I have a 1945 Sterling 1000 electric sander in the original box with all the pads, accessories, sand paper, oil, even replacement motor brushes. I want to sell it, however I have no idea if it has a value outside of it’s cool-ness. I prefer to sell it to someone who would appreciate it for it’s history.. I am looking for a way to do that and don’t know the right forum..

Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.. BTW it does work too…!

Nick I have the same sander along with the sandpaper, pads, brushes, oil, and extra filters as well and it’s in the original metal carrying container. Did you ever find a seller or at least find out how much it’s worth. I too want to sell mine to someone who would appreciate it more. It does work also. Thank you sir.

Desmond… I found someone that offered me $40 plus shipping. I am still waiting on the check… So I emailed all over the place including Porter-Cable.. No responses… Sorry I could not be of more help..
