I think what is happening on ebay is ridiculous. In some cases full retail and then some. In some cases it is the other way around. This is my personal opinion. Opinions vary. I would hope that if someone here had something to sell... They would try to sell it here first (out of ebay). And for a reasonable price.
Most of the people I know here (locally) avoid ebay like the "plague" (Now).
However... Ebay is good for buyer protection when dealing with long distances and or buyer protection.
Anyway... I have access to several local surplus stores here. I would be willing to help anyone out that is looking for a specific item if they specify. IE: Motors, parts, etc...
For example... I just picked up an Ametek motor from this store for $20 I charged the guy $25 in fuel to pick it up (it is a distance from here). Plus shipping is under $67. Most of the motors alone are selling for over $70 to $130 on ebay plus shipping? What is wrong with this picture? We need to be helping each other... Not shooting everyone in the foot.
Just a thought...
Whats that noise!? Uh Oh!...
