Not to be a stick in the mud, but I ordered a steam plant from them on the 18th of May.   The listing said it was expected to ship before 27th May, I am still waiting!  I check everyday and the shipping date has incremented by one day every time.  It would be possible for me to cancel the order and get a refund but I am stubborn and will hang on for as long as it takes...

 I'm going to teach those Chinese a lesson in good service!

Hi Belli,
I know what you mean about random delivery dates from China. That said, I've had some brushless motors etc from Banggood and they've generally been OK(ish)!I was just fascinated to see a traditional governor commercially at that sort of size %)

You could go direct to the supplier, he advertises regularly on F bay.

Greetings from this side of the pond -

I have been doing business with Jin for about 5 years now. 
What has happened is that he is wholesaling his stuff all over the place. 
He also has a number of outlets on Ebay as well. 

Just look at the hand holding the engine. You can see the same pic from
multiple places. 

To get the best service, look at the seller information and check "see other items" or "go to store" 
You will either see his main store of that of the wholesaler.

To see the REAL Store - google MICROCOSM-ENGINE   
His organization of the website leaves a little to be desired.But there is a LOT of stuff there. 

That is where you should buy from. 
(in my humble opinion - of course)
