Say the wrong thing or try to be humorous and you could be in for a bad time. Although in some cases you could receive a free rectal exam.

I don't want to sound like I'm bashing you and you are entitled to your opinion but I have to state the boogeyman syndrome again. I want to dissipate the fear and tension that some may experience.

There's only an imaginary line between the countries and for the most part only a river or a cut line in forests. We both have Mcdonalds, Subway restaurants, Walmart, Burger King and guess what we buy all our stuff from China We all buy oil from the East. Last but not least we are humans.

Last time I went to the States after 9/11 only a couple years ago I forgot to renew my passport and it was expired by one day! The US officer told me it was expired and let me in anyway and wished us a good day. It's just like the bad reviews on an item sold online. The review leaves a bad image for many and sticks in your head while hundreds of others enjoy the product and don't bother posting a good review.


I did an offroad trip a long time ago and we were stopped by the border patrol about an hour in. The K-9 put his paws on the door and sniffed, after their questioning the officers were commenting on the truck checking out the lift and tires because it looked cool and to see a modified Toyota intending to go play on the rocks.

As being serious crossing the border its common sense. Do what you are told, reply what they need to know, be respectful, don't joke or fool around and forget the negative attitude. Yes sir, no sir and they'll let you in.

Its true, it is an imaginary line, but around here (in Michigan) the three border crossings, Detroit/Windsor, Port Huron/Sarnia, and Soo Saint Marie Michigan/Ontario are all bridges or tunnel and the "imaginary" line is very real and very protected. Just last Thursday, the news was reporting a one hour delay at the Blue Water bridge in Port Huron and at least 30 minutes at the Detroit Bridge. Those delays are not unusual and they are usually due to thorough inspection or questioning by either customs or immigration officers.


"We both have Mcdonalds, Subway restaurants, Walmart, Burger King and guess what we buy all our stuff from China We all buy oil from the East. Last but not least we are humans."


That is absolutely true, but we are still in two different countries even though we share many traits, and (almost!) share a common language.


Years ago, we used to cross the border with little more than answering "where were you born" or "how long were you in Canada?" Today you need special I.D. if you cross daily for work, or an enhanced drivers license, or a passport, and you are still subject to random searches at the border. I don't know where your crossing points are, but there is nothing casual about it in this area.



"As being serious crossing the border its common sense. Do what you are told, reply what they need to know, be respectful, don't joke or fool around and forget the negative attitude. Yes sir, no sir and they'll let you in"


That is always the best advice.

If you want to discuss this further that would be cool with me, if you were to PM me or open a thread for that, but the original thread was to try to sell a piece of equipment and I would like to get back to that. Merci.

No, both soldering machines are still available.



Due to various issues, I am just getting back to this thread and to selling off tools and material due to the fact that I am still trying to retire.


I have a 48" Rigid pipe wrench for sale as well as 2- 36 Rigid wrenches . Also soil pipe cutters, 4-wheel pipe cutters (up to 4" pipe), large size Jet-Swets and various other tools. I also have quite a few old catalogues and reference literature for plumbing, steam and hydronic heating.



As for the Canadian/U.S. issue, if someone from Canada wants to buy something, and since I am in Southeast Michigan, I would do a face to face transaction somewhere on the US side of the border. Most of my stuff is in a storage unit less than 30 minutes from the bridge or tunnel.
