Does this one seem kosher ?

Postby thatsnotafestool » Mon Nov 13, 2017 11:28 am

Spotted this new Festool XL for sale on eBay.

I dunno. Maybe it's me but it smells iffy. If you look at other items the seller has sold in the past, there seems to be an awful lot of 'new' power tools. In addition, I asked three questions...

1) Is the receipt available? Answer....'the receipt is staying with my accountant'. :-k

2) Has it been registered yet with Festool for warranty ? Answer ....'it has not been registered yet as you can see in image it’s brand new with barcode so you can register yourself.' :-k :-k

3) Can I come and see it. Answer came there none.

Thoughts ?

To me it looks like some one reducing there tax bill, they sell the new tool on without the vat.
Will be interesting to see if it sells and at what price.

I'd be concerned by the number of baseball caps behind it :-)

Currently at £735 plus postage with 10 hours to go, when you can get a new one for £850 from Warren at Bunny's Bolts (toolfest), I know what I would do.

Not a bad little earner. Pulling an untaxed £735 out of the business. Plus possibly the 20% VAT claimed back.

I think actually I'd pay the full price from a reputable dealer where I know if something goes wrong I'm going to be able to get it sorted. Each to his own.
