Indeed!  Futurlec always send me padded enveloppes which don't even
come through customs here (NL).

I once made the mistake of ordering too much in one order from Futurlec,
which then came in a box which *was* charged VAT and duties.  Since then,
I just break up large orders.

Can't you get pots from Banzai Electronics?  They are in Berlin as well
and might be able to give you a good deal.
