New to forum -introduction

Hello and thank you for allowing me to join your forum.
My father was a wood worker his entire life. He passed away 5 years ago and I am just starting to sort through the tools.
There is so much there that I have no idea what it is, does, or goes to.
I am hoping with a little help we can identify a good portion of the tools and get a reasonable idea of what the value of the tool is.
I am located in the greater Seattle area.
I hope this is something that you guys can help me with, if not maybe you can point me to a forum that allows that kind of stuff.
Thank you!

So you're not interested in woodworking... at all? How do you repair things around the house? Might be good to keep some of those tools...

Hi David,
I am very interested in woodworking and will be keeping a nice little hobby shop.
My father was an experienced master carpenter and owned a custom cabinet shop.
Most of the equipment I have stored in my garage is way too big for my needs.

He collected tools his whole life, so I have no space to do anything right now.

Growing up in a cabinet shop I am not completely ignorant about what is here, but some of this stuff really has me scratching my head.

Got it, Kevin! Welcome to the forum! Add your first name to your signature line and it will show in each post. Add your location to your profile, as well.

We do like photos so show us your shop, tools, projects, etc. whenever you're ready. What sort of woodworking are you planning or doing once you get some space to work and move the big tools out?

Photos of the tools will help but your local market is probably your best bet. Check pricing and price your gear accordingly. If this is larger industrial machinery you may have to broaden your search for similar tools, though.

Thanks David,
I think my projects will be more akin to jewelry boxes and bird houses than cabinets or furniture.

I updated my profile, but did not see a place for a signature line. Maybe because I am new to the forum?

Some items I am planning on keeping are a table saw, scroll saw, drill press, grinder, polisher, wire wheel, & shop smith.

I am thinking the panel saw, shaper, joiner, boring machine, Ritter R700 edge sander, disc sander, balloon sander, and a bunch of other stuff can find a new home.

Here's a puzzle I am trying to figure out.
This is a Delta product, an accessory for the radial arm saw (I think?)
To me it looks like a bunch of MDF, but it retailed for about $350.
Any idea what it is?

I have 4 radial arm saws here. 3 need to find a new home.

Looks like a nice and well lit shop area, Kevin! I have that same scroll saw - it's a good one.

To add a signature line you're better off using a computer instead of your phone. Go to User CP at the top right of this page, then choose Edit Signature in the left side panel.

Thanks David.
I built this shop for my father, most of his tools had been in storage for the past 15 years due to unforseen circumstances.
I moved everything from storage and into the shop about 8 or 9 years ago.
My brother and my father were supposed to weed through the stuff and set up a nice shop for my dad to spend his glory days in.
A combination of cigarettes and sawdust got the better of my dad. He died after puncturing a lung and it wouldn't heal.
That was 5 years ago....

I want my shop to be functional, not a storage facility for tools I will never use.

That is a table board set for a Delta Radial Arm saw. It’s in the parts list for this saw but may also be for other models too.

Delta 33-551 Radial Saw

Thanks Tom,
I was hoping someone had a picture of it installed on their radial arm saw or a brochure with parts list so I can verify all the parts are there.

Yes, more than one I do believe, and buckets full of dowells.

In general, large power tools are too heavy to be worth the cost of shipping to buyers, so you want to look at the local market. Craigslist and other local selling websites may give you an idea of what the local market is like.

I suggest you connect with the Northwest Woodworkers Association, a woodworking club in your local area. They are still active and holding virtual meetings using Zoom. Before the pandemic, they used to meet at the Rockler and Woodcraft stores in the Seattle area.
https://nwwoodworkers.org

They will be able to help you get going with your own woodworking interests. They may also have good ideas about the best way to sell your father's tools. The members should know the local used woodworking tool market. Who knows, some of the members may be potential buyers, too.

Thanks for the tip Tool Agnostic!
At the moment I am sorting through tool catalogs, price sheets, reciepts, parts lists, and instruction manuals.
Some dating back to the early 1960's.
Many are from the Rockwell dealer, Buckner Weatherby, and Star Machinery.
I think my father had an account at every tool store in the PNW.

He must have been an 80's cabinet maker. I haven't used a dowel machine since the early 80's

I think his cabinet shop was active from the early 70's until the early 90's.
There are several biscuit joiners. Lamello, Porter Cable, and I think a Black & Decker too.

Whats the primary goal? Clean out the shop, or get the most money from it?

The first option could be done fairly quickly, the latter may leave you with a unusable workshop for another 9 years.

Just because something cost 500 when it was bought, even if its still in its original packaging does not mean its worth that now. Your not dealing in antique car parts.

So keep that in mind when you list the tools.
