I had called them, and emailed, but they basically don't want to sell me one unless its via the website or thievepal.

There are a number of companies like that here - another one is PP3DP, but at least I could use my credit card with their site.
I had to ship my PP3DP 3d printer oversea's so I could buy it. I could understand if its made for export, and in a special trade zone, but they aren't. Strange how its easy to get some things here, and not others.
Still, I'm in the minority. May as well find a board manufacturer, give them the BOM, and make my own damn bus pirate, and sell in my taobao store... Its competitive enough here for volumes of about 20 units up as you're probably well aware.
I'm just griping though...
I'll eventually have a decent set of tools, despite some vendors best efforts not to sell customers product
Next purchase is a lathe for machining stuff. I've been looking at the Seig stuff for a while now, and am about to take the plunge on that.
Not really sure what I'm doing yet with all these tools, but I like to be flexible in what I can potentially do, so why not.
Also pondering a laser engraver, and some CNC stuff to complete the mad scientist lab that I intend to build myself, then I'm pretty much set to be able to fabricate anything I need for my pet projects.
