. Oh we also pay for all the corruption, they need to keep dining on wine and caviar you know. Someone need to pay the bill. We are just proles anyway.

I got one of those used on ebay cheap with the 1/2" and 3/4" heads. It heats up pipe very quick. It's basically like someone took two 60w soldering irons and joined them like scissors. The heads slip on and stay with a set screw.



The ridgid ones work like the "coldfusion" brand of soldering iron. When you pass electricity through the carbon/graphite tips it gets hot. This is why the ridgid one has a huge box attached, there is a step down transformer and rectifier in there so it puts out low voltage dc(a coiuple volts) and won't electrocute you too bad if you short the ends with your body. I assume antex had the design patent first on the more sensible version so ridgid had no other choice.


As you can see the antex version is much smaller because it only relies on a heating element and 120v AC. Obviously the ridgid one will do much larger pipe but thats only because antex hasn't bothered making a larger version. After 3/4" you might as well use a torch anyway.


Propress is nifty but for longevity soldered joints are better. Propress orings will degrade if the water/antifreeze is/goes acidic. I have seen what happens when antifreeze is neglected and they have propress, it isn't pretty.


One house we plumbed when megapress was new has a 3"copper manifold on the boiler. It has 3" tees with no rework room next to eachother. The customer switched to their heating supplier for service after the warranty period. They neglected the antifreeze and several of the joints have cauliflower leaks building up. They will have to replace the combined supply/return manifold, this includes about 8 loops, the circulator flanges, and the valves. I think it was a stupid choice to press all that but megapress was new and we were trying it out, no one knew antifreeze would do that.
