    He would like to buy an Atlas shaper from me that I saved from an estate sale. The problem is shipping costs. It weighs 300lbs and is about 25" long 18" high and 12" wide. I can break it down or put it on a pallet what ever needs to happen to get the shipping costs down. Can we as a group come up with a way to relay it to him with holiday travel or other contacts? He says he has options if it was east of the Mississippi river.
    He is a very good resource for the Early cj5 group and I would like to help him get the shaper if we can get it done at a reasonable cost (or none).
    Shapers make really nice castor shim wedges!
    Thanks for any help

    Have you looked at fastenals for shipping? I shipped a tranny and transfer case from Virginia to Washington for a very reasonable fee, and they said they do super heavy things all the time. The store I went to said they even shipped an antique tractor recently and I think the price for that was less than $500.

    I got a quote from Fastenal:


    Thank you for the opportunity to quote.
    The rate for Fastenal's store to store service from EL Cajon, CA, to Boaz, AL, is $185.
    Please notice, the origin location has changed from San Diego, CA, to El Cajon, CA, due to the San Diego branch having no access to a forklift.
    If this rate works for you, please see the attachment fill in all high lighted areas, sign, and send back to me.

    Shipping requirements:

    ALL SHIPMENTS MUST BE CRATED TO BE INSURED.

    IF YOUR SHIPMENT IS NOT CRATED, IT MUST BE STRAPPED DOWN TO A PALLET TO BE SHIPPED.

    ANY SHIPMENT NOT CRATED OR STRAPPED TO A PALLET WILL NOT BE ACCPETED BY THE STORE.


    What do you think Mike?
