    Been waiting for the AAG a while now.. but $44.54 for shipping a bit of plastic seems a bit…..

    I fully agree. I would like to buy the AAG as well as a pair of 12″ guide rods. The total value would be $28.- but the cheapest shipping option I get is $ 82.80 while according to the USPS shipping calculator, that option would cost $40.95 and the cheapest option would be First Class Package International for just $22.50

    If I would opt for just the AAG, it could be shipped as First Class Mail Mail International Large Envelop for just $8.95

    Clay or Kyle, can you offer any of these alternative shipping options? the ones that are offered now are ridiculous for these low cost items.

    While unrelated to theshipping costs, aren’t the 12″ rods standard with the ball joint arms? I bought the 14″ and believe they are only 2″ longer then the rods that came with my upgrade kit.

    Hey guys,

    There’s something funky going on with the international shipping calculator on our website. We can ship an Advanced Alignment Guide via USPS Priority Mail International in a Small Flat Rate Box for $29.95. The 12″ Guide Rods won’t fit in that box so the shipping will be slightly higher but definitely not as high as you were quoted on the site. Please email me your shipping address: kyle@wickededgeusa.com. I’ll set up your order and send you an invoice via PayPal.

    -Kyle

    I’ve had this problem in the past, too. I gave WE (Kyle) a call and the shipping costs came out much lower.

    Ok, that explains it, I bought the gen 3 vice upgrade kit that came with 10″, thinking they were 12″ and thought I upgraded to 14″ but obviously ordered and received 12″. Sorry about that.

    So, the pins do not hold it in place, it flops backwards. I really am disappointed with this aspect of the guide

    Did you try with or without a knife in the clamp?

    Seems to me that it would rest against the knife.
