Best place to buy used circular saws

People choose to buy used power tools for many different reasons. For once, they’re much cheaper, and you’re much more likely to find a good deal on used tools. Brand new tools, on the other hand, are usually fixed in terms of how much they cost. Of course, there are discounts sometimes, but they are rare and hard to find. But if you have a lot of experience of using circular saw and other types of tools, it shouldn’t be hard for you to choose very nice power tool that will last much longer than brand new tools of the same price range. If you are a beginner though, i would advise to avoid getting used circular saw. You don’t have enough experience to figure it out on your own, so either do research, or ask for advice. I’d advise to at least read this tutorial on choosing mini circular saw.

 And at last, we’ve arrived to the topic – where can you buy used tools, online or offline? There are many places that sell them, but most of them are not trustworthy or reliable. When you think of buying used stuff, first place that comes to mind is obviously eBay. They’re focused on that segment, so they try to turn themselves into perfect marketplace. But that doesn’t mean they are flawless. eBay has many flaws, but the one that bothers me the most is shipping. All sellers make shipping policies individually, which means that you rarely get free shipping, and even if you do, it usually takes longer than Amazon.

 Amazon, on the other hand, offers free shipping on most circular and other types of saw, which is very convenient. They do offer some selection of used power tools, but i wouldn’t count on it. If you look for it closely, you should be able to find good deal, but i don’t think it’s worth the effort. Amazon is much better at selling brand new tools, so buying used circular saw there isn’t probably the best idea.

 And at last, we have craigslist. There are little to no barriers to entry here, so customer is left on their own to sort through bad listings until you find something worthy. But don’t be discouraged – some of the best deals on used tools i’ve ever gotten were from Craigslist. It takes time and consistency to do it successfully, and if you have both, Craigslist is very good place to look for used tools. If you prefer conveniency, try out eBay and Amazon. eBay has some filters like sellers rating to let you quickly figure out how trustworthy the seller is. Amazon, on the other hand, is much more hands on and thoroughly inspects the products they sell.
