    Hi

    I was considering buying a mpcnc kit.

    1: To give something back to the developer.

    2: time effort and specification checking.

    But is there anyone on here that’s from the UK and got hit with import tax? Shipping is already a fortune and I can’t take a £80 import hit also.

    Thanks

    Well maybe it is different for UK, but when I import parts for my printrbot to Belgium, I get something as 50% import tax. You pay those when you get your stuff from the counter. That is a real pain in the ass.

    Ryan, maybe you should have someone assemble kits in Europe, and sell them over there, but I don’t know if it is worth the hassle.
