    I got my tool yesterday imported from the States to the U.K. I got a hefty custom charge but I’m still happy I got this to lace my tool set for the future :) big thick gloves is my next purchase I got safety glasses already ;) I’m going to mount it on a board and use it multi clamped to a work bench so it’s portable and not fixed to one place, I’m going to do this slowely because I want to be safe at all times

    It does a great job. I mounted mine on a piece of hardwood and screwed a strip across the front to accommodate C-clamps to stabilize the spring winder when working with mainsprings

    $240.00 from Merritt's. That what it says on the customs declaration anyway. And then he has to pay £57.63 customs duty, VAT (value added tax) and handling. Again all visible in picture #1.

    ^^^ Thank you ;) it was slightly more because of shipping total $302.65 USD plus £57.63 Pound Sterling
    give or take it was £289 Pound Sterling but I wanted one new so I didn’t mind the premium it cost in the end,it’s going to get some good use over the years ahead ;)
