second hand tools

I've just been offered eight turning tools, amongst them is three gouges, ascraper etc second hand. they are eight years old and some surface rust which will clean with use. The question is, how much? Anybody any ideas on price in english money.

Bit tough in some ways as they could be good quality tools or just cheap tools, see what the make is and go do a google search for there prices, or to one of the craft supply houses.
Try and get the guy to give you an idea of how much he wants, the point is you want them as cheap as pos.
Its hard to say as you give no sizes, and turning chisels can go up in price with size, and quality of meterial.
You can get a set of cheap turning tools from machine tool and ebay for £10.00 so there is no knowing what the tools are you are on about.
If there not the cheap chisels then offer him 10 see where it goes. LB..

second hand tools

Thanks LB managed to get the lot for £5 per tool, and made of carbon steel. I appreciate your input and think I've now got a bargain and enough tools to last know. Thanks for that
