Default Help forwarding a reamer to Estonia?

Managed to find the taper reamer for Sierra uprights from one Irish webshop, but they do not ship to Estonia.
So could some fellow builder give me a hand by receiving it at UK/Ireland address and then forward it to me? Of course I will cover all the costs plus some extra for the trouble.

Regards,
Madis

Hi Madis,
If you find a Swedish webshop that sell the same parts, I can buy it for you and send it to Estonia, it might be cheaper than from the UK.
Or if you give me the specs of the reamer, I can try to fond it here.
Do not hesitate if you want me to do so.
Good luck!

Thank you all for the feedback.
At the mean time I had a read on the super7thheaven blog and he suggested to use a 1-1/2" per foot (7.15 deg) reamer from States.
SteveH1 I will PM you when I will go the Axminister route from Joe McKenna's, thanks again for giving a hand.

What about the Axminster one you borrowed from me 3 or 4 years ago? Unsatisfied with the taper, or another set of uprights to ream? I could send you mine again (but it's lent to someone else now, too).

Also, I bought a lot of stuff from "UK only" senders via a parcel forwarding service. You get the stuff sent to their address in Barking, Essex, they bring it over with a van once or twice a week, and you get it delivered by DPD, all in ~5 days for 8 for a small package. You could look for a similar service based in Estonia...
