Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw drill press jointer radial arm saw shaper

I inherited the vintage woodworking tools (see below) from my father-in-law 12 years ago. Despite my good intentions, I’ve only used the band saw and drill press; and then only for repair projects.

We’re getting ready to sell our house and downsize to a place without room for the tools.

Does anybody have any suggestions for how to sell, where to sell and for how much these items should sell for? I’d like to sell as a “shop” rather than parcel them out.

They all need maintenance; two need to have some rust removal. All were used almost daily (until 1989) by a skilled craftsman who was an equally skilled physician by day.

Craig’s list, forget about selling them as a group its not going to happen unless you are willing to just dump them for 25% of what they are worth to someone who will in turn re-sell them individually at market price. Your tough sale is probably going to be the radial arm saw there are tons of them for sale including vintage. I just purchased a vintage Rockwell 14” radial arm saw for $150. The rest would probably sell quickly if priced to move.

-That DeWalt RAS does have some followers and could probably fetch $200-250- IF the right buyer crossed its path. But RASs aren’t particularly popular machines these days,

-The bandsaw is probably worth $200

- Drill Press $100

- The jointer might be worth $100 if its a 6”. If its the 4”, it might be worth more as scrap/boat anchor.

- I couldn’t find a pic of the shaper. If its a small, tabletop version, that would be hard to sell. If its a floor standing version, it might fetch $200.

Of course, this is what I think they are worth, in reasonably good condition, on the Washington DC Craigslist (my area). If they need a lot of work and/or you’re trying to sell them in a smaller market….the values could be less.

When you post this stuff for sale (try other woodworking forums as well) be sure to list where you’re at to avoid a million questions that ask that very thing. BTW, where are you located?????

I just bought the same model Dewalt Powershot Radial saw, it is in MINT condition with all the attachments but no manual. Does your saw have one? I can’t find one anywhere it seems there were not too many manufactured of this model. Or, no one is selling them this saw cuts like a dream and is so solid even has all the original dado blades in their boxes, guides, T&G etc. I wonder if the 68 at end of model number signifies the year??? Thanks

”....a place without room for the tools.” What will you do with your time? I can’t imagine such a place.

Did you ever sell the drill press? I’ve got the same model and would give my neighbors first born for the owner’s manual and I’d buy it for the extra parts
