LED Red Safelights are a +1 from me too... so don't spend on a safelight with filter. ( i recommend getting any light fixture and using the red led from superbrightleds.com, since they have the nm/wavelengths).
As for ebay, like anything else, it's a hit and miss, but you have to think about shipping especially with equipment as old as darkroom equipment. I recommend you look around at local sales (craigslist, local ebay, etc.) as it will let you see the actual condition of things.
I also recommend you look at other threads, which have sprung up concerning this, and see what some people have come up.
Thanks mesantacruz, I don't think we have Craiglist or ebay local in the UK, but if I do buy a complete kit I would be collecting it so I will be able to see what I'm buying before handing over any money.
