We would need 10 people to get the better price, but the shipping would likely go up a smidge.  And then once the shipment came in we would have to ship to the different locations which might add about $30 per unit.  

I'd guess we'll probably end up with a net price delivered around $750-$800 (saving about $150 per unit)

Great find!

Did some google search. In this Taiwanese site, it was mentioned there are different models: one with  thermocouple, one with adjustable, variable drum rotation rate, and perforated vs non-perforated drum.

One question, can the drum be taken apart for cleaning?

I already have a thermocouple (data logger) and the variable speed of the drum seems to me not very important as long as it is fast enough.

Maybe it could be arranged a group buying but shipping individually directly from Taiwan? 650 + 120 = $770

Any idea what the import duty is likely to be?  US$30-$40?

We should confirm that the vendor to includes the duty and any other fees in the $120 shipping.

Would be nice to see 1 first. If 11 think they want one they could share the risk to buy one to have it checked out if it's junk, group put it on ebay. If it's good it would just add a little to each of the 10 for the difference. Or they might send 1 at full price and give a little break on the lot. There's also a chance a slight change might be suggested once you play with one,that they could accommodate
