my old vintage Stanley”prefect condition” arrived today from ebay with a crack in the casting and the frog in two. i honestly believe it was sound prior to postage however the manner in which it was packed was totally inadequate to prevent damage .use e.bay all the time and 99% of the time i’m very happy. do sellers not understand that these are delicate pieces of equipment. win some lose some i suppose
Sad very sad David(( I know how hard it is. Really hard to find the plane and win bidding, and how happy we are when we get the package, and how hard to see this kind of ….disappointment.I been in same kind of story((.Sorry to see it’s happen to you.I have hope seller reimburse your money.
