    Anyway, at least in this instance, future buyers will know that this seller's descriptions are too generous.

    No, it wouldn't be sensible to give the seller's eBay handle, out of context, in this forum. It might even open me up to further complications and I don't have any appetite for that.

    What I meant in my post about saving other future buyers from this seller is that my 'feedback' on eBay in conjunction with this transaction was a clear message to others shopping for a camera that this seller did not use accurate descriptions on the camera. I was explicit that it was a camera that was poorly described. Any future seller who reviews this seller's feedback will go into the transaction knowing what is what.

    I hope that makes sense to you, Dan.

    You do realize you can file for either a refund or "partial refund" because it falls under the category of "Item not as described", meaning you could still keep it, but demand a partial refund because of the ammount of money you'd have to put into it to get it fixed upto the standards described by the seller. Besides no harm in mentioning the seller, its standard pratice to be able to look the guy up in the future anyways.

    As a business we need to treat our ebay storefront the same as a brick and mortar, that is to say, if you wouldnt sell a camera to someone in person stating everything is fine when its not, then why would you do so online. Anyone who does such online, I feel no sympathy towards them if some disgruntled buyer decided to let the world know, though the acusation of such is usually taken with a grain of salt in either direction.

    This seller use to post lots of new old stock unused bellows. I think many were Kodak items, though with a little trimming fit nicely on an AGFA or Balda. I bought several 6x9 sized bellows from him to restore some of my folder cameras.
    I have a set from him languishing in drawer from back when I thought I might have the patience to do bellows replacements. If someone needs a specific size I would be happy to look.

    I'm doing that now with a drum scanner. They make you jump through a bunch of hoops, and with a drum scanner, there are no repair places to take it to, to prove that it really is damaged. It's such a huge PITA that they expect you to just give up and take the loss. Even if you can prove that the seller is not telling the truth about something else, they don't care. They have their script of what to do and when to do it, and that's all they want. I fully expect that even after complying with their wishes to have the scanner inspected that I will not get my money back.

    If you paid with paypal, and everything meets the requirements (ie: US buyer, US Seller, Confirmed address etc) , then its oddly easy for paypal to give you back the money for "item not as described".

    Though ya I can't think of a service center to say otherwise for a Drum scanner, let alone one to give you a dianostic without some kind of charge.

    It is Paypal, and it is not so easy.
    You see the seller is allways right, so if they claim the item was fine, you have to prove otherwise. PIctures are not enough, the item has to be examined by an unbiased third party repair shop. Which is a little bit of an oxymoron, repair shops are in business to make money, so everything is always broken. In this case it is clearly damaged, and the seller didn't even follow through on filing the insurance claim.
