    It was wrapped in bubble pack, but the box could/should have been larger. There was at most an inch extra space around the camera. If the seller would have done that, this damage might have been avoided.

    That sucks.

    I remember shipping a Commodore SX-64 computer to someone, from MA. to OH. I believe.

    I double-boxed it, bubble wrapped it.. I've never packaged anything to that extreme before. The item weighed a lot (it was the first mass-produced and available 'portable' computer') an it arrived with a broken floppy drive.
    Sadly. I should have kept that (I love C64s).

    That pain, of having something you love.. only to be destroyed by the post office.. makes my pain seem meaningless.

    ps- I thought that they were making Deardorffs again? In very small numbers? Am I crazy?

    I packed a Mac Plus and sent it to my daughter. Packed it with the precursor to bubble wrap... Popcorn. I had a course in design from Jay Baldwin, the author of a recently published book on Bucky Fuller (his teacher). He had us package three eggs with a brick. The test was to toss it to the ground from the second story balcony. The guy who used popcorn in a shoebox was the only one in the class who had no broken eggs. He did it twice, just to show that it was no accident. I embedded the eggs in a can of Crisco (vegetable oil shortening). One of my eggs broke. Don't ever pack a Deardorff in Crisco!
