CSA-approved tools


#1

Dear all

There are some items for jewellers sold by local workshops. No names
mentioned here. The owners are well meaning in trying to assist
tradespeople by selling mini-motors. I was approached by one
workshop owner and tried out his innovative reasonably priced items.
I brought his item back home to my shop in Toronto,Canada. I
approached a tool supplier to act as a sole-supplier.

The owner said to me…“Gerry, where is the CSA-UL rating on this
great looking item?”. As there wasn’t any label on it, it was given
back to me in seconds.

Moral of this; “if it’s too good to be true, don’t risk buying it”.
Where is the warranty and safe-standards label? Never buy something
if it’s cheap, there might be a problem along the road.

Always buy from a brand name company, let them issue the CSA-UL
label. IF you injure yourself due to any electrical problem, you
won’t have a leg to stand on, “buyer beware”. This item is still
sitting at my bench…UNUSED and never will it be used…Gerry!
