I've been buying on eBay for many years with very few issues however the last 3 out of 4 transactions were sour even though they were "reputable" sellers. The items were listed as "new" with a generic picture, "like new" with poor quality pictures, and "used only 2 times" again with poor pictures however none were anywhere near "as described" (I had to file eBay complaints on 2 in order to get my money back).
Crazy thing is the 1 good transaction of the 4 was a Bosch 1617evs router that was being sold "as is for parts or not working" since it had been dropped (pics showed a cracked base). Price was right to use it for parts (seller said it worked but "no returns") so I took a chance and surprisingly enough it worked just fine plus it came with a bonus.....
a nearly new Whiteside 1/2" spiral flush trim bit that sells online for more than I paid for the entire set up! :smile:
