My goal is to clean out the shop and make usable space.
I'm not looking to get rich, but I'm also not thinking of just giving it all away either.
I am more than happy to give someone a better than fair deal if they can use the tools and it's painless for me.
That being said I need to identify what is here so that I don't inadvertantly dispose of something I'll end up wishing I still had.

My father was a man of many talents (unlike me).
Besides being a master at carpentry he also was a mechanical and electrical genius. He has designed many of his own tools.
In the mix of the tools are a lot of pnuematic/hydraulic/electric pistons, electric motors, pulleys, relays, switches, heavy gauge wires, etc...

Some equipment is just too big for my shop and is 3 Phase, I do have a phase converter installed but I think I'd be better off selling the big stuff and phase converter and replacing it with something more appropriatte for my needs.
The 16" Powermatic surface planer is on example.

Id start by selling the larger items that you know about and that you know you dont want.

The pneumatics, and hydraulics have very little resale value to most people. Best you can do with that is post on Ebay with pictures and part numbers. You can do lot deals for small parts lumped as a package deal. Getting shipping costs for the listing would be easy enough by weight.

I agree about talking with the local woodworkers organizations. Im not to hip on Facebook and the like, but there is likely a good deal of interest that could be generated that way.

All the big stuff would be easiest to sell locally, but you will likely have to sell at a low price due to how difficult it is to move large items.

Once you move the big stuff, then you can take more time to go through the smaller stuff.

You might even contact a specialized company that deals in machinery.

This is one I found:

But realistically, if you dont know what it is, and cant find out from a simple search online, chances are you dont need it and never will. Good luck.
