HC 56

I have read these posts with interest.
I haven’t used Aliexpress yet, but if Raynkar has, I will.

I understand the fondness you have for Raynkar as I have it too. He has helped me an untold amount of times and for me it seems, always goes the extra mile.

I am in awe of his skills, knowledge, commitment, his car and of the man.

I have the utmost respect for him.
Jack.

Thank You Jack....We Are Kindred Spirits....If Everyone was like Ray the world would be a better place.... I have to be honest, Although never having any problems with AliExpress, I didn’t like the “card only” payment & with hacking,leaks,phishing etc escalated with covid I totally stopped buying (TBH, with my health I didn’t expect to get through it!)....But with Gods Grace I’m still here...Anyway, they use PayPal now & the seller doesn’t get paid until you receive & are happy with all, So it’s in there best interest to get items to you asap... I really can’t fault them as sellers are extremely helpful...Though the lack of English understanding is obvious...But They Do Try Their Very Best...Items normally work out at least 50%+ cheaper than elsewhere.... I Hope You Have A Good Experience With Them....Warmest Regards & I look forward to further posts.....

Hi I use Ali express and share the security concerns. Might be possible to get a new bank (like starling or monzo) credit card which you top up and then dispose of when its no use to you anymore. You only every top up what you need and it cant go overspent. Worth a look perhaps.

 

Hope that helps

We are kindred spirits and I thank you for saying that.

I’m pleased we are both here to talk about, as like you I have had my health scares and am in
the process of trying to change my lifestyle to deal with it.

Anyway, look forward to our future posts.
Best regards,
Jack.

This thread has turned into a ‘love in’ lol :)

 

Bit of thread drift, but I didn’t post the finished result of the left handed knife I mentioned earlier in this thread.

I didn’t like the rosewood finish I initially chose, so stripped that and sprayed it blue.

 

Finished knife with home made wooden handle.

With regard to ali express. Whatever you buy, have a good look at all the photos, and of all photos shown by customers who have bought the item.

 

As an example, I use mostly Makita brand tools. If I wanted to buy a tool from ali express The tool they sell might show a Makita tool in the first few pics, but will then show an unbranded tool in the remaining pics, as will the customer pics.

 

For me this isn’t a con, it’s just the first pics are showing the tool that has been copied and the remaining pics are showing the actual item that will be sent. No one should expect to get a genuine Makita tool costing perhaps £250 for £40 :)

 

I mostly buy unbranded items like threaded knobs or levers for DIY projects, but also buy little bits like headphones or plastic cases.

 

The prices are much cheaper than elsewhere, but the delivery can take a very long time.
