Topic tags/keywords: craftsman auger bits irwin

Could someone tell me what these auger bits might be worth? It is a full set in a metal case. They don’t look to be used or used very little.

Put them up on ebay. You’ll probably get less than $40 but that’s
just a guess. Considering they aren’t used by many people
these days, supply of vintage augers likely outweighs demand.

If you run across real big ones they can fetch a good price
on auction. I guess some people collect them and the
big ones are used in timber framing.

It depends. Did you get them from your gandpa or another beloved relative? If so then they’re priceless. Others wise, maybe 10 bucks.

I think Loren has it right (maybe 45.00 tops)

You have to realize that there is a great deal of snobbery in the old tools biz – These are in nice shape—finish, metal case and all—and yet they still might not fetch what an Irwin or Russell Jennings set might bring.

(Ironically these were most likely made for Sears by Irwin)
