  • JIMs PID KITS FOR SILVIA

    Im considering buying one of Jims PID kits for my Miss Silvia.
    Just a general query for other Coffee Snobs who have bought one from Jim.
    Once one has paid the money to Jim, are there any other (Government) charges this end, or does the kit simply turn up in the mail?
    Just want to know how much it will cost me all up.
    Jim doesnt think there are any charges this end but isnt quite sure.
    Some feedback from other purchasers would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Alan.

    Hi Alan,

    Duty and GST are not applied unless your purchase exceeds $1k...You will be fine.

      Hi Alan,

      Ive purchased a fair few things from eBay and many of them are more expensive than the PID kit from Jim and have yet to be hit with a government charge so I doubt you will. If I remember, the cost of the item has to exceed $1000 before you get taxed.


      Cheers,
      Tim

        Hi Alan

        Just a quick note:
        I did not pay any extra other than the unit and post costs paid to Jim.
        Good time to buy with the high AU$.
        Totally satisfied with the unit, the service from Jim, the method of payment, and the clear instructions (Do print them out), and the simplicity of assembly, AND the results.

        Only the screw at the bottom of the back of Silvia caused any problem but it is exposed so can be loosened a bit from below.

        (though as you will see from below I have been unfaithful to her)

          Hi Grimsby
          I also got a Jims kit. Although I have used and installed PID units myself I found having all the wires precut & of the correct length and colour coded, plus the brackets and bits and pieces made it all much easier than frigging around myself. It just came in the mail and no extra Govt charges.
          Go for it !
          Plus it looks great and attracts questions :-)

            My kit just arrived in the mail, it was clear from the freight docket on the front what it contained, no duty or gst was charged.

            The kit is brilliant, easily installed (in my case by my 16 yo son in under 3 hours). Just allow some time to print the instructions out - I think they came to 30 pages.

              I have a review of Jims kit on my website. The instructions with the kit are excellent, and as has been stated, the kit is of very high quality. All the wires are included and have professionally installed connectors, and overall, it is indeed easy to install with basic hand tools.

                Thanks to all for your responses and comments.
                It seems that my concerns about extra charges this end are unfounded.

                Cheers,
                Alan.

                  Jims kit is great and easy to install. With the high AUD its the time to buy! buy! buy! great value. Its under $1000 so no gst/duty to pay.

                    I cannot praise Jim enough - 2 pid kits later. His support and the kits themselves are invaluable assets to our community here - nothing is overlooked, even the extra screw you will need etc. The quality of the parts and attention to detail is just amazing.

                        After much deliberation and procrastination, I have finally ordered a SD3C with steam control PID kit from Jim. I want all the control I can get!
                        Should receive it in about a month as Jim has plenty of orders to fill.
                        Cant wait! Then Miss Silvia will really sing.
                        Thanks for all the encouragement.

                        Cheers,
                        Alan
