I was looking for a cyclone dust separator and ran across this site. I found one for $17.20 plus about $6.00 shipping. It looks almost like their "expensive " one for $35.00 which has a lot of good reviews. I ended up surfing the site for over an hour. I'm not sure what a lot of the electronic stuff is that they carry but the woodworking stuff looks interesting. They hook you in by giving a coupon with the first order but I think it's a little misleading. At first, you think it's $20 dollars but I think it's actually $3.00 off a $20.00 item. Not sure, Anyway It's a place to waste an hour or so. They also have an interesting box joining jig. On Amazon, it sells for $105 and they have it for $80 or $85 with free shipping.

There is a guy on utube that does reviews on bangood tools. He uses them and rates them with a fair unbiased rating. Good videos to watch if your in the market for some of their tools.

You get what you pay for. Buy the Box Joint Jig from Banggood for 80$, you're looking at a 1-2 month delivery, and if it shows up broken, based on my research, you're probably not going to get a refund, and if you have to exchange, you're on the hook for customs fees to send it back to China. Research suggests you'll never see a replacement or a refund if that's the case. Me, I will gladly buy it on Amazon for 105, even 120. If I order it at work in the morning, chances are it will arrive before I get home (happened once!). If there's something wrong with it, or it never arrives, either I will get a no-questions asked replacement, an instant refund, and as is usually the case, a coupon for my inconvenience.

I don't know about receiving goods from China in the US but I have used Banggood for quite a few Items and they have all arrived in good condition. One of the items was missing a small screw (20cents Aus) and asked if I could locate a replacement locally which I had already done. They refunded me $12 Aus so no complaints.

Take a look at the vast array of things on the site. Since I signed up with them I'm getting daily emails with items for woodworking as well as other things I didn't know existed. Of if they existed where you could find them, at least this cheap. As far as shipping time I guess it depends on the seller or the item just as it does on eBay where you can find a fishing lure for $1.00 with free shipping but it takes a month to get it. Amazon is great but I have found that it's often not the best price available and some of their things come from China and you cannot get them in two days. The last thing is that no matter where you buy something if you pay with Paypal or a charge card you are pretty much assured of not getting taken. They will always refund your money. Here is an example of something that was in the email they sent today. I have no use for it but if I had any idea on how to use a cnc machine or wanted to experiment with making a machine to use it I would be interested in it. Amazon has a 5.5 watt for $149. This is a 30 watt.
