Topic tags/keywords: router question

I am going tomorrow morning to purchase a jointer from a fellow who is disbursing his shop. He also has a router table with a pc 6912 router and a lift with an Incra fence. When I asked what kind of lift it is he mentioned Woodpecker. I have an idea it’s going to be nice but I’m having trouble figuring out an appropriate offer. I know the information is vague but does anybody have an idea?

The lift could go for as high as $350 new (PRL V2). The fence could go between $200 and $350 new (wonderfence and all the accessories like the jumbo right angle fence, stops, etc.), and the router almost $200.

I would be happy to get 50 cents on the dollar for used equipment so you do the math.

I’d offer 150 and pay 250.I always let the seller tell me how much he wants first, they may want to sell it for less then you would pay for it.

so,according to Brad,all items new:$350 +200 +200=$750 and you suggest to the OP to offer the seller $150?
that’s extreme low balling if you ask me.

Using Brad’s #’s and adding for the cart and mobility system ($160+50) I come up with a new price of about $900. I’m thinking of offering $300 and seeing what he comes back with.

The table top is another $100. The dust extraction box is another $100. The cart is another $250 with wheels.

So, I get a total of $1,350 new for what I can see. Not counting router bits, router insert plates, feather boards, coping sled, and god knows what else are in those drawers.

I think offering $600 is far more realistic.

I fully agree,you don’t want to insult the seller . any lower offer than $600 will most likely be ignored.

I found on the image search last night on Google that woodpecker sold the table with the mobility in it and the extraction box in around 2005 for $430. So, table $100, router $200 and fence I s $230. So a little over $900. So I think I’ll start at $300 for just that part of the package and stop when I run out of money. Thanks for your help. I’m going to try to keep it to 50%.

I’m not saying he’ll take it nor should he,but it gives you a Idea if he’s in love with it and wants new price or he just wants to get rid of it,because if you don’t buy it it will rust in the basement.If he gives you a starting price that’s a different horse.I’m just saying if he asks you how much you want to spend I start low,they counter with a high and you meet in the middle somewhere.It also depends on If you want it for your pro shop or just a nice to have tool and you don’t have to have a incra fence to do what you do.

Daddywoof,I get your point,the problem is ,some sellers don’t put a firm price because they don’t know what price they should stick with ,it is better to offer a decent starting price to show you are serious .

Ok, deal is done. $600 for the Grizzly G0656 8” jointer and $600 for the router table with a free set of bits. Now home to figure out how to unload and find room. Thanks for all your help. Everything is like new.
