E Bay finds, and milwaukee jig saw
Was wondering if anyone here has scored any deals off Ebay? I have gotten a cordless Makita Drywall gun, a Campbell Housfeld framing nailer, a case for my Milwaukee right angle drill, and just now I got an old Milwaukee 6256 Jig saw.(39 dollars)
AS for the jig saw, it is an older model, not many bells and whistles. Old style hex key blade change, 3.8 Amps, no case, no orbital action, but it does have a counterbalance, and it is a Milwaukee, so I figure it should outlast me… Anyone ever work with one of these? It is a used tool, What should I look out for?
I bought a Milwaukee SDS rotary hammer for $55.00 a few years ago. It was in great shape, and works perfectly.
I thought I got a decent deal on my 18V circ saw ($46 to my door) but you have me trumped.

i get... 20-30 boxes a month from my ebay purchases...
friday... i got 16 packs 5 of 8" irwin recip saw blades (metal cutting even stainless... i forgot what the tooth count was) so 80 blades for right at $30... they'd listed it as 16 blades vs 16 packs of blades....
last year i got a complete set of 6 cobble stone concrete stamps/pads for $12... they had em listed as rubber floor mats...
got a german (forgot the brand) new $1200 shower faucet set for $100
Last year I bought a pair of Milwaukee shears brand new in an unopened box for $104 plus $15 shipping. These sell for $179 at Lowe's. I also bought a Hilti DX36M powder actuated fastening tool for $182 plus $20 shipping. It was in almost new condition and was complete with all the accessories.
Got a 7" hitachi grinder for $30 a couple weeks ago, works great. Lets see, what's another recent score. . . Well, it's a couple years ago, but my $40 bostich N80C coil framing nailer was a good one.
Ebay is great for some things, but I see a lot of deals other places on the internet too. Heavy Duty tools has some great deals, for one.

I got a rotating laser with reader (500 - 700 at Lowes a few years back) for 50$. It was almost new.
