Customs xray machine status?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if these machines are going to be installed before Christmas. I read somewhere where there was some construction observed near the outgoing checkpoint at Swampy. Just wondering what the latest status is on bringing in fun toys for the bedroom. 

Vitamins

Toothpaste

Various  facial products

Clothing items

All not for resale

Also in USA you can travel with guns and knives in check in luggage.  What are the rules for say a hand sickle?  Was thinking some good steel may be appreciated in the village. I am wondering if they are to heavy as probably  made for wheat  or barley.  250-310 grams

Seriously,  I could check these 3 sickles in my check in bag no problems.  Can check in guns as easy as skis.  Just show a gun is unloaded  and in a gun case.  Many hunters and competitors travel  with long guns. 

My GF did tell me cant  take on plane in Thailand  but I dont see why not.

If you want to get arrested go ahead. You can not take a realistic toy gun or a knife or gaffa tape or a bicycle chain on a commercial flight. As for guns: I would hope you would be arrested if one was found in your luggage. As for the scythes: I can not see any justification for having them in a city. Everyone of the items on your list are available in Thailand. In short I suggest the introduction of XRay machines is to stop people like you bringing in the types of dangerous items you refer to. I do hope they are successful.  Good luck.

You guys are so brainwashed that you deplore freedom to carry farm tools?  These are antiques but I thought perhaps good quality steel.  2 have far superior handles to the ones I've seen used in Thailand and one is very well made with forged parts.  I collect old tools  and appreciate fine craftmanship.   Maybe this is not appreciated by most people.
