What models are they? Sometimes the best way to compare their value is to check Ebay or Craigs List for the same models and see what the going price is.

Wayne and Lew have an excellent suggestion.

Also, how old are they? Even items that are not used alot will break down from age….(for example – My grandmother had a car she hardly used….I had to replace all the belts, hoses, plug wires and points…etc… when they would rot from sitting around in the garage.) All tools have items that will degrade with age – with used machines you should always determine the age…and look at the belts, mounts, hoses, and internal items (gears, etc as they may have rusted from sitting around – especially if the area they are located has alot of humidity).

My .02 cents.

Wayne Lew and Reggie, the model of the planer is a grizzly 1021 15” planer and the dust collector is a delta 50-851 2hp single phase 1500cfm. Sorry it took so long to get those

Heres the planer on Ebay.

I couldnt find a Delta 851 on Ebay or Craigs list, but there are a number of 850s (1 1/2 HP) on there that might give you a comparison.

Since the seller is a pawn shop, you need to total up the cost of the tools, new. 25% of that total would probably be what the pawn shop gave and 50% is what the pawn shop would like to get. That would be my starting point and go up from there until a price is agreed upon. I would not go over 50% of new. If the total was $1000, then our bidding range would be between $250 and $500 taking condition into account.

I do believe MrRon has the system down right.
