    Customs can and do open creates.

    They look inside and say THIS LOOKS LIKE IT'S WORTH 20000 that will be 4000 please if you want your machine.

    It all looks a bit gloom and doom really doesnt it?? Whilst i am still undecided on the Strong machine, can anyone recommend another machine to consider? Was thinking around 5000 mark, would be used to cut MDF 6, 12 and 18mm. Preferably with a 1200 x 1200mm working area.

    Try and get a SH unit, you will be able to try before you buy.

    I would avoid a home brew unless you took someone experienced to look it over for you. It would be worth paying for the service to avoid paying down the line

    Fair enough - they didn't for my bearings though which were pretty expensive. 5000 is on a different scale entirely though...

    Jonathan the people you do not want to argue with are Customs & Vat, they ignore the EU courts something UK governments are unwilling to do.
