Wow, thats gotta be hard.  I can't believe they would want to be that
way to hobbiests.  Just don't see what they gain by smashing them.  Good
luck in the future of finding NST's.  If it weren't so much for
shipping, i'd say i'd help you, but seeing how i'm in the US, it would
be horribly expensive.

Hi Matthew,

No I don't need a passport to get them from France as they are in Tenn.
some of the local sign shops are smashing the insulators on the used
ones to
prevent reuse.  Thus it's getting hard to get the larger NSTs from shops
without GFI.  The last time I went used NST shopping they had a 40x48
of all types of non-GFI NSTs with smashed terminals.  Luckily that trip
netted me a 15/60 and a 12/60 new in the box that were in a canceled
box headed for the scrapyard.
