Seller underestimated the international shipping price of an item I just won. I knew the shipping was a bit low when I bid, but I didn't expect my low-ball bid to win. I know I don't have to make this right, but I want to: does eBay have a legit way of fixing this? [more inside]

So my trusty Old Car is showing some signs that her time is up. I'd like to get a replacement sooner rather than later. A new car is not in the cards for me, I don't think.

Help me not make a bad decision. [more inside]

Dad Swan is an accomplished woodworker who also has a fairly severe case of rheumatoid arthritis. He'd like to make his own chess pieces to go with the chess boards he makes, but the process is too fiddly for him to manage. He read in a 2004 book by Mike Darlow that there are chess piece tops on the market that a woodworker can buy and attach to their own turned bases, but I can't seem to find anything like that on the net. Woodworkers of MeFi, do you know of such a product?

Some years ago, I was impressed by a William Gibson character's laptop: it had one-of-a-kind turquoise inlay. If high-quality handmade keyboards set with semiprecious stones exist, they're out of my price range. But the world is full of custom keycaps for mechanical keyboards! Do you have a favorite source for artistic or handmade keycaps?
