I am not too sure if i should post this under "Brewing Equipment" or "Pointy end".
Anyway, I am planning to ship my beloved VBM DS lever to Hong Kong.
Does anyone have any experience with shipping a machine oversea?
I would like to know what is the best way to pack it so it would safely arrive.
Furthermore, does any one know how to drain the boiler? or is it necessary? I would like it to be as light as possible, due to the shipping cost is by KG .

Thanks,
Fred *;D
