    So mr swinds.

    anyone who can't claim the vat back on your argument would be looking at spending 165 inc shipping

    So plus my collets and mount at lets say another 60 - 80.. giving your route a price tag of 225...

    i would say take better care of your equipment mate.

    I would say it's irrelevant since (at the time of writing) you can get a proper water cooled 2.2kW spindle intended for use on a CNC router with a full set of collets and VFD for about 250.
    That will get you more power, lower runout therefore higher accuracy, bigger range of cutter diameter (0-13mm), longevity, much higher rigidity and lower noise.
    To me any of one of those advantages (except noise) is enough to make up for spending 25 more.

    Lot of inflated postage is actually fee avoidance , as a seller pay ebay 10% of final value but not on postage costs.

    Had a few Chinese items, including 3040 mill, shipped from some fulfillment warehouse in Portsmouth, guessing they may be held in bond and pay the duty when they sell, important to note I didn`t get charged any extra duty and items arrived within few days.
