Store ‘em. If you keep they you’ll have them all when you’re ready to set up your shop again. If you sell them you’ll likely spend the money and when you set up your shop, you’ll be back to buying one new tool at intervals when you need and can afford it. If you want to upgrade, you can sell then.

Not a tool, but when my plane (a 1941 Taylorcraft) need more work than I could afford, I disassembled it and stored it in the garage. There it sat for about 15 years while family took precedence over flying, but even when we were broke I hung on to it, my rule was that I would either restore it, or sell it only to buy another plane (which is what I eventually did).
