All About Me
What everyone should know about me
I was born 37 years ago in Germany, studied there and obtained a masters degree in chemistry from the University of Dusseldorf. I have been a chemist and engineer with a fortune 500 company for the last 14 years and moved to St Paul, MN, 6 years ago.
Things I sell
Things I buy
Things I collect
I started my meter selling business 3 years ago with a focus on meters for orchid growers. I since have expanded it to other meters for many hobby and professional application.
Ebay emphasizes that you should pay using Paypal or any other electronic payment service. I realize that this does not work for everybody, I have heard from many customers that they still wish to pay by money order or check. I respect this wish, please contact me by email.
I normally ship all meters using the US postal service. My post office closes at 6:00 pm central time, so if you pay by paypal by 5:00 pm your order will ship the same day.
I ship worldwide, the shipping cost should be displayed for all countries. If you buy multiple items I will combine them for shipping. International shipments will arrive in 4-10 days.
Special Country Instructions:
Italy - shipping time can not be predicted. It can take 7 days or 6 weeks. Last year I shipped two identical packages to a customer in Rome, one arrived after 10 days, the second after 6 weeks. I can not change that!
South Africa, Nigeria - A lot of mail is stolen, I have to use DHL or FEDEX for these countries, additional shipping cost is $50.
I want you to be happy with all the meters you buy from me. If a meter does not work for your purpose you can return it within 14 days. (If you were on vacation while the meter arrived, or you did not get to try it right away or there was any other good reason: I might extend the 14 days a bit, just talk to me, I want happy customers).
All my meters come with a 1 year warranty. In the very rare event that a meter fails I will send you a replacement and a prepaid return envelope for the defective meter. You should have the replacement in 1-5 days.
Compare this to the warranty many sellers overseas provide: They require you to send the meter back, which can take 1-2 weeks shipping time, then examine it for a week, and then send you an replacement. As a result you might wait 5-6 week for the replacement meter.
I use all the meters I sell myself, feel free to contact me by email with any question about the meter or measurement problems.
