It’s no secret that you can find pretty much everything you need to do whatever you want on eBay. But the main issue is finding a reputable seller that you can trust. When it comes to woodworking and the tools needed to do the job, it’s critical that you find a seller of high quality tools. One thing to check for is the sellers rating. An eBay power seller is a good mark of reliability because in order to get this designation you have to be a seller on eBay for quite some time and have a good reputation.
Another thing to watch for when shopping eBay Woodworking tools the number of items sold of whatever it is you are looking for. Granted if the item has just been posted than you naturally can’t expect the count to be very high at all. But if the listing has been around for some time and you don’t see an items sold it’s not a determining factor but it may be a slight cause for concern as to the quality of the item. Nothing is worse than finding an item that you have been scouring the web for at a decent price, to finally find it for dirt cheap on eBay. As soon as you find it you look over the seller and even though you don’t see a very high rating, or a return policy the picture looks and you are press for time to get your woodworking project finished. So you whip your card out and make the purchase thinking “I’m going to be purchasing eBay woodworking tools from now”. A week goes by and your package finally arrives only to find the item you bought is dull, or dinged up and of generally low quality. You immediately race to your pc and login to eBay to file a complaint, but then you recall that the key point I will cover now is missing, so you’re screwed:
NEVER purchase eBay woodworking tools without a return policy and from a reputable seller, unless you are one of the few who are OK with the risk inherited with this unwise decision, or just plain have money you can afford to waste. These guidelines can be applied to just about any purchase on eBay but I think applying it in this case is so critical because woodworking requires a good set of tools both for your safety and for producing good quality work. Don’t settle for anything less even if you are in a rush. If you follow these guidelines, then eBay woodworking tools can still be found at a steal of a price.
