I am not sure about the allowances of For Sale Items. Therefore I am flagging this post to see if it gets removed. I have a very small shop with about $15,000 in tools and misc. inventory. I have Asthma, and COPD, so I cannot work in the dust anymore, I think I got it from woodworking. Some of the bigger items are: Festool Chop saw and orbital sander with vac, Excalibur scroll saw, Porter Cable Bandsaw, Craftsman- contractor Table Saw, 2 Ricon disk – belt sanders one 10” & one 6”, Delta Lathe, Jet tool sharpening system, Craftsman grinder, Air compressor w/ 100’ hose & reel all on a 4 wheel dolly, Leigh dovetail jig, Box joint jig, Letter & number routing jig, 4 Routers (Good Ones), Bosch jigsaw, Makita circular saws, 4-1/2” 90 degree Grinders, Milwaukee band saw & Sawzall, Frued Router and table, 7’ workbench with 2 vises, Jet dust collector vac 1 HP. Various battery drills, Bench top drill press, 4 each roll around table tops (steel frame), Lots of hand tools, finish, sandpaper, stains, dies, jigs of many kinds, Kreg jigs and other Kreg stuff, Chests, Clamps, etc, etc,etc. My starting prices are at 25% below retail or what you could get them for when “On Sale” You pay shipping From Tempe, AZ. If you are interested contact me first by LJ’s message.

Generally speaking, most folks expect to pay no more than 50% of retail for anything used.

Just saying.

I hate hearing that you are having physical problems.
Unfortunately, I too think your price point is too high.
Pawn shops normally give 10¢ on the dollar, not withstanding what they show on the “Pawnstars” show.

Selling to private parties or shop owners could net you maybe 50% of your cost.

I know, it sucks, but that’s the way life is.

Realistically, I would put the stuff on eBay with a minimum that would cover the eBay costs. Shipping would be at buyers expense or set up to show Pickup or Freight Shipping only.

On the other hand, let me know what you want fr the battery tools and the Kreg stuff….. I’m a sucker!

I am sorry to hear about your maladies. If I lived closer I would definitely be interested in some of what you are selling. Are you going to get into something else besides woodworking…..carving or something like that that wouldn’t cause too much respiration problems? Whatever you do….do it the best ya can.

Sorry to hear about your illness and I hope all is well. I think you should trade off stuff for some hand tools. Hand tools create very little dust and you can listen to your favorate FM station without missing a beat.

I’m so SORRY your health is stopping you from doing anymore woodwork,,, :(

Making a list of all of the stuff you want to sell, sounds like, would be a major task in itself…

Start with the large items & work down?

I’m interested in seeing what you have…

Again, I’m sorry you have to quit…
I guess you’ve tried all kinds of air-filtration masks, etc.?

Thanks for all the concern: However I am looking for interest as I have stated—-nothing more. But I must respond to Dallas: 10 cents on the dollar, really? You would do really good to only pay $100 for a $1000 tool, no doubt, but you ain’t getting it from me, so forget it. My problem is with breathing—not brain damage

I am sorry to hear about your problems. I would be interested in the Scroll Saw. I am not sure what is meant by “If you are interested contact me first by LJ’s message.” I don’t know what that means or how to contact you.
Thanks,
John

Dallas was referring to if you took it to a pawn shop you’d get 10 cents on the dollar. 50%-60% of retail is typically what well cared for used items go for., sucks when you’re trying to sell, but most people aren’t just selling for the heck of it…

Scroller: The Scroll Saw is an Excalibur EX16. The only difference between this one and a new one in the box is that mine has been sitting out collecting dust. It has a total run time of maybe 15 minutes. See my post in projects titled “2012 GoldWing”. That is the only thing I have made with it. I will take $400.00 for it>

Thanks Mosquito.

Lizardhead, I meant no insult, but wanted to give you a heads up on what real world pricing is like. Pawnshops only offer about 10% of new cost because, A): they sell for about 50% of new cost, (at least reputable shops do). B): They test the item up to a point but usually have no way to tell if the motor is on it’s last legs, the arbor bearings are shot, or if the top is warped. They are taking a chance, so are the customers that buy from them and from you.
You seemed to take umbrage but failed to notice my next line: ”Selling to private parties or shop owners could net you maybe 50% of your cost.”

I didn’t ask for anything free, I tried to apprise you of the fact that your expectations may be a bit high. I then went on and asked you for a price on the Kreg tool equipment and the battery powered equipment.
This was a genuine request.

I hereby rescind that request. I would not buy from you.

I’m sorry to hear about your respiratory problems. I hate that it results in your retirement from the hobby but I’m sure you’ve given it plenty of thought. I think 25% below retail might fly for the Festool and Leigh. Maybe clamps, too. The rest I’m not so sure about. I wish you the best of luck and hope your health returns as best it can.

Dallas: I just get a bit testy because most of these responses are about educating me on what I should or shouldn’t do about my prices, Take my Festool Kapex for example (a $1300 tool) We all know that that tool just cannot be bought anywhere for less than perhaps 10% off retail in a used condition. I on the other hand, am selling mine, for $950.00 that my friend is a steal to anyone looking for a Kapex. None of my tools are junk, none of my tools are older than about 1-1/2 years. You are not obligated to purchase from me, and I am not obligated to sell for less than I want.

^$950 for a Kapex will go very quickly. If you were closer, I’d be quite tempted.
