Has anyone ever had any experience with buying any of the factory refurbished tools that are for sale on Ebay, Amazon or any other of the tool outlets that are online.

They are alot less money than purchasing new, But I wonder if the quality is the same

Hey Ray,  in 1991 I did buy a sliding mitter saw at the Delta factory store and was refurbished and is working great.

Yes , purchased a Dewalt Biscuit joiner that was refurb with good quality

Ihave and you get what you pay for.

 

I bought a 16 gauge finish nailer as well and it works great.  You get virtually the same warranty for a lot less cost.  I have bought factory re-conditioned on many occasions without any issues whatsoever.  It's worth the "risk!"
I live near the TTI distribution center -Ryobi and Ridgid.  The have this big sale about every 3 months with reconditioned and sometimes new power tools.  I've bought a ton of both and have no complaints with the reconditioned items.  My planer went up in smoke and I took it to the local repair center.  Got it back in 2 weeks after a warranty repair and it has been fine since then.  Nailers, drills, saws, sanders, you name it.  The  items I buy appear to be new.  Also bought a Bostitch brad nailer from Amazon and as of today it has never jammed or misfired - knock on wood.

Hey Steve

Where is the TTI Distribution Center, & do they have a on-line store.

Thanks

Joe

've bought a DeWalt jig saw. It works fine, you just have to double check what comes with it. sometimes little attachments that would normally come with a brand new one might missing,but the basic working function of the too is fine.

There are those who buy the most expensive (tools or anything else) because of the myth that the more you spend the better it is.
Is the gasoline we buy today better than the gasoline we bought ten years ago?
Are the services we get from our government, local or national,  better now that we spend more on taxes?
I like to judge my purchases and spending on value, and reconditioned tools, when available and done right, generally provide more service for the dollars spent than their equivalent new counterparts...

Hey Joe,

It's near greenville, SC.  They don't have anything on the web.  Super deals.  They average a little over 60% discount from HD for the refurbished Ryobi or Ridgid tools.  The new tools are about 50% off.  Last month I picked up a Ridgid compact jigsaw, RO sander, super clamp and a 23 gauge nailer.  Also another Ryobi drill with 2 batteries and charger.  They will have another sale in June.  I usually leave with my SUV full.  It's a blast!

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
