Welcome to these Chinese Ebay, land of the $1105 Mendel
Ebay may be king in the US and the rest of the world, but in China, it's taobao.com.
Thought it would be intersting to see how RepRap is going in China, so I did a search for RepRap. They have 1 person selling cast parts for $265, and a full mendel kit, using what looks like knock off Gen3 electronics for $1105.
You can go crusing for stuff in the reprap search translated to English via google here.
Considering how little competiton is going on over there at the moment I can't beleive the prices are so good. One thing that was amusing, no pp3p Up! in their Ebay yet. :)
I have been trying to figure out how to list parts from the US on there for the last hour, how fun would be be to sell RAMPS boards and Prusa Menel Parts into THAT market :)
