I would do my best not to scrap those. the old tools are sometimes better quality than many newer equivalent tools made today (today companies are trying to cheap out on materials and costs and it shows in many cases).

I would start by photographing all machines and groups of smaller hand tools and tool boxes (machinist toolboxes can generate some good numbers too). auction houses that will take the lot for you are a good alternative if you don’t have the time/effort to see to the sales of all the individual items yourself. is a good place to post old tools at reasonable prices which might suit your situation fairly well and can keep the sales local (as opposed to online auction websites which might add packaging and shipping efforts).
