Topic tags/keywords: sale shop bench tools bandsaw drill press router sander jigsaw

I apologize because it has been awhile since I have posted. I really haven’t had much free time lately to make saw dust. The other day I was out in my shop to was going through a bunch of tools that I no longer need. I’ve either upgraded or I just don’t use them. I am also looking to downsize a bit as I know more about the type of woodworking I want to do and what I need. I figured I would post everything here before I put it up on CL.

I am located in the greater Boston area. If you are interested in anything please let me know. I also wouldn’t mind trading for a hollow chisel mortiser, angle grinder with some wood cutting discs. There are a few other things that I am looking for as well.

Here is a list of what I am trying to sell and the condition its in. Feel free to message me with any questions. I’ll post some pictures of the items later tonight. I won’t be able to post pictures of everything because of the limit but I will do what I can. I’ll pretty much take whatever offer is reasonable. I will keep this post updated for anything that I add or sell.

1) Porter Cable Router 895 package with plunge base. Great condition hardly used but the case is a little dusty. I am sure I can remedy that.

2) New model Rigid floor standing drill press including Rockler drill press table. Good condition. Has seen some use. minor rust on some parts.

3) Dewalt 3 inch belt sander. Hardly used. Case is dusty but I will clean it up.

4) Porter Cable biscuit joiner and box of biscuits. Great condition. I used it once to try it out.

5) Craftsman adjustable roller stand. Not to useful for me. I would rather have out-feed tables.

6) Bosch jigsaw model 1590EVS. Used maybe 3 times.

8) Craftsman red and black 6 foot butcher block bench with drawers on left side. Also includes built in pegboard, lighting and power. This is basically new.

9) Craftsman red and black rolling drawer set. This is basically new.

10) Craftsman red and black corner shelving unit. This is basically new.

11) Craftsman RAS. Not the greatest shape by any means but it works. Needs new mdf table and fence. Comes with base but my father dented it with his car. Its functional and basically free.

12) Rikon 14 inch deluxe bandsaw. This saw is basically new and has upgraded guides and a mag fence. Also includes a mobile base. I am debating whether or not I want to sell this.

13) Bosch GCM12SD 12 inch sliding compound miter saw. Great condition.

14) Portable can type propane heater 50-80k BTUs. Well used last winter.

Any hand tools or clamps? I have a new DeWalt angle grinder that we might be able to do something with. I’m in Albany, NY so neither of us should get hit too hard on shipping.

sikrap – I have some hand tools but the ones I would part with are not really worth much. A couple of marking gauges and some newer model Irwin Marples. I use the Marples as my glue cleanup / standard maintenance chisels.I also plan on keeping my clamps but would be interested in getting rid of the mobile clamp rack. Its the rocker clamp rack and has a few extra bars etc.

crank49 – Yes I did. Nice catch, I’m multitasking at work right now. I have updated the post to reflect that it is in fact a bandsaw.

Dan, I would recommend taking that bandsaw off the list of items you want to sell for downsizing. I have only had a sizable one for under a year and I think I would get rid of my TS before getting ridding of that one now. Especially if I was selling for the purpose of space. So much you can do on a BS that you can’t do on a TS. The few things you can’t do on a BS that you can on a TS can be done with a router.

Just my two cents,

David

David – You have a very good point. That’s why I’m not sure I want to sell it but I might just because I am downsizing. I am downsizing because I plan to move in the near future and don’t know what type of space I will have. It also means less to move. So I want to get rid of the things that I don’t “need”. My hand tools, clamps, SawStop and Joiner/Planer are the things I wont sell because I have to much time and money invested in them. Right at this moment I don’t use the bandsaw enough to make me want to keep it around. When I start re-sawing and cutting major profiles again I think I want to go with a tool that fits in with the other that I have.

I hear you Dan and I know your reasoning is based on a much better understanding of your own situation than I have :) Whenever anyone talks about selling their tools here, I have the tendency to play “angel’s advocate” and give reasons why one shouldn’t sell. I figure if they are determined, and have good reason, my advice will go by the wayside. However, if one is second guessing, then maybe my comments might be enough of a push to keep one from making a decision they regret later on.

Good luck on the sell,

David

David – I really appreciate your input. I’m still on the fence and you have me leaning toward keeping it. At this point I’ll just have to work it out myself. If no one contacts me about it I won’t have to worry.

Dan, Thanks but I have a “few” clamp racks already. I’m trying to find some of the mid-size besseys to fill them :))
