Has anyone bought any of these parts from eBay, and if so, is it worth the shipping costs to Northern Canada?

I've bought and sold a good amount and I've had good luck. I don't accept any checks for payment and I try to use a credit card through PayPal when buying and I avoid bidders with negative or low feedback ratings.

Well, I've never used eBay so I guess I better bone up on it. When you say you don't accept bids from those with low feed-back, what do you mean? You won't take bids from first-time bidders?

Those might help some.. to get you started.
Sellers and Buyers are rated on a Feedback scale. Positive and Negative. If you purchase an item and all goes well. The seller will give you Positive feedback. If the Seller shipped item to you and item was as described. You'll give him Positive feedback. Its very simple. Beside each persons name is a number (for how many things they've sold/purchased) and their feedback rating.

Good luck

Luke

I said that wrong, instead of bidders I should have said sellers. If I see someone selling something has a negative or 1-5 rating I'll usually pass on the item. If I really need the item I might take a chance with someone with low numbers of feedbacks, but I will almost never buy from someone with more than 5% or so negative feedback or more.
