Buying Used Parts

I own an manage a free on line used part finder.

Over the last year or so the number of usesers has decreased.

So I thought I'd ask the forum where & how they would look for used parts.

Would you use a part search, go straight to a breaker, use e-bay or something else.

Any information would be great - thanks.

Now you know I love, admire, and respect both of you..... That said, I find it curious that you both kinda bash Ebay (I don't sell there), but both of you do.....

Ebay's fees have gotten so bad even a saint would bash them. I sell things on ebay from time to time, mainly because that's where most people go looking for stuff but with the ebay and paypal fee double whammy, you have to price things higher than you want to make it worth it.
