Thanks Mosquito.

Lizardhead, I meant no insult, but wanted to give you a heads up on what real world pricing is like. Pawnshops only offer about 10% of new cost because, A): they sell for about 50% of new cost, (at least reputable shops do). B): They test the item up to a point but usually have no way to tell if the motor is on it’s last legs, the arbor bearings are shot, or if the top is warped. They are taking a chance, so are the customers that buy from them and from you.
You seemed to take umbrage but failed to notice my next line: ”Selling to private parties or shop owners could net you maybe 50% of your cost.”

I didn’t ask for anything free, I tried to apprise you of the fact that your expectations may be a bit high. I then went on and asked you for a price on the Kreg tool equipment and the battery powered equipment.
This was a genuine request.

I hereby rescind that request. I would not buy from you.
