I purchased this rare Hario halogen beam heater, and then the necessary step down transformer, from someone who briefly used it during a siphon competition in Japan.

Turns out, I used it twice before pretty much giving up on siphon coffee altogether.  It's just been sitting around doing nothing.

I have the original boxes and there is also an extra bulb.   This is a rare item, available from only 1 site I see for about $500.  The transformer was another $50 or so.

I would like to move it and have aggressively priced both pieces together - $275, inclusive of shipping in the US.  Both items are in very good, working condition - sold as is with some scuffing on the heater plate.  

Here is a link to the actual model in action (in Japanese):   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_T0n00LPNw

Evan,
I watched the video but the thing I am not clear on is there a surface to set the pot on or must the pot be suspended above the base like the Hario pots are? My vac pots are flat bottomed and are designed to sit on a stove top, there is no way to suspend  them. I like vac pots but rarely use them anymore. Thanks

I use a hario TCA set up so it is suspended, as the assembly fits nicely around the burner. However, I see no reason why one can't set a pot directly on top of it. There is a glass surface to place it on, and the bulb is under the glass. It's essentially just a uber cool hot plate with an appealing red glow that gets transmitted through the vac pot assembly.

I should, and will, post a pic of the burner from above.

Thanks.
