    Well I figured the meat I sous vide is vacuum sealed and the pla objects are "sous vide" inside a vacuum seal bag as well - I am hoping no residues will go through the vacuum seal bags and that I don't do both at the same time (well hopefully anyway there isn't much articles on annealing via waterbath except for Justin's article)

    It was a better option then using our one and only oven which would be a higher possibility of contamination.

    Ah. Yes.

    I run into the same thing in ebay - vic seller but drop shipped. I barely ever order timely things from either nowdays, I use amazon for that as at least the timeframes are representative.

    lol well whatever it is; from my experience it’s always within the week from order when you choose au warehouse.

    not too fussed on exact location as long as it later quick.

    well shut my mouth... order arrived today. just a little over 2 weeks for delivery. bought some rubber duckies, got a free skr board and tft screen for free! :p

    still waiting for the bltouch, even though i bought and paid for them at the same time.

    im really keen on trying the tft50 and to see whether it will work for me as an all in one screen solution for the btt board and octopi.

    Depends on the courier company and State. I believe Startrack are still using CV for all of their orders while Toll and maybe TNT are getting real signature (In WA at least).

    Not getting a real signature is a real issue for the couriers, if someone disputes a delivery they are wrecked.
