Topic tags/keywords: question pricing

Hey everyone,
So I have some spare plane parts I am considering selling, and I want to know how much I should post them for, preferably on Ebay. What I have is a post 1933 no 3 lever cap with pristine nickel with yellow paint in the logo. I also have two newer stanley blades in basically new condition, but they’re the kind with rounded corners at the back, so I am guessing they’re not worth as much.

Your best bet is to see what else is listed that’s close to your parts and you will get a range for the prices.

If you’re putting them on e-bay, I would just list them as an auction if it were me. Otherwise, look at completed/sold listings for those parts to get an idea of what you can expect. You might offer them up on here before listing on ebay. Some LJ may be seeking those parts and it would save you the seller fees.

Look up NHplaneparts on eBay. His prices are top end or above what you’ll get. He gets those prices because he has built up a reputation and a large enough inventory of parts that people know to search for him and he lists them with enough information that searches find them. Maybe half of his prices would be a starting point? I suspect he also is willing to part out complete planes because he makes more money this way. I’d prefer complete tools stay complete, but it does help him feed his family and isn’t unethical really. Plus for all I know I’m wrong and he only sells parts from planes that weren’t complete anyway.

+1 on offering here in the trade and swap forum first.
