Everyone is looking for a bargain and that s fine, but places like Amazon are driving local businesses out of business. Do you feel comfortable with that?

I see this just the opposite way: local businesses are driving me to Amazon. Driving to a store to find that they are out of stock or don’t sell what I want/need (and go to another store, and maybe another)? Hearing they can order it for me; it’ll take two weeks and I’ll need to drive back to the store again? Asking employees a question only to find out they are clueless, or worse, give me wrong information? Needing to complete my shopping by 6 pm weekdays or noon on Saturday?

Or, gee, since I have to do my own research to answer my questions, and then I can order it from Amazon late at night and have it within a few days… the decision is easy.

Amazon Warehouse deals are sold as used but most of the time are not actually used. For example, someone buys something and realizes it is the wrong size or whatever then returns it, or the packaging is damaged in the warehouse. Amazon sells it as “used”. You get a discount, minus the manufacturer warranty. As stated in the OP, you are taking some risk. Read the OP.

or from another perspective:

1) It’s a forty-five minute drive to civilization, and another fifteen to shopping central, which is, generally, limited to the big box offerings. That

2) Many of the items you buy from Amazon are listings from folks like you and me. We pay a percentage to list our wares.

3) It would defy reason to say I must give way to another business, local or distant, in the name of someone’s opinion of fairness to that other business. Certainly, other businesses are not going to forego a sale out of concern for me. That’s just the way capitalism works. The other way is the way Bernie works.

I bought an edge sander that uses 6” x 80” belts which I researched before buying the sander so I wouldn’t be surprised, they average about $13 – $15 each. I found several “used” two packs on Amazon for ~$5/pack and the boxes were clearly handled quite a bit but the belts themselves were brand new and have performed well for me.

I support local to a point. They have to provide fair pricing, in stock items, and i will pay extra for knowledge. That said, I don’t consider the big box stores to be local, and since they have driven out many of the small stores prior to Amazon, I am really just driving them out which is fine by me. I try to go to Ace when I need actual hardware as it is at least locally owned.

Yeah, the milling is a little rough and they’re obviously going to need to be flattened and honed, but they seem like they’ll be capable users, ‘specially for 7 bucks (although one of mine has a blade that was inserted in to the handle a little crooked – guess I sent off the wrong set to Combo ;) )

Thanks, Rick. I have two bigger collectors, and bought this for my lawn vac system experiment [using a Super Dust Deputy Cyclone]. When not in use as a lawn and garden vac, this sits near my miter. I hated it for the fact it acts more like a dust pump than a collector. At five bucks and no shipping, I can afford to see if it improves with this bag.

I’m upgrading to gain another half horse, since the experiment (pine cone vacuuming) went well, but the increased power would improve the efficiency of the system. When I get the new collector, I’ll pass this to my buddy. It will feel better knowing it knocks out more than the thirty micron joke the system came with, and I didn’t go broke making it better for the next user.
