Looks like I am going to have to move and decided to get out of woodworking all together, so I am trying to sale stuff off, starting with the biggest first. I have a Jet JJP-12 with regular head and could use some advice.

1. I have no idea what would be a fair price for it. I paid about $2000. It has only minimal use on it and in fine condition. Is there rule of thumb here?

2. Bigger problem is the thing is heavy and bulky. About the only way I can sell it is if someone comes and picks it up. How are big items like this usually handled?

I could use a little advice here from those of you who have sold large items like this. It would be much appreciated.

Of course, if anyone is interested to buy, let me know. I live in Morgantown WV.

1) half. You might get more auctioning it off on ebay.
2) buyer handles it but if you have it in a basement getting it
out may be something a buyer is not prepared to do.

I can move a machine like that myself no problem on flat ground
but going up stairs is difficult. I had a Robland 310. I took
the tables off to move it.

Thanks for the info Loren.

OK, for anybody interested, I am selling my JJP-12 for $950. It was a bit over $2000 with shipping when I bought it. It has little use and in great shape. It is in my garage on level ground so should be able to pick it up with no problem.

Looks like a great price. Good luck selling it. If I were closer I might be interested.

That price feels a bit low as a starting point for a newer machine as nice as that with little use, unless you need to move immediately. Amazon sells it new today for $2245 delivered. Depending on what the used tool market is in your area, I’d probably start more in the $1400 range. If I was looking for one today I would drive a couple hours to buy a “like new” one and save $800.

$950 seems like a good “buddy price” to fellow LJers. If I were to list on Craigslit, I would start out at $1400 “OBO” and see what you can get for offers.

Rule of thumb is half to two thirds new price. With so little use I’d go the latter.

Oh and if you sell on Craigslist- I’d recommend listing a big ticket/niche item like that in multiple, nearish cities. In your case, Pittsburgh and DC. I know if I were in the market for that jointer, I’d drive a few hours to save $1,000. Autumn is a great time for road-tripping in that area. :)

OK, put my Jet JJP-12 for sale in craigslist for $1400 OBO. There was a warning on Craigslist about counterfeit cashiers checks that will clear the bank but I would be held liable when the fraud was detected. First, I don’t understand how I could be held liable for such a thing, and second, what is the recommended way to make such a transaction? If I can’t even rely on a cashiers check, I guess the only thing left is cash in hand. Any suggestions?

Cash in hands for sure. I’ve sold and bought many things on Craigslist. ONLY do cash in hand!!!! Too many people out there looking to rip people off. I’d also only sell to locals (if possible)

-- Hey you dang woodchucks, quit chucking my wood!!!!
