Greatly appriciate for your advice, James.
I live in South Korea.
I sent a mail to Lamotte company, and I could contact the Korean distributor of Lamotte product.
But, he suggeste me that price.
I think 40 to $50 is reasonable enough, but not $$$230(209+202+TAX).
Anyway I'm wondering if i could mailorder here, and if so... Do you think it would be cheaper than korean distributor?
Thanks again and Merry Christmas to everyone.
