Overlockers are pretty hefty in weight but you know what. If you arranged something with Belfie to get one from her local store & post it too you, you would still come out of it with a over locker for no more then $200 I reakon. I would think you would pay no more then $30 in postage.
Mrs Bexie - normally I'd love to try sort something out, but I'm going to Tassie on Tues & I am flat chat until then (that's why FIL picked up my machine for me... cos it's not actually my nearest store). For what it's worth though, it weights 7.8kg. Did the Aldi guy say if they could transfer it up there?
Oh really??? No more than $30?! I was thinking it would be like $200!!
This is what australia post's website says:
Parcel dimensions for a box If the parcel is box shaped, then its length (its longest dimension) must not exceed 105cm. The girth is measured around all the other dimensions and must not exceed 140cm. E.g. a parcel measuring 50cm long x 30cm high x 40cm wide has a girth of 140cm (i.e. 30 + 40 + 30 + 40 = 140).
So maybe it could be posted? Is the box that big? And based on 7kgs it would only be $36.95 postage!
Good luck finding one MrsB!! I hope you get one....
I am not at my local ALDI until Thursday (when the specials start ) but will make sure I check to see if they have any left although in my area I doubt it, there are lots of elderley people around here who sew I'm sure and I think they would all be gone....
my SIL's are in Melbourne ATM and so is my MIL! They are going to Ferntree gully tomorrow which is right near Brandon Park and so they are going to go check the 3-4 stores around there to see if they can find one. They are from Canberra but are visiting DH's grandpa... we are going to Canberra in 2 weeks so if they get one, we can bring it back with us!!!
is it just too early & my brain isn't working? I don't see where it's 1cm over?
As for SIL's shopping in Melbourne, i'm pretty sure I didn't see any at the Ringwood store if that helps (that's my local). The folks at the Brandon Park store told my MIL that the 4 (now 3 less the one i bought) had been there for at least 6 weeks and wouldn't be going anytime soon (which is why they were marked down). I have for you!!!!
