I left a message on Alibaba and this guy won't leave me alone now. Emails everyday. Maybe that's good customer service or....? This is his last message:
Hi Daniel,
My dear brother, how are you ?
This is Bill Smith, did you check my last email ?
Regarding this screw capper, CIF New York Port is USD 1,200
We will ship the screw capper to New York Port for you and then you go to New York Port to pick up the machine.
Is everything is clear to you ?
Will you need this screw capper very urgently ?
Please advise !
Waiting for your reply.
Thank you.
Warmest regards.
Bill Smith

They are trying to reel you in! So the shipping cost more than the capper?

Yup and I got another "My dear Brother" again this morning. I am not surprised on the shipping fee from over seas. That's why they always want you to buy an entire container load when possible. That's what I do when purchasing Australian juice.

I love how all the Chinese, Indians, Pakistani's, etc have all American names. Really, Bill Smith......... At least he isn't Peggy.........

I like that idea Dan, PI can buy a container full and pass along the savings. We can all afford to buy one then.

At the $300 price I would love one for at home.Nobody wants left over screw cap bottles, so they should be easy to collect. I would switch over in a heartbeat.

Maybe we can get Oprah to do a capper giveaway for all the hardworking moderators at WineMakingTalk.com

With my luck she would give us all a.......Porta-Crapper

I unsubscribed to Alibaba. I started getting a bunch of emails from them also. Next email from my Dear Brother and I'll be blocking him.
