For things like wsm/ kettles, we save when we order from USA but still get gutted on shipping, plus, you would be amazed how insulated US business thinking is.
Majority of businesses just don't ship, even in this climate with our strong economy wide open!
Gas products we have different fittings so no way to save, and electrical is different here too, ours is 240 volts.
