In my experience, this is not a realistic expectation. FedEx Smartpost has only one redeeming feature -- it's cheap for the shipper -- and their delivery estimates are about as reliable as a chocolate watch.

I've ordered a fair amount of stuff from Banggood from China and their Los Angles warehouse. I usually order Friday and I sometimes get it on the next Friday or maybe Monday, usually because they try to deliver it on Saturday and since I send it to my work no one is there.

So I guess 5 days was a little too optimistic. I've gotten stuff from China in less than 10 or so calendar days but then I once forgot about a package and it showed up 2 months later.

I'm pretty excited to check this out. I have a Christmas order coming in soon that will make this thing worth the money.

Just took delivery of my new engraver!! Only one week from order to delivery through www.jet.com. Package was in good condition and the laser was well packed. Unfortunately, I don't have any play time until Saturday.

Mine should be here next Thursday or Friday. I just realized I don't have anywhere to put it downstairs. I have a number of old XP computers to use but I guess I'm going to have to come up with something.

I couldn't resist. I got a colemeter 1000mv from amazon.

Is anyone selling the rotating jigs for these? I'd rather buy one that works than have to engineer it.

There are simple plans on a laser engraver help page on face book. I can post the name tomorrow.

You had to post this. You jinxed me. Just got an update and the new estimate is next Saturday which means Monday which means I lose a weekend.
