Default looking to get a scroll saw in Mexico

I retired to Mexico 4 years ago and when I did I sold all my tools before I left.
Now I've been here 4 years and really miss scrolling. Even though the DeWalt tools are made here in Mexico I can not for some reason or another purchase a DeWalt scroll saw here.
I'm looking for a 20 or 21 inch with stand if possible, if anyone out there is willing to help me get one to Mexico I would really appreciate it. I tried Amazone.com they have several but won't ship to Mexico.

I knew a woodworker on another forum who had retired from LA and moved South to the Baja in Mexico. He too was having this problem but had friends in Southern California who would buy what he needed and then bring them to him on a visit or meet him at the border with it.

I live in North Carolina, so I'm sorry but I can't be of any help for you. Do you have any friends in the US that you might ask?

On the forum at Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts is a fellow scroller named Jim Mex. He is British but lives in Mexico. I believe he could advise.

Thank you everybody for your kind response, I'm happy to report I finally found a company that would sell the scroll saw and ship it to me, the draw back being they charged me 45 dollars for the shipping (that's great) but the duty is 212 dollars that brings this saw price over 800 dollars but its a small price to pay for a great hobby. Hope I'll never have to fix it as there is no-one doing the warranty work here.
