Thank you Harry. Aliexpress is a good way to find CNC parts as well as 3D printer parts and for even laser engravers. One thing to be aware of is, the vast majority of the parts come from China, and when ordering from them you effectively become the importer, which mean you may have to pay customs when you order arrives in the U.S. (or which ever country you reside in) One other thing I learned, I made an order right at the beginning of week long holiday. (Golden Week I believe it was called.) As it is a significant celebration for them, pretty much all business is shutdown during that week.

Finally, if you do order, make sure you closely look over your received products, as the way they package products isn't always as good as we have come to expect. My order had some shipping damage, which after a little work was only cosmetic. I chose not to return the product, as I would have been responsible for additional shipping costs, and it would have taken another 3-4 weeks to get the replacement products.

I have never successfully purchased an item from there . Twice I ordered from different sellers,and a month later I get the same email ,
It has been 30 days and your order cannot be fulfilled, and a refund has been issued ?

Funny, I ordered a fly fishing reel off eBay once and wasn't charged any import fees. The reel cost one cent but $16.00 S&H. And it's a good reel.

I am a regular buyer from both Ebay and Alixpress and have never had to pay import duties. My latest purchase, received yesterday was this small (4,3/4" x 3" x 1") AM/FM/SW
MP3 player, record radio or external input, 10 presets etc. and it sounds great! It cost $A25.00 delivered and arrived within two weeks.

Edit: I forgot to mention that it was complete with a Lithium battery and USB cable for charging.

The vast majority of orders the import dues tend to not be an issue. However, it does happen. A friend ordered a 3D printer from China. It came by ship, and he would have had a large import fee if he accepted it. He ended up sending it back, and bought one from a U.S. supplier. It is just something to keep in mind when ordering direct from China.

Normally if a similar item is manufactured in the receiving country duty is payable.

That make sense Harry! Probably explains why individual components typically don't have fees, but complete machines do. Thanks!
