Depends on the job. There is often (for example) the case where you can see that it would have worked if the tool hadn't broken/bent/slipped.

Agreed, I needed a router, returned two for being useless. By which time I knew a bit more about routers.

There is a trick Hairyloon, ask who, local to you, already has the welder you like the look of in the shop, then go see if that person is happy with it and would he have another! If you hit it off, he may well give you a go-bonus-so take some steel with you of the type you think you will use most often! Just an idea.
