they're as common as real-horse poo in Germany, what you need is a german intermediary to help out with postage...(http://shop.ebay.de/i.html?_trkparms=65%253A12%257C66%253A2%257C39%253A1%257C72%253A3345&rt=nc&_nkw=cybertool+41&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_sop=15&_sc=1)
My favorite SAK store sells them for £60 which is a nice price if you ask me, but shipping them to the UK will get you very close to the £70 you mentioned...
I hadn't thought of Germany. I've bought from this site before, I can't remember what the postage was like but I don't remember it being silly.http://www.toolshop.de/product_info.php?products_id=1370&XTCsid=826b96c62cc0cada29ca117aedd83729
You are very welcome Towser, I'm glad you got something sorted out and you're happy with it. BTW white scales are very classy looking IMO.
