I’m looking for some assistance in pricing out some of my tools as I’m going to be significantly downsizing as my wife and I are about to go through a divorce. I’m sure I’ll land on my feet, but the truth is I don’t need all of this stuff, so I’m going to be downsizing.

The first tool: TS Rigid 3650:

Upgrades I’ve made to this include I’ve enclosed the bottom of the TS for dust control, zero clearance throat plate (with another blank one available), has a Freud 90 tooth ultimate laminate blade, plus three others. Shark blade guard with overhead DC, folding outfeed table (not my best work) as well as a phenolic router table with Kreg router plate. I’ll included the router fence and a handful of accessories as well as bits and Porter cable router (not sure on that one) Also a featherboard and very nice push stick, Incra miter gauge.

Rigid drill press:

Very low hours of use with custom drill press table that has effective built in dust collection:

Dewalt DW734 12 1/2” thickness planer. Very low hours and includes spare set of blades and installation jig. Currently mounted to my custom cabinet that as articulating/adjustable outfeed table.

Rigid shop vac with 30 gallon dust collection via dust deputy. Shop vac also has a washable Clearstream filter.

Festool Rotex duel mode sander 150 with case and plenty of paper. Low hours and upgraded pads to current style with more holes.

C&E Jointer manufactured by Pryor special machine shop out of Habra California. Completely rebuilt with all new electrical, sharpened blades, link belt, blade installation gig, mobile stand.

Sorry to hear about the divorce, I hope you find inner peace! Good luck.

It is not my business ( I even risk to draw rage of the moderator upon my bald head) and I am sure it is not you, but the effect the divorce will have on your two fine boys is much more devastating than whatever differences the adults in the family may have. Give it one last try. ( as a side bonus you will keep your tools :-)

-- It's nice!

Thanks for thoughts. We’ve tried now for awhile, so the divorce will be for their long-term sake!

You seem to have spent a lot of time “customizing” mid-priced tools (good job I think). Downside of that is you have limited your resale market…not many people will appreciate your additions. But anyway, I’m guessing your starting point will be about 75% of what you paid for the underlying machines. Doubt you’ll get it but “negotiation” proceeds from there. Divorce…well…it happens. My best friend has 3 now…A comedian (Nick Griffin I think) built an entire act on the subject…most notable quote was “Einstein got divorced…you think you’re smarter than Einstein”?). Now I hope you are both mature enough to leave the kids out of it…it’s tempting to try to get them to choose sides but that is where the real damage occurs I think.

Have your say...
