Well I've had plenty of experience with buying from China and I can honestly say I've had very little to complain about and I'm 1000's of pound in front compared to buying in EU so that said I'm up for it D.C.
I will need some soon so let me know. If not then I don't mind being the guinea pig.!!
See that makes it a lot better because if things go pear shaped I can now blame Jazz for leading me astray lol
Splendid, that answers the question WWJJD... and they would both try it!
Count me in for 3 units D.C.
Worst case there will be a few of us to give negative feedback.
Before lots folks get too excited it needs to be pointed out that the £56 delivered is not what they will actually cost.?
There will be 20% VAT on top plus a handling Fee from the shipping company anywhere between £10-20 for the whole shipment. So I reckon they will workout around £68-70 mark.
Still cheaper than from China thru Ebay or Other Uk sources but just not has cheap as many maybe where thinking.???
I'm still game thou.!!
I knew you would see the light
So we can expect them to cost at most 20% more plus £10 divided by the whole shipment, or if you're lucky it could be less. For example I bought a spindle from aliexpress for $493 (not a normal spindle) and didn't get charged as the seller decided to put an exceptionally low value on the shipment!
There will of course be postage to pay to distribute them once they get here, but they are not very large or heavy so it won't be much.
Jazz has kindly offered to place the order so nobody has to hand over their cash to dodgy new bloke. :)
I was budgeting £60 a drive plus postage for my drives from cnc4you so this makes sense for me, the leadshine digital drives are vastly superior to the ones I was going to get for almost the same amount of money.
I might be teaching my granny to suck eggs here but...
I took part in group buy on another forum, the guy running it set up a publicly readable Google Docs spreadsheet showing what everyone wanted and how much it would cost. It worked really well as a way of organizing everyone (there were about 20 purchasers in the end) and keeping track of who'd paid / when things had been shipped etc. Might be worth doing the same here now that there's a growing number of us wanting drives.

Whilst it is of course nice to have the latest technology, if your machine will run perfectly well with the cheaper drivers I see no reason not to get those. I've had 8 of them and not had any problems.
