Purchasing a Makita 5402NA 16 inch circular saw from the UK

Hello everyone,

I am a traditional timber frame and beam carpenter based in the UK. I regularly need to cut big beams that require a cuts up to 6 inches. However, it is proving very difficult to purchase a saw in the UK that is up to the job. The Makita 5402NA is up to the job but I am hoping if someone knows how to obtain it in the UK without having to fall victim of extortionate customs taxes from buying it from the USA. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, I have just joined here because my situation is exactly the same as you I already have the 15" M 5143r (which btw if you are not aware is readily available mail order from most good Makita suppliers in the UK) but have new better stock but which is 6" deep instead of the old 5" & is a bit heavy to be cutting twice everytime (I'm not getting any younger) :). So if you find anyone please repost & I will do like wise.
