I've heard a lot about these and am keen to try them, but I only ever see them for sale in the US.  Is there anyone in the UK who sells these?  Or does everyone else who uses them in the UK just import them from the US?  The thing with that is I thought you would get stung by customs, so it would make them pretty expensive.

If I can't buy them I might have a go at making one :)

Originally made in Austria.  Elmar can help you.

Elmar is only able to make a limited amount of flat pups per month. I believe he is currently looking at April before he will be able to deliver any.

I can make them and send to the UK, and the first class mail shipping will most likely be under $10 USD, but I have no idea what customs fees or duties might apply on the UK side.

Thanks for the info, on looking into it further I think I wouldn't get hit for customs charges but I would have to pay VAT.  I'll look into it further, I don't mind spending decent money on parts but being stung by the UK government, especially when they let the likes of Amazon, Starbucks etc off without paying tax (ooh I'm getting political) it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. :)

Hi Clark, which one would you like? My site says the shop is closed;  anyways feel free to drop me line ;-)

Austria still is in the EU and the UK more or less too ;-)    ...pssst! my mail address is flatpup@gmx.at

Gotcha! I'm in Austria, surrounded by Europe. The other country you refer to is surrounded by sea ;-)

that's why they made this sign ;-)

Eeeps!  Joke falls flat, dies without glory.

yep you'll need a pair of these make thing much clearer me thinks.lol

I think Britain will stay in the EU if they leave our pints and sausages alone... ;-)

 

Thanks Elmar, I might be in touch.

Lol @ Wayfinder :)  

Slowpaw = Nigel Farage ;-)   lolz

can't stand the man , won't be voting for Russell Brand either ... ;-)

what ever you do don't vote labour.

how can we have a prime minister who can't even chew a bacon sarnie.

I love that picture.  Look at him struggling to swallow peasant food!

I'm not voting for any of them.  I'll vote for the party that makes getting cbg parts in the UK easier and cheaper :)
