I was wondering if I could get some thoughts on this demo Festool RO 150 that I’m going to sell. It has the upgraded head, sandpaper, and shop vac hose. It retailed for 585.00 back in the day, so I was thinking 400? penny for your thoughts! :-)

I can’t load an images for some reason.

Also this jointer, that I really don’t know what it’s worth!!

Thanks for any help,

Rule of thumb for any used tool is 1/2 the original purchase price …

Mark-

I suppose that is a good rule of thumb. My jointer may prove to be more difficult!

Not enough info on that jointer that I can find to even give a ballpark. I think you’re going to just have to take a stab at that one!

Used Festools tend to draw a good resale… if you can find a buyer. Most hobbyists won’t pay more for a sander than they did for a tablesaw, but if you can find someone who would use it professionally, you may get that much out of it.

Not always. Used Festool track saw for some reason goes if not for 100% but close to it. Some old Unisaw goes around $400-$500 but a new one is $3000+.

50% rule, I dont agree, depends on the market, supply and demand on the used market. quality of it compared to now made item. I would hardly get 50% for a 1 year old Shop Smith, more like 33%. A good quality slightly used cabinet TS more like 65%. Never say never, just after you do, you end up doing it.

I think I’ll start high and work my way down. I’m not in a hurry to sell these items. Thanks for thoughts.
