Also, if anyone is interested, I have an old farmhouse built in the late 1800s that I want torn down, has some nice lumber in it.

Email your name and number and I will give you the location and set up a time for you to come out. The items are located in out buildings on property. Look at your own risk, We will not be responsible for any injuries on the property. Cash Only.

I wouldn’t print the “What doesn’t get sold we will scrap” line, as why would anyone pay for something that’s going to get scrapped? It has a negative connotation.
They might even watch the property and when it gets scrapped, they’ll just help themselves.

Good point, I will take that out. But, what they don’t know is I will be crushing it all with the loader before it goes to scrap. (I can haul more that way)

Thanks, D

Yes, mostly from the 50’s according to some of the paperwork and research I have done so far.

The right buyer could do very well with this lot. Much of it would piece out on eBay quite nicely, but it would take months to do it. Just make sure you come up with a decent lot price that satisfies what you think it’s worth to you.

I sold some smaller items on ebay already, like shapers, cutter and collar sets, starrett items, drill indexes, caliper sets, berylco tools, disston saws…etc, and they went way beyond what I expected to get. I may still piece some of it out since people are asking for fences and things like that but I would rather it go as a whole piece first. As for a lot price, since I don’t have a very good idea of values, I’m going to wing it since I’m learning about the items as I go and hope for honest offers. I do retain the option of saying no to what seems like bs offers though.

Ad looks good, I’d be knocking on your door if I was nearby. You have all the keywords in there that I can think of that someone searching for those types of items would put in, except maybe antique if you have any even older items. Add that in and you might get more people looking.

Have your say...
