Your second best option is to buy refurbished tools. We don’t usually recommend second hand tools. We’ll come to that in a minute.
Refurbished tools are pre-owned tools that have been restored to new like condition by the company selling it. This could be the original manufacturer, an online store or local hardware store that deals in refurbished tools. So look around & see where all you can find them. Many major online stores have a section for ‘refurbished tools’. It won’t be in your face and you need to find the link for it.
Coming to 2nd hand tools, we don’t recommend them in most circumstances. In most cases you don’t know anything about the tool. You can’t see any wear & tear that’s not apparent to the naked eye. And that’s the kind of wear & tear that counts. There is usually no guarantee on 2nd hand tools whereas the refurbished ones almost always come with one.
So unless you know the history of the tool, do not purchase second hand. You do not know if the tool has previously been repaired. And in case it has you can be sure that it’s life has been greatly shortened. Getting it repaired again will cost you more money & won’t be worth the use you get from it.
