Seems like he's asking legitimate questions to make sure you're not accidentally under the impression that the piece doesn't fit. Maybe he was a little out of line with the whole dishonest comment, but that's definitely not what I would call him going crazy...
However, I will say that regardless of any attitude on either end, WJL seems to not understand, or at least appreciate, a seller NOT wanting to return/exchange parts. I don't see the explosions you seemed to be implying, but I do totally agree that his attitude was unprofessional. I also think that your decision to no longer do business with him is completely appropriate, and I wish you luck with having eBay resolve all this for you.
I've only had a few experiences with this guy personally, and for the most part they've all been pleasant. A few years back I bought a complete, minus a little chrome wear in excellent condition G1 Grapple from him. At least, I was under the impression it was in excellent condition - it arrived with joints looser than any figure I own, or have gotten since. If you ignore the loose joints (which doesn't matter when it's sitting on a shelf) it's otherwise fine though. Still, while I don't think I'll be necessarily avoiding him in the future if I need some parts, this story has definitely convinced me to make sure I do my research into anything I buy from him beforehand.
