If you are bringing in something made in the USA then locate the "Made
in USA" badges and show them to any interested customs agents. There
are no duties on US made goods. If the unit was not primarily assembled
in the US then show them a reciept showing how much you paid for it, and
the age, and I doubt there would be any duty on it.
Al, do you recall how much John B had to do to get the machines he went
and retrieved for you from Nova Scotia? I don't think there was any
issue, but he may have crossed and just lucked out.
