I’ve never had an issue with buying recondiditioned products. That applies to tools and other things. I agree with Panama in that if it has a warranty, give it a shot. I particuarly like it if the manufacturer states what the original issue was. Sometimes its cosmetic, sometimes its mechanical. Big difference. To answer the question though, I would be VERY nervous purchasing a more expensive stationary tool that has been reconditioned. Those purchases are few and far between as a hobbyist. Warranty or not, I’d rather not deal with the shipping issues for the big guys in the shop!
