Topic tags/keywords: powermatic planer tablesaw tools question

I bought a home from the estate of an avid woodworker, furniture maker and craftsman. He had a meticulous workshop in his basement which has a ton of tools and included a Powermatic 66 tablesaw and a Powermatic 15 planer, both in like new condition. Both tools have serial numbers that begin with 03 which, based on my research, would indicate they are 2003 models. The tablesaw serial number is 03040660770. The planer is 03020152316. The tablesaw has a Jessem Rout-R-lift with a vacuum attachment and an Accu-fence guide. I’m going to sell both of them but don’t know where the best place to sell something like this is and how to price them appropriately (it looks like both of them new are in the $3500 to $4500 range. There is quite the range out there for used equipment but most of the stuff I see is older and not in the same condition. Any suggestions/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

2003 would be a good guess, but those are not standard Powermatic serial number formats… for example, on the table saw – the first two digits should be the last two digits of the year, and the next two should be “66”, indicating a model 66 saw, and the remaining numbers is the actual sequential serial number.

It may be a good idea to post your location and some pics. If you’re looking for buyers, this might be a good place to start.

Agree with Ripper

Also, the resale market on things like this varies significantly by region so, even if there isn’t someone local here who wants to buy them, there may be someone local-ish who can give you a better sense for the market in your area
