Yes,well. I bought a couple of Runbaken magnetos from a guy in Oz.I paid a good price for them,well he thought it was good !!!
the problem was that as it was insured and tracked post,the p&p was quite expensive,and he put the total price,including p&p on the customs declaration form.Of course our friends at Border Force seized on that figure and Duty and VAT me for another £84.00. i have appealed but I doubt if I can overcome ingrained bureaucracy.
