Don't forget you'll need a 240v to 110v step down transformer

i have an address in the states to ship through, which saves some freight cost, but yep it significantly cheaper. which really kind of annoys the hell out of me! particuarly with all this talk of buy australian. We are able to produce good just as cheaply but labour and employment costs are obviously to hight to make it competitive.

crazy really, i just bought a laptop from the states $2200 inc freight and tax, exact same computer here with lower specs, nearly $6,500 now that is crazy

Actually, I missed the continuation of the thread regarding computers, I was actually interested in the extractor.

Thanks eco. I wouldn't mind seeing a photo of the finished product if it's not too much hassle.
