(Hi LLoyd)

I am in the UK, and want to buy a copy of Lloyd's book Ball Milling
Theory and Practice for the Amateur Pyrotechnician. Amazon UK want £68
($88) a copy!!!

So I tried several US pyro sites - pyrodirect, AFN etc. None worked,
probably because I am in the UK not the US, and their online shops are
more focussed on chemicals etc, which are a pain to ship internationally.

Anybody got any ideas which might help? Ta.

Lloyd or someone else might stick a copy in an envelope, and mail it
"First-Class Mail International", or possibly "Priority Mail International® 6-10
Business Days" for ~$25.

So sorry for posting so late to this. I've been on a barn roof for two
weeks!

Yes. Contact me by PM, and I will be glad to ship you a copy, for (say)
$15 USD beyond what the postage would cost. That covers my cost for the
copy and whatever is the postage.

Yours,
Lloyd

And Lloyd has kindly sent me a copy, arrived today. Well worth the money
(mostly exorbitant postal charges) (and the wait).


Note that US postage charges are about 5 or 6 times UK charges for the
same packet but going in the other direction. You Americans don't seem
to get good value from your postal service.


Thanks Lloyd!
