    Default ARE SMITHY MACHINES USED / REBUILT?

    On another thread, a guy says Smithy imports used /rebuilt machines. I couldn't find anything on their website about it. When I called, I sort of got a run-around and no answer. What gives?

    Is the tax rate different between used and new when importing or exporting? Could be a way around the system.

    tax rate is indeed different.
    also smithy add their own controls in the US, so that may change the classification.

    or that shipment may have just been a repair load.

    in any case the poster is know for trying to cut down any machine that isnt the one he owns.

    I don't see how he is " cutting " anyone down either- he just posted a document from US Customs.
    The real question is why Smithy won't clear this up.
