A week ago I got a new Starrett 1 1/4- 2 1/8 " telescoping gage to replace one missing in my set. $19.00 to the door.

I like Ebay as a buyer. I've heard a lot of bad as a seller..

Summmer is always the best time to snag deals, when people go to vacation and aren't online to bid up the prices.

Haven't done it for a few years, but it is quite awful as a seller. I used to sell stuff on there. The selling fees kept getting more and more ridiculous, and then the last straw was when they made it impossible for sellers to leave negative feedback on bad buyers. That was when I quit selling, I heard the fees have only gone up since.

That and it seems 95% of the people that were buying my stuff couldn't read; they'd ask dumb questions that were clearly addressed in the item description, or would try to pay me upon pickup with a check when I explicitly stated I would accept cash only.

Why does one need to buy the McMaster Carr catalogs? Don't they give them away as the Big Blue Book thieves do?
