    Any hand-pump fans out there lurking? The GBP has fallen a point or so in recent days so you can knock a couple of dollars off the unit price of each :beer:

    Keep in mind once you break over the number 4 mark you'll legally be up for duty + GST.

    Prices posted above include shipping to BNE.


    Understood that GST may apply, though we could ask the supplier to accept multiple transactions from multiple customers and remain under the threshold.

    Unfortunately as the total amount would exceed the threshold you would still be up for import duty and GST.

    "One parcel for multiple people
    If a parcel (one consignment) addressed to you contains goods or packages for other people (such as your friends or relatives) and the parcel has a declared or assessed value of more than AUD1000, you will need to lodge an Import Declaration. Duty, taxes and charges, where applicable, are payable for all the goods in that parcel.
    Customs law does not permit a parcel to be split or broken down into separate items for assessment, even when the items were imported for other people."

    Thanks for your advice, but respectfully that isn't relevant if the transactions and consignments are actually separate - which could be negotiated with the vendor of the purchase was significant enough to them.

    Also the totals posted above are inclusive of freight - the value of the goods is 100 pounds per unit so ~$163ea today so we'd need at least 7 units to qualify.

    Of course while there are currently only 2 interested members it's not even close to a concern at present :)

    I'm in, but unless we can get to 5, it might not be worth it?

    Postage from the UK is expensive, it's making up almost 50% of the cost!

    Is there no sea freight options that potentially that could take months, but be fairly cheap?
    If you've gone without one for years, surely a couple of months wait for it to get here wouldn't hurt

    I have looked on and off, haven't seen anything near this price in this condition and with water jacket. Personally I would lrefer to purchase through a reputable company than eBay, but for the right deal I wouldn't rule it out.

    WEAL do you know the user name or still have a link?

    Mardoo put me onto a guy but he stopped responding to my messages and think he's no longer interested in shipping world wide.

    Was in Lancashire is all I can remember he was always on there, sells quite a few. You will also need to get the check valve and sparkler.
    I have been buying a bit of stuff from the UK because the pound is down, mainly fishing gear, and I bought a new pole a month ago where the parcel was 2M long and it only cost 50 pounds to ship with UPS Saver.
    I think sea freight now is a thing of the past unless your getting something from China by post.

    I am in Sydney every 3-6 months reliably so if you were willing to wait a while I could bring it via the airport.
