You have a lot of very nice tools. If I was nearby I would certainly come by to talk to you.

Why are you hanging it up?

My husband has some new health issues, I have started a new position that takes up a lot of my time and I have a son that has just started college. I have not been able to spend any time in my shop over the past year. Instead of them sitting in my shop unused I would like to see them go to someone that will put them to good use. I have so many more tools than what is shown here….if anyone is interest please let me know I can send more pictures.

Sent PM. Might be interested in your Drum sander and/or Jointer. I’m sorry to hear that happen to him. I hope you guys will have some time later on to rebuild the shop as it was a wonderful place when I visited last.

Judging by the projects you have posted I think it is a SHAME you are quitting ! You do beautiful work. Perhaps you just need a break for awhile. Let the tools sit !

^ +1, mothball your machines with enough rust inhibitor to keep the Florida air from seizing them up and get back to it when you can. Replacing all that you’ve accumulated over the years takes time and far more money than you’ll sell you current shop for. Your work looks great and you never know when you’ll be able to dive right back into it!

My shop is climate controlled… no worry of rust.
this is something that my husband and I have been discussing for the last few years….we know we will have to rebuild from scratch, plus we plan on moving and do not want to have to move all this equipment…makes life easier.

For sure if I was close enough I’d be visiting, just never works out for me. Wish you the best as you move forward.

Wow Lori. Sorry to hear of this. You’re a very talented young lady. I hope you’re not giving everything up. Someone will surely benefit. Wish your hubby the best and you too at your new position.

Sorry to hear of your husband has health issue´s. Hopefully they’ll be fixed in time.

I would encourage you to NOT sell your tools. They’ll never make them as good as the ones you’ve got. My woodworking hobby went dormant for over 20 years but I just hung on to the tools that I had collected and I’m glad I did. I’m still using tools that I acquired over 40 years ago. Tools are the best investments you can make.

You also will loose more money selling them now (unless you sell them for what you bought them for) and will have to spend twice as much to build them up again. Some of the tools (jorgensen clamps) you have aren’t available any more . Tools can be moved a lot cheaper than they can be replaced.

Hope you change your mind and keep them.

Lori, sorry to hear about your husband’s health issues. So many have already said it. Your projects look fantastic and your tool selection is very nice. Some of your tools – Jorgensen clamps – cannot be bought new anymore. And the cost to replace the tools you have will far outweigh the cost to ship. I hope you change your mind. Whatever you do, good luck and well wishes.
