What is the best way to sell several pcs of equipment? I am looking to downsize my woodworking business to a hobby shop. Selling table saw, 16”jointer, dual drum sander, 20” planer with byrd head, 3 phase converter. and a lot of other small tools and tooling. Do I auction it. sell it piece by piece. i know about craigslist but what are some other options? Thanks Jim

Why not put a detailed price list together and post it here?

Jim, Craig list and posting it here are both good options. When I sold some equipment last year, I listed in both places. I live in Myrtle Beach, SC, so I posted mine on Craig list in Raleigh NC and Charleston, SC and Myrtle Beach. I had calls from all over NC and SC. Sold everyting I wanted in about a week. I didn’t give anything away, but I did price it right.
