    Where is the best place to sell used woodworking tools?

    I have a lot of tools to sell. Craigslist seems pretty iffy. Any places you'd recommend?

    Using the classifieds here will probably reach more woodworkers than Craigslist. Buy myself, I'd use both.
    Experience is a hard teacher; she gives the test first, and the lesson later.

    Had great luck buying and selling on craigslist. If nothing else, you meet some characters.

    That's the truth! I've met some characters which is why I'm leary.

    Re: Where is the best place to sell used woodworking tools?

    Our approach:
    Tools that would have broad appeal to the DIY public: Facebook local buy sell. Can't tell you more - my wife's domain.
    Tools that would have appeal mostly to woodworkers: 1)This site 2)Craigslist if it doesn't garner attention here
    Tools that would have appeal to a select few individuals (niche or high end): Craigslist or ebay because of the broad exposure to find the interested few.
    Priced realistically, things have sold. 60% retail if in like new condition, 50% good cond, 40% and lower - sub par condition
    Not worth effort to sell: Habitat
    If you google safe Craigslist selling you can become aware of common scams. Knock on wood, I've met only good people on every venue listed.

    Bring small stuff to the picnic tomorrow - There will be give-away desks and for-sale desks. Put a price on them and your moniker and if its a good price you won't have to take it back home with you.

    I don't think I can carry a woodmaster 712. But thank you for the suggestion.

    It would make for a great demo though. But I bet the rangers might have rules against such a thing being brought into the park.

    You could bring small, hand tools to the picnic.
    I'll gladly tell you how I do something. Just please don't confuse that with the right way to do it, and almost certainly not the only way.

    It is not a posts limit, rather a limitation on new accounts for the first 24 hours after registering. If you try again you should have sufficient privileges to post Classifieds.

    Good luck!

    One of these days we need to update the old Policy document to bring it fully up to date, but we changed the new user requirements several years ago so that there is only a one day delay before one may begin listing items in the Classifieds.

    You'll meet some characters here too if you stick around long enough!
