Default 10 Assorted bends

Anybody ever purchased a box of assorted bends, due to manufacturer defects?

for example

eBay Motors: 10 Assorted 2" ALUMINIZED EXHAUST MANDREL Bends Turbo (item 250340000616 end time Dec-15-08 17:21:50 PST)

sort of a goody bag for DIYers, I'm almost tempted to buy it just to see what kind of stuff they send.

If you need it its a great buy, although you run the risk of not getting what you need or having a bunch of stuff that might not work, such as pipes with cracks or restrictive kinks

if only they were all described thats a good deal. otherwise you're buying stuff you really are not sure about, and chances are they will all be different and wont be able to form the item you will try to make out of them
