Hello, I have been woodworking off and on over ten years, firemedic by trade. However I wish I could do this everyday. Thanks and hope to learn from all. I am from enterprise, al.

welcome... I think most of us wish we could do this all day everyday too, but then it would be a job.

Hello Canada, I am a retired Engineer, living in Ireland, and have been a woodworker all my adult life. I bought my first hand tools, a square and a small plane, in 1957, both of which I still have and still use.
My wife and I visit our daughter and her family in Toronto usually twice a year, she has an old house and there is plenty to do so I have set up a small workshop in her basement. Each visit I add something, a chop saw is next on my list. I also buy some small items to bring home to Ireland, Lee Valley on King St. has become my favourite shop. I have bought one item, batteries for my cordless drill, mail order from the USA, and was surprised when FedEx asked for so much Canadian Customs duty. Now I am trying to find out in advance what the duty will be. I have gone on line to Canadian Customs, it seems the duty should be about 7 %, I can't remember exactly what I had to pay last time, but I am sure it was a lot more. Can anyone help me on this? is the duty added on top of the shipping charges? this would push the duty up.
The items I hope to order are from Rockler, they don't seem to have any outlets north of the border. I am hoping to get a flexible 4 inch hose to clean the floor in my shop, the one that goes from 3ft to 12ft and back. I tried a few stores in Toronto but no one stocks it.
Any help with the above will be much appreciated.
Jim.
