Re: Canada 220/240v at home (Rental Properties)
Just to throw it out there. You would probably be far better off to not bother shipping the tools over here. For what you are looking to do, you probably are talking about smaller power tools, and not large cast iron TS or 12" jointer 20" plainer.
For the cost of it. You can come here, and probably within a few weeks buy used North American tools that require no changes to the rental property. Plug in at 120v and work. Use them for the year or two, then re-sell them with little loss when you go back. No cost to hire an electrician or need to get the landlord's ok. No cost of shipping tools back and forth from OZ.
just a thought though
People are like a box of chocolates. It's hard to tell initially which ones are nuts.
