Personally I purchase reconditioned tools. Quite a bit. Sometimes I am the one reconditioning them. I love fixing up old tools myself to then use on some woodworking project. I have a 1950 6-1/4 Sears/Craftsman planer in my workshop. I had to take the rust off and take it apart and fix on the way back together. Just finished with a 25 year old Jet 1236 lathe and added it to the garage/shop. I have three Bostitch air nailers-all reconditioned. I have recondtioned and purchased several reconditioned hand tools.

Lacking paint or a tool with a scratch, does not bother me. It will have one when I get done with it the first time I use it anyway.

Like Nicky If it comes with a warranty, I’ll consider it. Most do have a warranty with them.
