If your large positive battery cable was loose on the starter I would have started by tightening that up and see if it started every time after that. Sound's like it was just a loose cable. Could save you the cost of the starter. Let me know what you find.

Do you have a test light or a multimeter?If so next time the starter doesn't work see if the little purple wire to the starter is getting power with the key in the start position. If it is then you have a bad starter. Let me know what you find.
