Topic tags/keywords: powermatic tablesaw planer powermatic 66 powermatic 15 accufence rout-r-lift

I need some help pricing some wordworking tools. I bought a home in West Michigan from an executor of an estate. The deceased was an avid woodworker and furniture builder. The home has a large workshop in the basement with a number of amazing tools, that unfortunately I don’t have any current use for. I believe the tools are from 2003 judging from the plates. As you can see from the pics, they are in great condition and have been well maintained (the entire workshop is meticulous). The tablesaw has the Accufence and the Rout-R-Lift. I know the current prices are but can anyone provide me with any sense on what the market value for tools like this are? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Those are some highly regarded tools. Depending on your location, they could fetch somewhere in the $.60 to $.75 cents on the dollar range. You could try posting your location and list them here. You may find a forum member who’ll take them off your hands.

I think ripper70 is right. Powermatic tools do for sure hold their value and are regarded as good stuff in most circles. That table saw, minus the router thing just sold locally for $1700.00 and it was no where near the condition of yours…this one had definitely been rode hard and put away wet. In fact, in the photo the saw had a three foot pile of sawdust in front of it then.
The PM66 is a made in USA saw, unlike the new version, and that makes it sought after too. The other thing is that generally when someone pays this kind of money for a new one it’s because they are going to put it to use. Not too many woodworkers buy a PM to set around and look at. One in that condition I would start out at 75%...you might be surprised at how fast it goes. Best of luck, wish I hadn’t just bought one.
