Dear all, I hope that this post is not Off-Topic in this group. I am a French hobbyist (scale helicopters), and, after carefull research, I concluded that a Sherline mill would be the best choice for my own use. I had an excellent contact with Sherline US, passed an order for a 5410 mill with accessories, which has been quickly delivered at the Paris airport (Roissy), waiting for the customs. There, my problems started. The transporter said they needed a CE "declaration of conformity". OK, so I self certified it. But the customs opened the package, and did not found any CE sticker. So now, I risk a fine, and my mill is blocked 10 km away from me :-(. I have no solution yet. Does anyone here has experience with this kind of problem ? I know that these mills are imported in Sweden, Austria and Italy, so, obviously they must comply with CE regulations, and someone somewhere should have the needed documents. Could someone give me pointers on how to make this wonderful tool pass through red-tape molasse ?
Many thanks, Michel Gouget
