I am also sending via PayPal. I added 3% but I don't know why. Seems like it should be no charge. I am not buying goods or services, simply reimbursing. Don't know why they gave you such a hard time before but oh well...

Yea i dont know whats up with paypal, this all started when i was doing regular buys for another club, people would reimburse me via paypal. one day i get a letter from paypal instruction me to stop using the Gift option or they would cancel my account.

I had a lawyer review paypals terms of service and what i was doing was well within their TOS. They drafted a letter to paypal, which they blew off. "stop doing it or your account will be closed".

i didnt want to waste anymore resources fighting it so we just decided to use money orders, cash or paypal with the fees paid.

Default IF/WHEN You Do This Again

Is there any way you can notify me when?? I'm ramping up my homebrewing for the Winter, and also buying a grain mill (recommendations anyone?) Or should I just monitor the Forum. I'm in the Providence Area, if any lurkers out there are interested in a Group Buy. But someone will have to find a person with a NCM Account so we can place an order. Methinks that an alliance with a Boston or Eastern CT Group buy is more realistic, but you never know till you bring it up. Manchester CT is not that far from PVD.

Monster Mill.

i dont plan on doing an other buy until spring unless the demand is there.

you never know, i didnt expect this one to close up until late winter. check in on the group buy forum for the latest buy information.

I have the MM3 with 1.5" rollers. to be honest i think the two rollers would probably be fine. dont see a need for the bigger 2" rollers either.

Ive put may hundreds of pounds of grain through mine with no trouble.

i would get the 1/2" shaft option if i were to buy another one.

i have the 3/8" shaft and after much use its slightly out of true, most likely because i hang a heavy drill off of it. doesnt affect function at all.

I would also like the 1/2" so the drill can have better bite. the 3/8" shaft has some very small flats milled, i would go for the 1/2" and ask monster to mill larger flats so there is no chance of the drill slipping on the shaft.
