Thanks for the find! I ordered one early this morning as well and requested the parcel shipping price from OH to me it was $14. So it's still way cheaper then the normal price and cheaper even then the 50a spa panel I was going to buy.

My brother lives in Bowling Green... wonder how far away they are from him?

Shippinng to Syracuse was under $14 and very fast - about 3 days and the box was on my doorstep. I'd do business with them again in a heartbeat.

That's weird because I ordered on March 8th. Haven't received anything but that my order was automatically processed. I emailed them to let them know to apply the appropriate shipping to my order no. No reponse. No amount has been applied to my card. I've also emailed them request an update but no response. I'm kind of at a loss.

I ordered and got a confirmation but they never quoted my shipping in the e-mail. I got it in about 3 days and they charged 14.00 for shipping. That's fair, this thing is a beast. I probably would have spent this much just on the wire so it is a great find.

Wow. I paid $77 for that from a different supplier (friesen electronics). Good find.

My basement & equipment won't be ready for e-brewing for months, but I almost feel like I should buy this now while the getting is good...S&H might even be a tad lower as I'm only in SW Ohio

That was my thought too. I'm no where near ready for e-brewing, but I've heard these cords are hard to come by and given the price, I couldn't pass it up. $25 for this and be able to use existing 220 outlet, or go buy and install spa panel or GFCI breaker in the main panel for three times the cost and tons more effort? Easy decision....

Can someone who has purchased one of these please post a pic of the plug end so I can see if my 220 outlet is good as is or if I need to rewire.

I have no camera, but it fits a standard four prong US dryer outlet rated for 30 amps - look for NEMA 14-30 in wikipedia to see the configuration - one ground pin at the top, two vertical blades at the side, and an upside-down looking L at the bottom. If you have a 3 prong dryer outlet (like I do) it will not fit.

I'm running a new circuit for this - unfortunately it's going to take almost 50 feet of 10/3 to reach my intended brewing location.
