A light dose of snide, combined with poor proof reading, refering to the 
time it takes China Post to get a 1 oz package to me from wherever the 
maker is in China. Seems like 20-25 days is too long. Although 10 of 
this item is probably around 3 or 4 oz. The repair will not be completed 
until that package arrives, nominally 2 weeks after the rest of the 
stuff to re-build it in a brand new box is on hand. So the machine will 
be laid up for nearly a month for a failed $2.30 part, which as it 
failed blew a $20 breakout board. Classic chain reaction.

Similar to that old saw about your tv blowing $50 worth of parts (and 
labor to replace them) while protecting a 50 cent fuse.

But in this case, I'm the one that built it, so I have to look in the 
mirror to point a finger at the guilty party. ;-)
