Order part from Japan

Anyone order parts directly from Japan? I was looking at this site https://en.impex-jp.com/ and it appears the parts are a lot cheaper than Canada. For instance, the v belt for a 1332 in Canada is 160 Cad but only 29 us from impex. Has anyone tried this?

Well, the shipping charge for a .5kg pkg is close to $20.
Do the math.
Might want to try V belt supply.

Ordering from overseas can save some money, I have done it in the past ... just realize its on a "slow boat from China" , you'll have a wait....

You know they have cargo planes now right, and it's from Japan.

@Coby,


Yeah, I used to work for DHL.


Ordering from within the states arrives in a couple days. Ordering from overseas gets here in a couple weeks usually. To me that is a " slow boat from China " LOL

That is a common general phrase, I am surprised you are not familiar with it, it means takes a long time.
