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?

I'll check out the v belt supply. Ordered from Japan is still lots cheaper than 160 cad. Where did you learn math?

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.... :)

@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.

Never heard the saying. Talking about DHL they delivered a BitMain power supply to me this afternoon that I ordered Monday from China. Went through customs in Richmond BC yesterday and flew overnight to Moncton. I actually ordered it Sunday night but it was their Monday. DHL is one of the more efficient carrier and broker. Paid customs and taxes on line this morning when I saw the text. Postal carriers are slow, you can expect 40 days. I've seen items stuck at customs for 3 weeks.

Did you figure out if all there items are single items? There are a few things where it says 2 or more are required but it doesn't say if the pack contains more than 1 item.

where it says quantity needed is the amount you need to order, everything is individual

Ordered from Impex. Order got to USA in 4 days. They doubled the shipping from what they were quoting originally. Still a lot cheaper than parts from Canada.
