Why is it that Europe gets some really neat tools/accessories. Everytime I look up European tool sites I find something I really could use and want but it is not marketed over here. Has anyone found a way to get them over here? I can't find and tool site which will ship international.

Some examples:


Paslode magazine extension, cool.


Not sure if this available here.




Paslode positive placement gun. I have only two questions, how much and I'll take it.



I know its been posted before but I really want one.

I've got the kapex set up on a sawstop ... schweeet. I know awhile back that the sawstop was out of production, don't know for how long. It's nice having 9' on both sides of the saw.:thumbup:

I don't think you guys have
looked at those European Union
standards lately.
You know that funny looking
"CE" stamp thing?
You don't remember hearing about
them getting stuck with a bunch
of lead base baby chew toys. :no::whistling

Europeans are interested in quality and technology and will pay for it.

Some European manufacturers will allow there name to be used on down graded (quality - wise) items for the price-oriented U.S. market. Some will not do it, but the good tools still find there way around low buck U.S. sellers/sellers.

When is the last time you saw a Mercedes cab in the U.S? They are very common in Germany with many, many miles on them that look new and have great performance even though they may have 200,000 to 500,000 miles on them. It is due to the strict auto inspection even if they might not release your car until you buy new tires, have a new front end and fix the rust on the body.
