Just want to say here that my experience has been the same, only
different !!! I have sold a few parts to fellow listers, by
sending the parts to the buyer, and if he approves of the part
and its condition, then he can send me a check. Simple as that,
and based on trust; if I think the parts are worth it, I will buy
insurance on them, but most have been small bits and pieces, which
are hardly worth fighting over, but then again, there have never
been any problems. Just lucky ? Maybe, but it seems to me that
no fellow lister would try to stiff another for $10. or $20. if
he received and used the part sent, that would be really bad form,
and my impression of the list members is that there is a very
small chance of that happening. So far,so good ! I don't expect
any bad surprises, either, and if I do, you-all can tell me that
I was too naive, but you'll have to wait until I complain of
getting stiffed, first !
JMHO and 2 cents' worth,
(p.s. very few TR-6 bits left; from crashed '75 CF 37749 U )
