    Anyone know of a UK supplier of palladium products.I just received some lithium palladium solution from Bostick & Sullivan in the US. There was VAT added by customs and a £4 charge for the post office to administer the customs duty, totallling about 20% of the original purchase price!
    I know palladium is expensive but hopefully there is a cheaper way.
    Many thanks

    I don't know of anywhere John but I suspect that it would cost more here anyway. The usual low demand, high supply cost problem. I would also be interested if anyone knows of a UK (or European?) source for pt/pl.

    The UK import duties and 'handling' charges are a killer. My recent camera purchase from the US had £304 slapped on it. They don't miss a trick these days.
