TBS-Aachen for Proxxon tools in UK and greater Europe.

Recommended Posts

There has been a trickle of thread traffic regarding this company and I, along with others, have been very pleased with their prices and service. Having just received my latest delivery from them I would like to use this experience to further spotlight this excellent company.

 

Order placed on the afternoon of Sunday 19th January.

Order received 1115 Wednesday 22nd January.

Postage and packing € 12.95/ £ 10.60

 

Using Amazon UK as a comparison I saved £ 30.11 buy buying at Euro rates on the order total of £142.18 ex Amazon. I have disregarded postage costs in this comparison.

 

TBS- Aachen stock many other brands but my experience has been solely with Proxxon products.

 

I would be interested to hear the views of other users of this company and particularly how they are viewed by German users.

 

Mike.

They've been great for me. Excellent documentation and communication, excellent packaging, cheapest prices in Europe for Proxxon, fast & secure delivery by DHL, very reasonable postage rates. What more could you ask?

 

But that's me in the UK -- not Germany, where the delivery prices are of course lower and, I note, sometimes included in the price.

 

Interestingly TBS Aachen also sell through Amazon and their prices on Amazon UK are considerably higher than if bought direct through their website.

I allways use Proxxon up in Dunstable, and the price includes delivery.

On Monday I ordered a Proxxon DS460 scroll saw £350.40 and it should arrive today or tomorrow.

And yes, It`s a great company.

Todays price for your DS460 from TBS is € 309.00 or £ 253.00 !

 

Postage and packing would be € 12.90 or £ 10.57. Delivery is good, see my earlier post.

 

Thus the saving for buying from TBS is a staggering £ 84.50 ! Vat is included, there are no hidden charges.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
