Guys/gals. Hello!

I have, what may be an odd request. Unfortunately my step father passed away last month and my mom has asked me to help with the clearing out of his woodworking shop. He did everything from furniture to custom pool cues…

Woodworking is not my passion so I was hoping to get some help on the value of some of the items in the shop.

Is that ok to post here or is there another place/forum that would be more appropriate.

Thanks in advance,

Absolutely post away if you want. Giving us a location will be helpful. Keep in mind that the prices that individual people here are willing to pay will vary by a lot, and by their geographical location. It may be best to find someone in your area who is qualified to give you appraisals of the machines if it matters that much.

I have recommended this to my family when it comes time to deal with my tools.

You didn’t say where you are, they could be where you live or there might be something similar in your area. They inventory, photograph, sell, and handle shipping. They do all the work and you get paid.

Have your say...
