I’m with ya AGuy. I have been selling off most of my mechanics tools and equipment, I’ll never be able to use them again. I don’t want to leave my widow with that kind of mess to deal with. Probably wont be too long before the woodworking stuff goes.

I hear ya on leaving a widow with a ton of stuff to deal with papadan. Have been working for weeks on helping clean out a friends basement shop, a mess of epic proportions.

There are 3 groups of stuff I worry about my wife having to deal with if I go: my woodworking tools, my mechanics tools, and my guns/reloading stuff. So I have extended family members who are designated to get each pile. They are interested in that are, for example my nephew is a big woodworker, so he gets the entire contents of the wood shop. At least that way the tools (and other stuff) will be handled without hassling my wife.

My Dad was an Auto Body mechanic for decades. He had all his own tools at work and at home.
As he got older, he swore he would no longer do side work at home.
To re-enforce this, he sold off all his tools he kept at home.
He “burned the ships” as it were. Now he had an excuse to tell people. (I can’t do the side job ‘cuz I don’t have tools)

It wasn’t even a year before he had to buy back all his tools. He’s long since retired, but, I think his tools are all still in his garage. They largely go unused.

AK- I am glad that you posted this. It is getting more of a response than mine:) The tools that I mentioned are treasures of my past; but I do not use them. Have not used them in years; for example the wood lathe and its toys-
Brand new costs are around $1,800 and just sitting in the shop. To me I would rather see them go to someone, that will put them to good use. In return I would like a fair price; I am guessing around $850. Will I miss them, yes.
I guess what I am trying to say is- it is time to let go of somethings. Again thanks for listening.

I never got to retire from work. I worked for 40 years and am now disabled. I wish I could be working every day but my days are numbered. I know I can’t do the heavy mechanical work I used to do, but still miss all my tools and equipment I used to have. Something about just seeing them in the garage comforted me in knowing I had them and knew how to use them. ;-(

Sorry about your disability. I just retired on the last day of 2016 (73 yeas old)(a little over 7 months ago). I had a good job and actually like going to work. If fact if I could I’d go back tomorrow. The only reasons I retired was my body just got too old the do the work any more. If I could physically do the work Id go back tomorrow.

Just the other day I use my track saw that I have not used for more the 2 1/2 years. I deemed it as the best tool for the job and glad I had it. The older I get the easier I like it and good tools make for easy.

This has been an interesting discussion. Perhaps all of us “old guys” think about the eventual disposition of our stuff, whether it’s our tools or our creations. My wife often urges me to ask my kids what they would like – now! My thought is “why burden them with more stuff?” Their garages are full of their own stuff. They should not add to their stuff simply because “it belonged to Dad.”

One of the best lessons I learned in this life was to let go of past activities when they are passed. I was a gymnast, but I quit doing flips or giant swings. I was a mountaineer, but I’ve kept only memories & lists. I was a magazine editor – now I just complain about peoples spelling on sites like this.

Now I’m 86 and plan to be around many more years. I’m working on disposing of all my stuff before I die, but I don’t know when that’s coming so I have to keep the “essentials.”

so true about “dads stuff”,when my dad passed i did get all his tools and love having and using them but i also inherited some very expensive bamboo fly rods that i realized id never use so i had to put the sentiment away and sold them.at first i felt bad but it made no sense to keep.so i agree when the time comes ill do my best to unburden my heirs from things they would not know how to deal with.

I’ve only gotten rid of tools to relatives. Old table saw when I got my new one. a scroll saw when I came across a dewalt for a song on craigslixt, Stuff like that. A few years ago I did a cleanout and offered to send tools to anyone on LJ’s who wanted to pay the postage. I sent a bunch of saw blades and one of those nice myltilayered boxes of Brace bits among some other stuff. Just interested in finding a second life for them or new homes.

I have sold so many tools over the years I cannot keep track, but I went through this selling it all off when we were moving from the house we had built to the one we are at now. I had stopped doing trades work and didn’t really use the shop that much. We had a great big auction, drew over 1000 people on a rain soaked day, and sold it all to the bare walls. I didn’t sleep a wink that night. It was like all my kids had left, and were just gone, gone, not like away for a while, gone. Since I have repurchased everything I need for a shop to do what I want to do, and thats a lot. It cost a lot more the second time around too. That is my reason for never selling it all again, at least while I am kicking.

My Wife has the green light to pull a woodworking auction again, but only after I am cold. The auctioneer we have always draws a crowd, gets you top dollar, and it’s a complete hands off situation for her. I can’t tell you the number of guys I have known who exited before me, and it would break my heart when their wives would call and say XYZ said to call you about the tools when he was gone. For much of my life I have been “the kid” now I’m 64, still able to get to it, but for how many more years?

Thing is, while this conversation is usually about older, it need not be. Crappy things happen to young people. You should have a plan, and not just about your tools.

Great advice. When we made our Living Trust, when our lawyer was asking us “who gets what”, it really made us think. We actually involved our kids. They wanted some of the bigger furniture pieces etc. None wanted any of my tools. So technically speaking our executor gets to sell all of my tools. But we got a good lawyer who allows an annual review and changes etc covered in the initial price.

At his point at age 58 I am still able to use all my “stuff” – ww tools, mechanics tools, guns & tools & reloading equipment, motorcycles (my true love). Ive spent a lifetime dreaming about doing certain things and fulfilling those dreams, with more to come. I have lists of most all my “stuff”, with date acquired, cost, supplier, etc. When I become incapable of using “stuff”, the plan is my son 1st then relatives will get a chance then it goes for sale. If something happens quickly my son takes it all to do as he pleases – use, sell, give away. He has access to my lists so has a starting point for value.

I”m presently dealing with a similar issue, i’ve been an avid gun collector since i was a youngster on the ranch, now at 71, my eclectic collection is presently being reviewed by me to down size, meaning i need to get rid of well over a 100 units, both long guns and pistols, some antiques, a lot of doubles and parts, as one can guess i bought similar units to repair and bring the ’’Old guys’’ back to the real world of shooting.

can’t even to begin on the tools, have owned a const. co. for 42 years, hehe, getting ready to slow down some, so am also getting rid of trucks, trailers, hand tools, power tools, and stuff.

hard to let a good tool go by, i still have my original hand tools i picked up when a apprentice back in 1973 when i got home from my government duty, best thing i ever did to rid myself of the demons, get focused on a carreer and never look back.

hehe, most don’t even know what some of these tools are when i showed them pics. hehe
best of luck withe down sizing hard to do, at least in my case

I don’t know when my time to go will be. About eighteen years ago, the “experts” made it three to five years.

I still play and, probably, will for a while. Still, if I went tomorrow, my poor wife would have to deal with the usual BS of people trying to convince her the cabinet saw (with over arm dust collection, tenon, box joint and other jigs and blades)/ carver / bandsaw A or B / . . . . are worth fifty bucks. Then there are the little things, like the $130.00 calipers (hey, going to a year and the battery is still good) that someone would offer her three bucks for, the Festool sander they’d offer her twenty for and so on.

For these reasons, I started a binder with photos and purchase prices, with the occasional note or suggestion. The items are categorized, to ever reasonable extent possible (e.g., painting, sanding, cutting, shaping, plating, polishing, grinding, dust collection, . . . .).

At fifty percent off, a lot of the toys would be gone in a month, at most (a Festool in days), and she could take a trip. A REALLY nice trip.

I’m amazed, though I shouldn’t be, at how many of you are thinking the same things about tools and being older. I’m 71 these days, and in decent health, but have begun to consider where the mechanic’s tools, woodworking gear and reloading gear will eventually go. I was using my co-favorite #4 handplane (bronze Lie-Nielsen) the other day and realized that when I was gone, the wife would probably sell it for 50 cents at a garage sale. That’s an awful thought.

AK
I’m very sorry to hear about your diagnosis you have been a great contributor here with your vast knowledge of woodworking, I hope the doctor is not correct.
As far as your tools are concerned you know best what the value of your tools are in the market place you’re in better than probably the rest of your family. If it were me I would at least sell most of the tools I don’t use or if you feel it’s time to sell them all to save your family that task.
I’m in my 70s also and have compiled a list of my tools and what I think their values are so if something happens to me my wife and children will at least have a starting point of their value.
God bless

I swear I’ve seen Charles post within the past few months but can’t find anything. What’s odd is that if you look for Charles and sort by date, there are a lot of posts that have been touched in some form in April, but if you click on each of the links, there’s nothing there to indicate anything happening recently. Wonder if there are responses that are disappearing? Trying to be positive that his commenting history is wrong. He seemed like a great guy from what I’ve seen in the past.
