True, that was pretty funny.

There’s some reluctance to shooting you a number because value of a factor-made workbench is such a subjective thing. So many folks on this forum make their own benches that we have a long-running thread dedicated to planning and building them. For folks like them (and me), buying one isn’t a desired option.

That said…

I remember thinking those aren’t cheap. Are they still being made for sale? I’ve not looked. My guess (worth every penny you paid for it) would be somewhere around the $750 mark, but that could be as much as half of what it’s worth. I just don’t know.

Maybe someone else that’s been in the market will chime in.

Good luck!

EDIT: This one went for $975

Carveforlife,

I have an Ulmia bench that was found after extensive shopping when I was living in Germany. So I got a chance to see a few and do a lot of comparison. Your bench should get somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 to 1,200 USD. This value is based on the addition of the tool well, the cabinet underneath and the condition of the bench. Quite frankly, if you are not looking to get rid of it in a hurry, you could probably ask more for it due to its relative rareness in this country. Ulmia benches are top notch and they don’t come up for sale very often. The tool well and the cabinet are very attractive features.

If you need to see what these benches typially run for, go to ebay.de and you will see a bunch of them on there. You will see they get good money for them, as they should. They are great benches. Good Luck.

-- Mike

Sorry carve. Theres been a couple suspect threads lately that, on the surface, look like shill accounts to try and boost the price of an item for sale on the Craiger.

First time poster lookin for pricing smelled funny.

Thanks Smitty! I was going to get a bench for $100 until you chimed in… :)

Too far away for me. All the best in getting what you need for it!

Ad seems legit – I got a personal message back right away.

I am Carve for Lifes brother. I can assure you its a legit post and a great bench if there are any serious inquiries I am happy to get freight quote for you. Ideally we would rather see some one in the Mid Atlantic just come and pick it up. I can say that we would definitely have to add $100 to the freight just to cover the hassle of getting this packaged safely on a pallet. I work out of a warehouse and I would be able to fork lift it onto an LTL carrier no problem, but the receiver would need to have a fork lift or receiving time that they could off load the bench with a few people.

Just some thoughts…
