Fair price and ways to find a teletype

I would imagine a teletype would be way over USPS' maximum weight limit

Something happened with USPS 2 years ago or so where prices just went
through the roof.  Even on small stuff it was ridiculous, at least, to
Canada.  I've been reluctant to use them since.

Well for big things shipping I think it is about the same for the last few
It is the US mail that is strange ... $3.00* for 3 weeks or $60 for
overnight. I expect still cheaper shipping than when new. Note you still
need a truck to get from the shippers warehouse.
