Though it may be a bit more hassle, new may be in your price range: http://item.rakuten.co.jp/newworldnet/cm45-cf/

Shipping is about $20 I believe.

Holy Moly Andre,

I am a little rusty on my Mandarin (is Rakuten in china?) or maybe it is my Japanese I am a little rusty on?!?!?!? Is there not a way to change this to English?

Cheers,
Michael

Found it! Try this link. There will be an option on the right side of the screen this brings you to for translation to English!

Cheers,

'.jp' is a Japanese domain extension.

Does that store ship overseas?  I had a hard time finding one who would ship internationally.

The Hario Skerton pictured above has a similar adjustment mechanism, but the burrs are shaped a little differently.  Don't know how much that matters.  I played with one only briefly.  The shaft wobbles slightly, whereas the Porlex (and I'm assuming the Kyocera, as they are almost identical internally) doesn't.  Plus, that Hario is more plasticky.

I've been very happy with the Kyocera I picked up from OE, but I paid 50% more then the OP is wanting to spend and I'm not willing to sell mine.

The Porlex and Kyocera have very similar, if not identical burrs and there is a spring that maintains the spacing between the inner and outer burr when using the grinder at coarser settings that I believe is missing from the Hario.  The Kyocera works well for Espresso and Aeropress.

As for plasticity, the Kyocera has a plastic body and grounds container, but the Porlex uses a stainless steel body.  I have noticed a little static cling for the gounds in the chamber, but not like I see on my home grinder where the grounds end up flying all over the place.  

I think I remember someone saying that the Porlex body is small enough to fit inside the plunger of the Aeropress, a consideration for a traveling kit, but the Kyocera does not fit.
