That's a helluva a deal on warm sh!te. Better than you'd get locally. Anyone wanna go in on a group buy for warm sh!te?

The interwebs has proved it...you really can get ANYTHING in China and they'll even deliver.

10,000 Pieces a week, they must have 500 workers all working 5 days/week, sounds like good working conditions for China.

It doesn't really look like sh!te, but maybe once it is screwed in it will prove to be a piece of sh!te

Depends whether curry had been recently eaten.  Those curry burners can get 50 pieces out in 15 seconds or less.

As someone who's had to source equipment for work from Alibaba i have to say it awesome, Sure you get engrish but you also get flexablity. All the vendors I've contacted there are willing to answer all my questions, Send samples and make changes all with a MOQ of 50, The price can't be beaten and honestly as long as your not trying to find bottom of the barrel pricing the quality is just as good as what youd pay double or more for locally.

They key is to be clear about what you want, The spec's you want it in and the quantity you want it in. Once you communicate that to them (Be prepared for Skype chats and calls) I have found all the decently priced vendors to go out of their way to find/make what your after




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

All comment's I make are my own personal opinion and do not in any way, shape or form reflect the views of current or former employers unless specifically stated
