Wanted acme punch in Europe

Post by skomdra » 09 Oct 2013, 21:31

Hi TVP friends,
can you point me where to buy acme punch in europe and I would really appreciate if anyone would sell me the used one for less then 700$. Thank you :) (I can already hear Paul how I don't need it, everyone should use the paperless, etc... well, I need it! :) )

Try here, it's a little more expensive but perhaps they can help:

Well, at least you are wise enough to stay with the acme holes. :mrgreen:

This is good advise, D.T, thank you :) This german shop looks little outdated though, is it safe? Where is that, really? It looks south of Stuttgart, 1 hour driving - I could ask my friends in Ludwigsburg to go and check. Yes, Paul, good old acme :)

No idea. I've never been there or had any reason to purchase items from ToonBase , but they are in my list of Animation Suppliers because sometimes I have online students in Europe who need to know where to purchase their animation supplies and it is not feasible for them to order from the U.S. because the shipping cost and import tax is prohibitively high.

I wrote them, so I will report if I find any usable information for the forum! Thank you again, and in general, your list is quite usable, I checked.

it looks like the same item than the "excalibur" acme model from lightfootltd.com (499 $)
