Where to buy Pocketwrench II?
« on: March 08, 2016, 07:41:51 PM »
After been reading a bit on this forum I have come to the conclusion I need also a Pocketwrench II.

I am living in Europe so I am looking for an affordable source. The company selling from Luxembourg takes 44€ for shipping to my country, which I am considering a pure robbery for something that fits inside of an envelope.

I am also open for orders from outside of Europe if the price of the shipping is acceptable.

While I want a real PW, I also found this copy: http://www.dx.com/p/edcge...teel-wrench-silver-302605

I bet the copy is of less quality, but does anyone have both? I am interested in how they compare.

I bought one of them direct from the manufacturer (Burketec) about 2 years ago, at that time they were selling direct on EBay. I can't remember exactly how much it cost to get delivered to the UK but it was not expensive, only a few dollars extra. I can't imagine it would cost any more for them to post it to Finland.

The Pocketwrench is just one of the most useful tools that I have.

It looks like I will get the Chrome-Vanadium pocketwrench ii in a very affordable way from Luxembourg. I asked them if they would be able to ship it a bit cheaper and they offered to send it for 4 EUR.

Where is this Luxembourg supplier? Does it have a web address?

If I remember correctly it was this shop. www.rc-machines.com/en/index

I got my CV one from a friend who bought some stuff there. But it seems they don't have them anymore.

Okay, never mind, thanks. Lee Valley Tools have the Burtech one (I think) for only $15.95 (see: http://www.leevalley.com/...at=1,70373,70375&ap=1) , but only offered me these shipping options (I did ask if they could do it cheaper, they said no):

   *Small Parcel Surface Mail         8-12 Weeks                               $14.24
   *Small Parcel Air Mail                2-4 Weeks                                 $22.81
   *Xpresspost                              8-10 Business Days                   $51.85
  *UPS Express                           5-6 Days to Major Centers         $21.54

So that would make it at least $30.19 (£23.25), though at least there shouldn't be any import tax to pay on that, as it's less than $30 for the items. I'm almost tempted to just got for it, though it does seem outrageous for the postage.

Does anyone know why the http://www.pocketwrenchtool.com/ is down? It's been like that for weeks, but am sure it was up when I looked  a few months ago

You're in the UK, give these guys a call or send them an email about it.

They used to stock the PW2 but there aren't currently available online.

I bought one from US (PW site) but recently I bought another one for a friend from MTO, with a classified. You might try this too.

Careful, I got stung on a $28 spinning top earlier this week. Ended up having to cough up an extra £12 to get it delivered. If the sender doesn't tick the "gift" box on the form, it looks like they are charging for everything at the moment.

Ouch! One of the problems is that if there is any tax charge, you also have to pay around an £8 fixed fee on top of that. Interestingly I ordered two quite expensive alox SAKs from Swiss Bianco not that long ago and they came through with nothing to pay! I did have to pay some tax for my Leatherman Knifeless Fuse, but that was expected and Leatherman's are (relatively) cheap in the USA.

BTW this is the official line on things:

Looks like anything less than £15 (or £34 if  gift) is meant to VAT-free on import in theory - which $15.95 is (currently anyway!)

I bought a bunch for the cars and disaster kit. I bought the originals from Lee Valley instead of the copies (EDC Gear) even though the copies in Amazon were cheaper. I wasn't sure if they would work. Worth it in my opinion to give a bit to the original Mfgr.
