Your item was delivered in NETHERLANDS at 1:06 pm on August 10, 2018.

At my home on August 14.

Because the customs have estimated that the value of the package was 400 euros, I unfortunately had to pay 105.45 euros extra import duties.

(Chris, perhaps indicate that the value of the metal parts is only $ 75 for subsequent shipments ?

Im sorry about the import duties I hadnt realized this would be an issue. I will put the value of raw pieces next time to keep this down.

Hello

 

I'm also looking to complete an AR2 in Amsterdam. I got the bearings and stepper online packages just fine, but the other parts are proving a little harder to find. I think most of the electrical stuff I'll be able to find on Ali Express, but the metal bits from McMaster Carr are harder to find. Does anyone know an equivalent of McMaster Carr that ships to Europe? If you have tips for finding the electrical gear over here that's welcome too! Thanks

David

 

p.s. Harry - how did your build work out?

Hi guys!

I'm from Belgium (next to the Netherlands) and also looking to build the AR2. But the problem are indeed the import duties, taxes and somewhat the shipping of the items. Anybody found some good resources in Europe already? That would be a huge cost saving I guess.
