no previous part Part 1 of Small Shop build in AZ ( from moving it?) series Part 2: Selling My Arm...Selling My Shopsmith, Not in the Club anymore. »

So the big plan is on. One photo is the Current one car garage here in PA, shop #5 since 2013. See my home page for more. Moving at the End of the Calendar year. Sell as much as you can of the big stuff. Not just the home stuff as we own a home already in Glendale,AZ. Thanks to all who have commented on any ideas and shop ideas I asked about before. So this is really like starting over. The main stationary tools sold at the yard sale and not really my worry to get big bucks for them as some were used and of age anyways….what do you ask for a homemade router table and reconditioned router? Now it served me well and should run for many more years, so to me getting $25 for it was the goal. Was I happy, was it my goal to not have to run craigs list ads and get scammed and negiotiate with some ” tool expert” no… the new owner left happy, I had the cash and so went also the used craftman miter saw. the compressor. the tool chest. and some few portables I was not taking. Now the clamps started at a pile of 21, since I was a business you have clamps, and thats the bar clamps. Now I have 6, they get packed to go. In the photos is both the surprise and painful cash gain. I had hardwood lumber to sell—-yes you should have been here…60 short oak pieces 40” plus, 30 cherry planks,8 some walnut planks and then some 25 plus strips of maple from a buy for $15….all sold for the asking price of $60. the buyer and seller were both pleased. my goal of getting the garage shop empty was a success and I have some maple to take with me. The vacant space told me I really had been busy 5 years collecting that wood and not so busy making projects. Another lesson learned, Clean out every now and then and feel better. Buyer #2 is buying the Norm Abram workbench for $50 and I have sketches and plans for the new bench to fit the new Shop already there….Workshop 6 my 8 by 16 Tuff Shed. Next for Sale is a Shopsmith 510 and 4 SPT. Inquires??? $1200
