The original tracking number did show some Italian sounding town names but with 5 digit zip code as we have here in US. I thought that was little odd but the item did arrive in a few days unlike the typical international shipping.

    I guess he/she didn't want to reveal the real address so decided to just give it away.
    Interesting. Amazon does this a lot with wrong orders. In some cases, the return shipping cost is more than what THEY paid for the product, so they just eat it.

    So you got yourself a free tensiometer. Congrats!

    A free used tension meter which may or may not be up to calibration spec.

    Well if you have wheelsets that you are confident have proper tensioning, you could use one of those as a reference.

    Remember that a tensiometer is more for measuring relative tension in order to prevent disparities between individual spokes. Getting pinpoint tension accuracy is impossible. You want to aim for no more than plus or minus one graduation difference.
