Another thing that you should keep in mind is that since 9/11 security has been really tight, that could create some problems.

Just out of curiosity: Do US customs care what people are exporting stuff for? Most governments try to encourage exports, not tax it, and only restrict export of cultural relics etc.?

Isn't it the NZ customs you should prepare for?

Well on the other hand things are not what they seem. In the EU Schengen union, that with the common immigration and customs control, systematic border checks between member countries is prohibited. So what they do now, at least between Denmark and Germany, is to "coincidentally" make normal road checks .. the German police do the old job of the Danish, and the Danes help the Germans somewhere else ... ha ha, what a joke.

PS: Galvanized steel pipe? Really want to lug around with that? How about just the fittings, and an NPT thread cutter maybe?

Im more worried about the whole 9/11 tightened security thing with galv pipe in my suitcase that looks like a bomb on an x-ray machine. My suitcase can be up to 20kgs so thats a fair bit. I will get loads of Galv fittings as well, maybe just the odd PVC one like 4" end caps that cost $40NZD here which is $30USD...Yes end caps cost me about $30USD :shock:

Thread cutter....Aren't they quite expensive? The reason I want the pipe is because it costs so much over here. I not looking at huge amounts of it, just maybe like 1 1/4" and 1" pipe nothing too extreme.

Hi,

Ok I see abt the prices ... same here, by the way.

I don't know what a cutter would cost. Remember that the American NPT pipe threads might be different from the ones you have @ home.

I know PVC sch 40 fittings aren't different as my dad's hardware store stocks American Sch 40 fittings and they work fine with our BSP fittings.
