    Don't know but i would order them from the states.

    I've order lots of items from the states. When you consider the exchange rates it will quite often work out less than half price even including the postage costs.

    Fishing reel £200+ in blighty £94 delivered from Good ol U S of A

    Gun sight £250 here £115 delivered from USA

    Not all spiral bits are created equal. There's some awful crap around, but I have to admit prices in the UK do seem a tad high. I've had success with cutters from Wealden Tool, though. Their spirals are here
