Loads of laser levels on eBay, some go for silly (high) prices,
some look reasonable until you see how much they want for
postage. Maybe the odd bargian to be had if you're patient and
can be bothered.
Somewhere in the UK there is obviously a footie pitch-sized
warehouse packed to the roof with Far Eastern lasers, @ something
like £1 each if you buy a crateload. http://tinyurl.com/tdf6
Seriously though, where DO these traders buy the stuff from?

If you search around on the Internet you can find these things out
usually. I've been watching the following clamps sell for £30+, plus
postage, for the last few weeks:
Nearly bought one myself a little while ago :)
Now if you head over to Axminster:
A pair of identical clamps at £37.91, shipping included. Not difficult
to see how some people are making money on ebay.
I've seen similar things with other objects of desire to the punter.
These days I avoid anything that looks like a dealer transaction .
I wonder are they by the same manufacturer.
Last cramps I bought from Axminster were their own brand Tee bar sash
They were dreadful rubbish
I see they have a version of the Bessey style 'F' clamp, with parallel
pull-up faces. Theirs are in yellow while the Bessey use red trim.
Wonder are they in the same camp as Bessey

Still works here, but maybe the target URL doesn't work on other
It was just the result of an eBay search for "laser level". I
first started looking a few weeks ago and there is a steady
stream of these things.
You have to be very careful with eBay or you can end up bidding
more than retail, or paying the same but from some unknown who
may not be so good to deal with if the item develops a fault.
Partly answering my own question here.
This is the manufacturer. Scroll down and you can see a pic of
the rotary levels continually being advertised on eBay. Elsewhere
it says the minimum order is 1700 units.
Next item down is one Axminster sells under its own name for £55
Half tempted to enquire with the co. for cost of 1700 delivered
to the UK.
