I was recently at a garage sale where I managed to purchase a number of high quality woodworking hand tools that are in almost new condition. The sale was being held due to a marriage break-up and the prices were so low I couldn’t pass them up. Included were things like a mortise marking guage in rosewood and brass, sliding bevel guages in rosewood, brass and stainless steel, spokeshave in rosewood and bronze, Japanese laminated chisels, etc. Most of these came from Lee Valley Tools in Canada and are currently retailing for US$30 to US$90 per piece.
Many of these are duplicates for tools I already own or tools I would seldom use. As a consequence, I would like to sell them on the internet. I need some guidance on where best to sell. eBay doesn’t seem to have an obvious category for modern high quality woodworking handtools. In most categories I looked at this stuff would get lost among the 17,000 ads for $2.99 router bits and the like. I’m also not aware of any other sites that might be more appropriate. Does anyone have suggestions on best categories to use on eBay to sell these tools or on other good sites to sell used woodworking hand tools?
