Hello everyone.
Disclaimer: I am not a woodworker.

Recently my father passed and left a large number of tools to me. He had gotten into wood working in the last 10 years or so and had a garage full of table saws, jointer, drills, sanders etc. I know almost nothing about them and was hoping someone could help me value a few of the tools. I’ve tried looking things up on google but a lot of the tools are older models (in great condition) so there really isn’t any reliable pricing out there. I’d keep the tools and start learning the craft but I simply don’t have the room :( Any help would be appreciated.

The first thing is the Craftsman 12” Band saw-Sander. I’ve seen several models (not craftsman) that look identical form-factor wise but have a huge disparity in price. Like $150-$1500??? Can anyone give me a decent guesstimate on value? Thank you in advance :)

I’d say the $150-$200 range is good, only because of it’s new condition.

I have one of those saws. It is an OK saw. Ask $150 take a $100. It has a resaw capacity of about 5” but not enough power for that. The guide system is not very good. Aluminum table.

I figured as much. Thank you all for the input. I understand it can be annoying to have newbs HALO in for pricing questions. My dad loved his craftsman though. He also had THIS craftsman jointer-planer. It’s from 1985, that’s about all I could find on it. Is it right in the same ball park as the bandsaw pricewise?

PS: This thing scares the crap out of me.

I wouldn’t go less than $200 on the jointer. It’s all there and well taken care or, maybe clean the rust off the table and fence with wd40 and 0000 steel wool before you post it.

That bandsaw has a bad reputation. You see them around here starting at $130 and they take a long time to sell. I wouldn’t hold out for top dollar. Can’t help with the jointer.

Both tools are quite common on the used market. I used to have the 12” band saw. It’s a decent saw. It doesn’t have much power, as mentioned above, but it’s serviceable. I’d say ask $125 and take $100. The jointer is also serviceable at best. The tables are incredibly short (basically bench top sized). I’d expect to get $150 for the jointer, give or take. You’d do well to get $250 for both.

Thanks for the input everyone. Most of the other stuff I was able to find equivalent pricing because its newer equipment. However, there is a 10” Craftsman table saw that is difficult to price. Some people say Minimum $900, others say $1400. Not sure what to ask for it. Again, its in good shape. Dad was pretty good about maintaining his tools.

That saw would be considered a hybrid saw, not a contractor saw and not a cabinet saw. You can get a new shop fox for $900 (plus tax with FREE shipping). A Shop Fox is probably comparable to a Craftsman in quality so that’s a benchmark.

I’d put $600 on the table saw and take $500. Like dhazelton said, you can get a brand new comparable Rigid for $600 or a better IMO Delta or Shop Fox (both similar to your Carftsman) for $900.

Awesome. Thank you all for the help. This has made things a lot easier. Negotiations go a lot more smoothly when you have SOME idea of what your dealing your with.

I’ve got one more thing that I THOUGHT I knew what to ask for it but I keep getting offers way below the listing.

It’s a Porter-Cable Drill Press. Lowes had it (or something very close) for $399 new. I’ve got it listed for $310, is that a pipe dream? Let me know what you think. As usual, thanks again :)

It’s a pipe dream. A good guide on used prices is 1/2 of new value always ask a little more but be prepared to go lower.
