If you have some items that have PARTICULARLY HIGH value …. that Stanley #1 for example … you need to document that. Otherwise, we have friends who will help her place a dollar amount with an item, BUT … it is MY wish (because I’m reasonably certain she won’t need the money unless something really catastrophic happens) that she GIVE away a lot of it to anyone who will USE it and not sell it … at least right away. My kids get first dibs (after my wife… she may want to keep some of it), but beyond that…. hey… if I’m gone, she can do whatever she wants with it. :)

I’ve already told her that a general rule for the bigger tools I purchased new (table saw, jointer, planer, etc) is that they typically START at about 50% of the new price if they’re in great condition.
