The slider was not too bad, it was UPS that was pricey, wanting $107 for brokerage and taxes. I talked to them and negotiated it down to $60. Still a rip off, though the 5% taxes were inevitable.

Oh, cry me a river. Us folks in BC who also have to pay another 7% feel so sad for you.

You do understand that there are a group of folks that don't understand how anyone could get a nice new shiny piece of equipment, unused, and already be looking at how to do a mod on it.

I was only crying about the ridiculous brokerage charges, not the taxes.

Tell me you have never modded a shiny new piece of gear.

I'm going to bump this meandering thread that I started. I looked on Overton's website today and saw a "Springfield Marine Adjustable Height Pedestal" for $89.99. I thought these things cost $300. What am I missing?

There is a Springfield Wavemaster 16" pedestal for $389.99 but its description doesn't match what I've read in this thread; this one seems to be for a chair. Could someone who has the pneumatic Springfield pedestal give me the model number? Thanks.

The cheaper one has no top plate and is only 21" tall, might not go low enough either.

Almost had a coronary episode! The $89 is model 73363 and looks much lighter duty.

Thanks. When I saw the $89 model I looked under "Similar Items"; the 3-stage air-powered pedestal didn't show up, hence my confusion.

I can never find anything on the Internet.

I purchased the Springfield pedestal from Overtons recently. I am quite pleased with it. Retailmenot.com provided a 10 percent savings code. Try "FAT5OFF" when you order online.
