Default I need a bunch of help

I bought a NEW in the box Craftsman Router-Recreator off of eBay. Ownr assured me it was new, never been put together, but the box had been opened. Well, I guess I have a different view from his description. Since it's missing parts, but most can be made or bought (usual hardware/nuts/bolts/washer/etc). BUT what I can't get away from is that the wood panels (that make up the body of the tool) is missing. We're talking 4 pieces of wood that tie the front and back together and 2 panels that are actually used for the base upon which it replicates.

Good news, Sears still sells these, bad news, they are $23 each and I need 4.

So, now here's where you can help me. I need a drawing of these panels (all 4 are the same), so that I can make my own or someone may know where I can find these things for a lot less than the price at Sears.

If anyone has one of these that are now scrap, I'd be more than willing to pay a decent price and shipping for these panels and any other parts I may need and you may have.

Thanks for your consideration!

Hi Jim

Al you need to do put the frame together and pickup some 3/4" MDF cut the boards to fit the frame and mark them for the bolts to hold it to the frame..
It's that easy

That would work if all I wanted was a base. However, I would like to make 3D items, plus there are some nuts and bolts along the back of the unit, that I'm not sure what they are meant for. If I could get just one panel, I can make my own. I would rather make them, then buy the MDF factory panels, for obvioius reasons.

I've been looking for drawings of these panels and I can't seem to find any on line. I'm not in any real hurry to get this tool up and working, but it would be nice.

Still no luck with the seller. I doubt I'll get any satisifaction, but if I don't he will get a very bad seller feedback from me. How can someone say they are selling a NEW in box when some of the most important parts are missing?

Off my soapbox and calming down once again.

Thanks!
Jim Smith

Yes, I did pay with Paypal. But I had a bad experience where they didn't address an issue I had concerning an albino Ball Python. They did nothing. I had a vet report, but they just blew me off.

As far as eBay goes, I've never had to complain about a seller, so I don't know what will happen.

I'm going to give him until next Tuesday and see what happens.

Thanks for the advice!

Hi Jay

Just ask him for a little cash back for the MDF boards you didn't get in the deal.

Just asking what did you pay for it off eBay ? they are very hard to find for sale anywhere...
Short some parts is not a big deal , like they say, some will get up tight if they get hung with a new rope..

The biggest issue was that he was not responding to my emails. However, I did get a response today and I have asked him for the missing parts. If he can't find the parts, I also asked for some money back.

We will see how he responds. Hopefully by tomorrow.

Thanks for the help!

Sorry, I forgot to answer your other question. I paid $150 plus $25 for shipping. I'm not worried about any of the parts that I'm missing. I can buy or make any of the missing parts. However, I don't think the MDF frame should be one of the parts missing from a NEW IN BOX item. That's a pretty big part to not be included.

I'll be fine either way, but it would be nice if he steps up and give me a refund. I think $50-$60 would be fair. I can buy 1 panel from Sears ($23 plus shipping), use that as a template to build these panels out of plywood, buy quality nuts and bolts (no Home Depot cheapies), then I need to make a stylus or two.

Also, there were additional parts in the box that are not part of this tool. I was confused when I started the inventory of parts.

Thanks Again!
