I have sent plenty of parcels from my shop to Sweden before?


Hm, not to me, I think.

Yes it works fine.

The sparks can be a little short lived if the turnings are thin.

It is the destroyer of tooling though (as is most titanium)

I've never bought off them, but they seem fine.

I don't know, but it's always a good idea to 'shop around'.

Consider shipping too, since it could make a local product with a higher per-unit price more affordable overall.

Yes, consider the shipping cost! Very lightweight stuff from China comes cheaply by ChinaPost and arrives in your country for post to you by the cheapest method. Packets may take a week to two weeks.

Bigger or heavier stuff the Chinese send by airfreight, and that is very expensive. Could easily end up as Hemis £10 transport £100.

Also once it looks like a business packet then your customs and border control like to send you a bill for the import duty and the sales tax -which the carrier usually pays then charges to you (with handling charges) before they deliver the item.

I've ordered tools from supremepyro (Ting Luo) in the past and was very pleased.

The shipping can be a bit expensive but still reasonable if you buy lots at once.

Now... I want to order again from her but haven't received a reply after 3 days and I'm getting worried wether she still sells the stuff or not. (Oh no! Where am I going to get my cheapy tools now?!)

If anybody bought something from her very recently please let me know.

btw: I never had to pay extra for customs or border control.

EDIT: Received a mail :)
She's still in bussiness but her computer crashed and she needs to reinstall so she can't handle any orders atm.

hey all, i want to get a selection of salts for testing as oxidizers.

I'm looking for sulphate's, benzonates and any others someone has laying around and can spare some. I'm only looking for small amounts to do some testing.

so let me know if someone can knock together a small assortment

Have not looked into this fully, but my RHS magazine pointed out that Dithane fungacide has been made illegal & that the recomended replacement is based on Copper Oxychloride.

Don't know if it's too diluted or adulterated, but might be worth a look...
