Hey guys, my grandfather had a woodshop when he was alive and I have inherited many tools/tables/ect from him. I was wondering if I would sell it because I would not make good use out of it and I think someone else would. I have all of the original receipts and the tools are in great condition. They have always been stored indoors in a cool environment, but I think it is time to put them up for sale. Any suggestions about pricing? Or where to sell them? The main thing is the 510, the DC3300 Dust Collector, and the Professional Planer. I have all of the original pricing and booklets, he spent $4,057 originally. Any help would be great! Thanks!!

A few suggestions: #1 You would probably get more info and, maybe an offer over at the Shopsmith Forum.

#2 Most potential buyers would like to see pictures of EVERYTHING and a complete list of all accessories.

#3 Since the unit(s) are really difficult and expensive to ship commercially, your location would be helpful. Just a city and state. Then, any potential buyer could contact you for a more specific address. Be safe, though!

Finally, a caution. Used Shopsmiths do not seem to hold their value as well as one might assume. A realistic price on what you mentioned (510, DC3300 and Planer) would be close to 40% of the original price…and that may be on the high side.
Good luck.
