    Default OT Indian tools on eBay

    Has anyone bought anything from eBay that was made and shipped from India? I was browsing indexing, dividing rotary tables and noticed this text in the shipping info: FREE Expedited Shipping from India | See details
    International items may be subject to customs processing and additional charges. No clue as to what these charges might come to. Just curious.

    Wow, that looks like a good deal. Paid more for mine and did not get all those accessories. I have never ordered from India but i think I would be willing to give it a try. As i understand it they are turning out some good product.

    I bought 2 India made items from Grizzly. The all angle vise was so badly made I sent it back. The cast iron it was made from was so full of graphite that it looked almost black. The second item was a set of insert toolholders by Glanze. I am quite happy with them.

    I haven't bought tools shipped from India, but I have bought vulcanite and bone off eBay, shipped from India with good success and satisfaction - excellent prices, too.

    Where are you getting your misINFORMATION from??

    Most if not all that comes from India is worse than the worst from China.

    It's like buying from China or any other Asian nation. Some items will be ok and some not. It's hard to know before you buy unless you have feedback from someone with personal experience with the specific provider

    And you know this how?
    Ever checked a Zither chuck out?
    Ever checked the hundreds of hand made panel beaten sheet metal parts out for resto vintage cars and motorcycles?
    Alloy c/head castings?
    Or are you just generalizing again?

    I have a boring head that was made in India and isn't very good, but it works and was cheap.





    I had an 8" 4-jaw self-centering chuck made in India and it looked good, but it didn't fit my 9x20 lathe. I traded it for a 6" independent chuck.





    Thanks for the eBay links. I might order a set of dividing plates from India, for my 6" Vertex rotary table:

    My rotary table:




    It is an HV-6. I assume they will fit OK. Last I looked, a set of dividing plates was about $100.
