View Full Version : Importing Shopbot Desktop into the UK

08-06-2015, 03:45 PM
I'm considering starting a new business, making wooden homewares on a CNC mill.

Has anyone here recently imported a Shopbot Desktop into the UK?
What did you pay for shipping, VAT, import duties? Any other hidden costs?

Are there are other comparable European brands you'd recommend instead of the Shopbot?
I'd rather go for pre-assembled than DIY/kit build...

Any other advice is much appreciated!

i really think you could do better than a shop bot for their price on a DIY build (or so i thought when i looked at their website 6 months ago)

admittedly the shop bot i worked on was an old model running on ball bearings for the rails ... on a hard cut you could see one of the wheels lift off the carriage :S eeek
