Hi guys,

Greetings from chilly Finland.

I was wondering if you could recommend any good place in OZ where I could get my hands on on some nice OZ burrs?
Preferably an experienced already exporting business, but any will do.

I have a friend in Brisbane that can take care of shipping over if needed.

Yes, I know that they are available in UK, but have you guys seen the dem poms are charging for them!! And to be honest, the quality we see here is far from great.

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Mikko

Miko you might try Brads Burls in Sydney. www.bradsburls.com.au. Brad is a good bloke, he sends burl all over the world and he always has some beautiful stock. Good luck, tell him I sent you. Len.
