I'm fitting dro to my milling machine. I ordered the bits from Banggood after doing research . I received one scale last week. The delivery time on the other bits? 27th April! Apparently they send different parts of the same order by different methods.

Banggood ar not a supplier they are just a web shopfront for many suppliers so you have no doubt bought items from more than one hence the different delivery. Add in new Year & Virus problems and who knows when your items will turn up but you got them cheap..

I wouldn't bet too much on anything arriving from China in the coming month/s. Coronavirus is getting pretty crazy over there.

I ordered 2 toolholders from China 2nd Feb. Gave 4th March as delivery. But they turned up last week, which was a surprise.

O well , they could turn up sooner then. The parts were all from the same seller but maybe that doesn't mean anything.

Probably only had the one item in stock. Needed to reorder the others from Wuhan.

I would be very wary about ordering anything from China at the moment. With the shutdown of large areas due to the virus and restrictions on flights it could be a bit of a lottery. I have a couple of small items that were ordered a month or so ago and I don't expect to see them any time soon. However, my slight inconvenience is of no matter compared to the struggles to contain the virus. The whole world could soon be in the grip of this virus and it seems to target old people like myself and probably many on this forum, so we should all take care.

My recent ebay purchases from China don't seem to have been affected, maybe I have been lucky.
