Default Banggood????

I came across Banggood while ordering a prism for my granddaughter. They have router bits and metal working tools, are they any good or better then Harbor Freight? It seems almost every tool now comes from China. At the 1964 World's Fair China had a display of machinery, the U.S. main display was a wall of "hot pink" paint I believe from Glidon.

I would be suspect of them. Stick with what you know is good and you won't be disappointed.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

- another data point: I bought a drone from them. Exact item I ordered was received in excellent packaging, and on the schedule as advised (2 wks). Shipment was via Hong Kong.

Bought a small cyclone from them to. ount to a small drum. All dimensions metric. It cost me $23 Canadian pesos and took 3 weeks to come from China. All dimensions are metric. In order to hook up to my vac and thickness planer I used flex plumbing fittings that cost twice what the cyclone did. It works great though!

Two thoughts:
1. Most of what I saw at that Worlds Fair has never seen the light of day in the real world. That's about the same time they predicted another ice age, funny how that has worked out.

2. Ordered a Toshiba that came directly from China and I'm using it to type this message. Good machine so the lesson is some things are good and some are worthless.(yes I know Toshiba is a Japanese company but their stuff comes from China too)

Stick with the tried & true and let someone else do the lab test for questionable products, unless of course you can afford to be the "tester". Then if the product in a winner post the results for us cheapskates and we will buy it too. lol
