Default Buying Router bits from the US from the UK

Hi All

I am considering buying some router sets and box sets from the US as i find the Prices even with shipping costs can work out cheaper than here in the UK for the 1's i am after. I was wondering if anyone here on the forum from the UK has bought their router bits from the US, and if they thought that they had got a bargain.

Cheers

Dave

I have. For many years identical tools have been much cheaper in the US than in the UK. I used to get engineering stuff from ENCO that was thoroughly worthwhile as it was half what UK suppliers charged for the same thing.

Here in Croatia, I pull stuff from the States and Canada that is simply unobtainable here otherwise. I could pull it from the UK, but the same stuff is miles cheaper in the US and Canada. OTOH, I am fortunate in having people who can bring it here.

Cheers

Peter

Thanks for the quick reply Peter i appreciate it, They do work out cheaper even with the shipping costs, "Alas i don't have anyone to bring them over here for me LOL" But i can keep wishing you never know lol.

I have found quite a few places from the links on here that will be getting an order or two from me once i am sorted after the house move,

Cheers
