    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

    Wow. That must have been dropped out of a plane without a chute…ugh. Tragic. Gives me a sinking feeling in my gut just to look at it. Can’t imagine *your* disappointment.



    Sorry to see that. Definitely looks like it was punted by the shipper.

    My eBay purchases are usually packed extremely well. Most sellers seem very concerned about maintaining their feedback reputation.

    Ouch I hate to see stuff like this, I know UPS here in the States has been catching a lot of flack with the way they handle packages.

    Having said that though the seller should also take care in the way he or she packages as well.

    arrived today from ebay with a crack

    I would ask the seller to split the loss with you 50-50. Just be nice if they say no.

    Good sellers usually offer a return policy on eBay. Check the listing and see if you can send it back and get a refund.

    That’s a shame.
    See if you can get money back luckily if you want to call it that there are a load of Stanley’s out there.
