Selling equipment

For woodworkers in the Dallas area I will be selling most of my equipment. Im located in Garland. If you have an interest in a Radial arm, 6 long bed jointer, biscuit cutter or other tools let me know. I know this is a bad time and short notice but I have health issues that prompt this. Many tools.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Sorry to hear about health issues. I have been wanting to upgrade my 6 inch jointer to a long bed model. If I was not up in Northern Indiana, I would be interested.

Hope you do well.

We all come to that point sometime, I got rid of my woodworking tools a few years ago with the exception of the basics to do repairs around the home.

I now tinker with model steam engines, keeps me busy and no dust to contend with, no hobby is worth affecting ones health.

Take care, and keep contributing, you have a wealth of info to share.

I am really sorry to hear about your health problems, I sure hope you recover really soon. I too am selling most of my tools just because I can't use them much now days either. Some tools I just can't let go though, I am sure you are the same way.

I think Tulsa is a little too far for you.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Ive decided to get rid of most of my stationary equipment and much of my accessories. The days of big projects is now over. This is a bad time here at Christmas to try and move used tools.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

You mention you are selling some of your tools also. Which method are you using to sell your tools? Newspaper, Craigs List or what?

Sorry to hear about your problems, I'm not very far from you but I don't need anymore tools, that being said what size is your radial arm saw? I have a Rockwell 12 inch, it works great but I wish it had a couple more inches on the arm, it cuts to 15 3/4 inch


My wife sold some stuff on Face book market place I think. It was on face book maybe not market place though and she had a bunch of buyers but only one trailer

There is no app for experience

I really haven't gotten real serious to sell many of my tools this time. I sold a bunch when I got where I couldn't work publicly any more. I don't do Facebook but my wife does and I see several things for sale on there. It does look like it would be safer than Craigslist.

I had my 4X4 Toyota for sale on Craigslist and had a lot of responses but when I said to meet me at the Highway Patrol Station, they just disappeared. I just said the heck with it and still have my truck.

Well that can work then. Maybe I can show you what I have the next time youre in the area. I think we can send a private message to setup a meeting time.

This is a sad thread.

I don't need to know the backstory, but my heart goes out to Toolman50. I hope he continues to hang out here with his friends in the forums, sharing his experience and knowledge.
