    I see the video is marked "Includes paid promotion". It's perfectly OK to post here, and I like that individual video content creators are increasingly getting fairly compensated for their hard work. How does the process work? Does Banggood.com contact you? Can you reveal more details? Is the money any good? Is it a worthwhile strategy for other popular video creators to pursue?

    Actually.. They didn't pay me. I use that sometimes to avoid comments from "..cheap advertising.. " and that.
    Some manufacturers have contacted me with email. I think its good to have your email easily to find.

    With Banggood they asked if i want to try some of their tools, i choosed some and they sent them. Simple as that.
    I just promised to check them out, and use them with the way i want.
    I haven't taked money so far... but i know its possible to get real payments too. I just hink thats too tricky, taxes and that.

    Interesting. Seems like banggood is becoming more prominent lately. I'd like to see the bitcoin tip model mature a bit.

    One thing annoys me with the Banggood.. They don't allways mention the brand.

    So, its impossible to review tool if manufacturer varies.
    I got an rotary tool wich was sold with the brand "Drillpro". One that i got, was labeled to be "Buli"
    It looks same like the one in the picture, but if you want to buy another one, how to be sure that you get similar one?

    As I understand it, branding works differently in China than in the West. Their intellectual property protection laws are notoriously weak. Therefore, it isn't profitable for companies to work on developing a brand for decades, when someone else can just easily copy it. More: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intell...perty_in_China

    I didn't think about that. That explains it, but laws like that are like shooting yourself to leg. Why to improve anything if anyone can just take your ideas.

    Btw. Handle from that Chinese rotary tool fitted perfectly to Dremel Fortiflex. Lol.

    Jon and Tuomas,

    During the last two years I have bought from Banggood some of their hand tools and a variable low temperature soldering iron (digital display allows dialing in the tip temperature). This is not an endorsement for them but so far everything I have ordered from Banggood has good quality and the prices are very low.

    I am temped to buy some of their very inexpensive carbide inserts for taking the initial clean-up cuts on plasma cut steel parts and save my Kennametal and ISCAR inserts for cutting after the slag has been removed. I buy most of my Kennametal and ISCAR inserts with "Buy it Now" from eBay but the Banggood inserts are still 1/3 to 1/4 the price.

    It really makes you wonder what the market will look like in 5 years. Are brick-and-mortar Harbor Freight stores next on the chopping block?
