Fellow European chippers,

I'm considering ordering a bunch of Unique 4200 racks (aka original Paulson model, without the Paulson branding), as discussed in this thread. The manufacturer's price is $3.50. eI expect my price to be max 5 EUR shipped. In addition, there would be extra shipping to you (see prices below) then + possible VAT on import. However, post-covid I might again be travelling a lot and (if there is no hurry), might ship from within EU which would help.

Please state your interest in this thread (not binding), including how many you might consider buying - that will give me an idea on how many to order. Any other comments/suggestions are more than welcome!


Standard shipping prices to Europe (untracked/uninsured):
  • 0-350 g: 7 EUR
  • 350-1000 g: 13 / 18 EUR (depending on whether the package is less than or more than 7 cm thick)
  • 1001-2000 g: 23 EUR (>7 cm, which is most probably the case with that weight).
  • For packages (tracked): 27.50 EUR + 2.50 EUR/kg. Example, for 20 racks it would probably be 4 kg (37.50), for 30 racks probably 5 kg (40.00).
Notes:
  • Each rack should weigh about 135 g.
  • I could also ship FedEx (tracked), but it's a tad more expensive.
  • These racks are perfect for Paulsons, but too narrow for CPC chips!

Ironically, my CPCs are protected in shock-proof, water-proof cases, while my much fewer Paulsons are accommodated in Versa or worse aluminium cases, not requiring racks. :D

I like having mine on display, and found out I really don't like them being stuck on the edges of the Chinese ones :/ also, way too wobbly due to too much space.

There’s two different Chinese racks. The one that has “made in China” on it fit my Paulsons perfectly. The one with no writing on it is too loose.

In my case it's the opposite :ROFL: :ROFLMAO: so, at least 4 different ones!

I might be in for 20-30 racks. It depends a bit how much you can ship per box. Somtimes even within the EU shipping costs can get out of line. If it gets north of 6€ shipped to me per rack i might not be in.

Ok, for so many racks, here's the math according to the Norwegian postal service: 27.50 EUR + 2.50 EUR/kg. So, for 20 racks it would probably be 4 kg (37.50), for 30 racks probably 5 kg (40.00).

Thanks @LeGold . I'm all good, I ended up getting a briefcase type case for my cash set. Makes it easier to store them away so the wife forgets how much money I'm spending :bag: :LOL: :laugh:

I'll order enough of them (famous last words?), then we can see. And if someone wants many but there is no hurry, I can let you know every time I go to EU and/or meet someone from Germany who can help re-shipping for a better price. If I recall correctly, Germany has some of the best rates.
