....pity the sellers who dont put everything on the top line ...or searchers who dont know about this .

Also, within a page of search results, look under the green 'search' button, to find the check box for including the description.

Every day's a new day with ebay.

Ebay must have learned the art of maintaining a user interface from Microsoft. :(

ebay needs to quit changing the whole damn site every other day. i completely gave up on them for selling stuff and don't have the patience to relearn how to search every time i want to buy something...

I gave up on them about two or so years ago. For selling I started using a place called Gozbay.com. I also use bonanzle and now Upillar. I do still buy on Ebay (occasionally). But seems that more and more stuff is moving to these other sites.

Don't just limit your searches to Ebay, check out those other sites.

It is still there, you need to initially search for something like "Lathe" then after the initial search it shows the little box to check under the search button. So, just check it and click search again...
