    Re: Michael Palmer double nucs

    If you get screwy shipping figures, give us a call. Sometimes there are breakpoints on weight that we can help navigate. We don't understand them all, nor does our Fedex rep.

    Re: Michael Palmer double nucs

    The double nucs are back in stock at Betterbee, and we are taking steps to assure continued availability. We hate back-orders more than you do.
