I figured it must be a mistake, but for $13.00 I figured I'd take a chance. I already received the notice that it shipped, and they haven't changed the price yet.

Thanks

50 negative reviews the last month. 507 the last year. How do they allow this seller to continue.

For $13, it's worth a shot. Sometimes lunch around here costs more than that.

$13, bought one. Maybe a good laugh. Maybe a good cup-holder or door stop. The threaded back plate fits my wood lathe I think... Who knows?

Seller has more than one listing for the 6" chuck priced at $13.00 free shipping.

Probably a great chuck for mill table operations. Caveat emptor. I'm saving my pocket change, but I am interested in what turns up on your doorsteps!

I've seen a similar thing on Ebay a few times. A seller lists something super low in price, gets tons of sales, and then get shut down by e-bay, and everyone gets their money refunded. Some have been new sellers, some have been old sellers like this one. usually happens over a weekend. I don't get it.

But I jumped in, and ordered two. Either I get two chucks, or I get my money back.

I figured it must be a mistake, but for $13.00 I figured I'd take a chance. I already received the notice that it shipped, and they haven't changed the price yet.

I went for one also, at that price I had to.
I have a rotary table project in the design phase and
this looks like a risk worth taking for it, we'll see how it goes.................................:dunno:

So whats the chance that these chucks get anywhere close to the 0.003" runout it claims to produce?

If you search chucks and sort by price, there are many sellers selling the same chuck at the $13.00.
Will be interesting to see what turns out.

I'm guessing that's the runout :p

Seriously though, I'm curious to see what gets delivered to you.

Well, I bit too. Got a shipped notice within an hour. I'm hoping the "Note: Please allow 1-3cm error due to manual measurement" applies to the approximate measurements right above the note -
Item size: approx.16*16*11CM
Package size: approx.27*27*19CM
Otherwise we'll all get a nice door stop :oops:

Yea, I just noticed that also. So far, all the ones I checked, are all from Chino Ca. Whats the odds they are the same seller?

Well, I'll bite so ordered one too. It would be good to mount on a welding positioner if they actually send it. A precision chuck isn't really important for welding positioner purposes but haven't find one close to that price. Used paypal, so they would likely refund if it's a scam.

I ordered one. If it never shows, I'll get a refund. So no no risk to me.

That might be because they are now Out of Stock! Many of these ebay vendors jack the price up when they run out of stock as a way to keep the ad in place for some reason!

Durn! I recall trying to jump on the bandwagon on another "killer" ebay deal (another typo, IIRC) a couple of months ago, and having the seller cancel the order ... claiming to be out of stock or something similar. I'd be willing to bet that it'll happen again this time. Ah, well ... if it's too good to be true, it's too good to be true.

The fine print says:

"1.We will ship your item with USPS,or DHL then transit to USPS, FedEx then transit to USPS, package usually takes 3-10 business day(except holiday) "

That usually means 7 to 8 days to get here from Ca.
