    Hi everybody,
    I am new in building diy cnc and was trying to build my first cnc with about 1000mmx1600 work area.
    To make long story short I purchased kit from linearmotionbearings2008 on eBay with all rails and ball nuts. The order arrived two days ago and as soon as I have seen the box that my stuff was shipped in, my heart sank and I thought Iím going to have a hart attack. 1600mm ball screws and 1700mm rails were shipped in the cardboard box with no support of any kind. I knew before opening the box that there is no way that this stuff is not bent. At minimum I assumed that this would be strapped on the flat wooden board if not in the wooden box.
    Rails were ok.

    I have exchanged few emails with the seller and initiated return on eBay, he didnít seem to care, offered me 50$ on 750$ order.
    Is there anything I can do? Will going to eBay resolution solve anything, what about calling my credit card company?
    If this is how this stuff is shipped how does he maintain 100% positive review on eBay. I canít imagine this happened only to me.

    I apologize for my broken English, Iím a foreigner living in US.
    Any suggestions
    Help ☹

    Take it up with eBay through their normal procedures - on the few occasions that I've had problems they've been generally helpful.

    Interesting to see that the shortage of toilet tissue during the pandemic is a global problem I'm on my last roll now, will I need to remove the mister of the machine to make an improvised bidet I wonder?

    Voicecoil,
    I've been wondering what business opportunities there are for portable bidet salespersons, but nobody else seems to have spotted the opportunity bar you and me.

    There seems to be a duplicate thread here. I replied to the other one and was puzzled later to see so many replies here - but not mine.

    Perhaps the OP double posted?
