Hello, All,

Have to downsize for now, so I’m giving up my woodworking machines—all Delta/Rockwell.
First, does anybody know what are reasonable prices for these?
Table saw, wood lathe with duplicator and compound, jointer, band saw, shaper, drill press, disc/belt sander and a non-working scroll saw.
I’ve attached pictures.
Thanks very much.

First question is where are you located? Price will partially depend on location.

Hi Larry I don’t know your situation and if your planing to return to wood working in the future. If you are I say hold on to them just from the pictures of you tools these tool were made in the USA. What I mean is you won’t find tools like these that where built to last and have quality. Now with that said and you have to sell them I say you could get a good price for them to the right buyer. One thing you have going for you is that Delta wood working tools built in the USA In my opinion are sought after and your tools look like you took care of them . I could not say what price you could put on them but I would go on craiglist in your area and see what other used tools are sell for and then take into account what you have price them that way good luck woodman.

Quality machines, good condition, it seems you can play a bit of hardball. Good luck!

If you decide to sell, clean ‘em up to a pristine level (no dust, schmutz, etc.) before you pic/list ‘em.
I see lots of machinery listed that looks as if they were used in a rock quarry. The clean look will certainly help with the visual appeal.
