RE: Help on parts export from US
I ebayed a couple parts to Canada, and other than customs forms, not too much trouble. I sent some to Spain, and it was about the same, but went on the proberbial slow boat via mail, and returned to me as undeliverable, sent back again via Fedex and finally made it after about 4 months! Not really my problem, but the buyer understantably presumed I stiffed him.
There's duty to pay on the receiving end, based on the value, and there's always the worry about forign funds may take months to clear your bank. If you get paid by Western Union, you get immediate cash, and that part in no worry. I don't do it any more. I bit too much trouble.
