Does anybody know what the shipping costs are for US destinations? I went pretty far through the checkout process but didn't see a shipping quote.

I just ordered one. They listed 3200 Yen ($29.45 USD) as the price with 0 yen for taxes and 0 yen for shipping. The automated confirmation email also has 3200 Yen as the total.

Sounds good, right? Alas, when I told them I was paying with my Visa card, they didn't actually ask for the credit card number. Somehow I suspect my slide rule isn't actually on the way... Sad Perhaps I will get another email from a human asking me to pay for the slide rule I just ordered.

For a guide from 2012:
Circular Slide Rule No.300 1piece × 2600yen = 2600yen

Shipping and handling charges to UK, 1800yen

Total amount 4400yen
