Topic tags/keywords: bench saw bandsaw planer scroll saw jointer bench grinder question

Hey everyone and thanks in advance!

I don’t typically use forums but I was search the internet and this one kept popping up and got a lot of great feedback on other post.

My father passed away about 4 years ago and he had a lot of power tools that we are now ready to part with. Our only problem is that we do not know at what price to suggest when placing them on craigslist or ebay. Any and all help for suggested retail of the following tools would be greatly appreciated.

Delta 10’’ Motorized Bench Saw (Model 36-540 Type 2) and stand
- comes with owners manual and rolling/locking base

Delta DC-380 15’’ Planer
- One of the rollers needed replaced. My father purchased the replacement but it never got done. Also comes with owners manual and rolling/locking base

Delta 14’’ Wood Cutting Band Saw
- comes with owners manual and rolling/locking base

Jet JJ-6CSX Woodworking Jointer
- comes with owners manual and rolling/locking base

DeWalt 20’’ Scroll Saw and Stand
- comes with owners manual

Delta 8’’ Bench Grinder (Model 23-840) and Delta Grinder Stand (Model 23-320)
- comes with owners manual

The base that I am talking about is very much similar to this one: http://www.amazonsupply.com/delta-50-941-delta-mobile-base/dp/B0000B3AQN

I’m not sure the exact ‘age’ of these tools but would guess about 10 years old. They were hardly used and still work so we are trying to get some money for them but realize they are not brand new tools. Thank you again for the help!

Working, clean, 10-yr old power tools for reasonably quick sale:

—- 60%-65% of new price for quick sale
—- 65%-75% of new price for reasonably quick sale IF power tool is a desirable model vs. cheaply-made/made in China competing new (warrantied) models

Just made up those figures according to my questionable common-sense judgement. However, market conditions may ultimately determine your final selling prices – if you are hasty, or patient.

saw – $50-$70
planer – $400
band saw -$250
jointer – $200
scroll saw – $250 (don’t lift it by the arm)
grinder – $50

Mobile bases are worth something individually but sold with
machines they don’t seem to add a lot to prices.

Selling prices of used machines vary regionally.

You can check what the items have sold for in
ebay auctions. Since machines are costly to ship,
generally look at auctions in major population centers
where there is bidding competition among locals.

Loren is right in line with fair prices.
I personally would fix the planer and ask around $700 to leave a little wiggle room, but as is $400 is about right

like loren said it all depends on your location and fast you want to move the machines.

You’ve already gotten solid advice. It depends on your local market, condition of the tools, age, origial quality level, etc. Wipe the dirt off, and take some good pics….a good ad always generates more attention.

Here’s my opinion:

Delta 10’’ Motorized Bench Saw (Model 36-540 Type 2) and stand
- comes with owners manual and rolling/locking base
($50-$75....it’s a “Delta”, but it’s a fairly humble saw)

Delta DC-380 15’’ Planer
- One of the rollers needed replaced. My father purchased the replacement but it never got done. Also comes with owners manual and rolling/locking base
($350-$400....fixing the roller would add $75 to $100 of value IMO)

Delta 14’’ Wood Cutting Band Saw
- comes with owners manual and rolling/locking base
($200-$275)

Jet JJ-6CSX Woodworking Jointer
- comes with owners manual and rolling/locking base
($225-$275)

DeWalt 20’’ Scroll Saw and Stand
- comes with owners manual
($200-$250)

Delta 8’’ Bench Grinder (Model 23-840) and Delta Grinder Stand (Model 23-320)
- comes with owners manual
($50)
