SOLD Time to wrap up my wood working hobby and downsize.
JESSEM 8350 DOWELING IN CUSTOM BOX. I seldom used this but when i did it was a fantastic jig for making dowel joinery. It was so good I replaced my Festool Domino with this. Much easier to use, faster and just as strong a joint if not stronger than the the Domino. $160 for just the Jig.
PayPal plus any shipping

Me thinks you might be asking too much. You want full retail plus shipping and are throwing in a box; a box we can all make with little effort.

Good luck though.

Yes I agree with Bob above, I was going to consider buying it a week ago but googled a new one straight away and decided against it.

Why would you ask the same price as a new one?

Start at $125 and take $100.

Like I said if you don’t find value in the box and you are interested in purchasing the doweling jig you can always make me a offer for whatever you think is fair. I will respond to your PM.
Veritas charges $39 for a box to hold their Combo Plane so there must be value to some folks.

As the price of used tools get close to what new would cost I usually go for new. I have been looking for a used planer and keep seeing the same pattern of a Dewalt that is used and $50 to $100 of the new retail. When you factor in that the blades may need to be replaced it becomes a non starter.

The box looks nice and the jig seems well cared for. I think you will eventually find the sweet spot for the price.

All my tools have been well taken care of and have been stored in a heated tool room. I always clean and lube after I use any of my tools and anyone who has ever bought from me has always commented, “it looks like new”. I haven’t owned the jig that long and since I mainly made small boxes and trays it seldom got used. It literally looks like the day I bought it.
Of course nobody wants to talk about what the sales tax savings is when buying used vs new but in my State it is approaching 10%.

I was just going to let this go as I’m all for letting people ask whatever price they want, but you trying to argue with what we have been saying is silly. Full retail price is $199. This can easily be purchased with free shipping and no sales tax (not saying it’s right or legal.) I’ve also seen 10% discounts codes that can be used on this.

You are selling a used item for $1 more than full retail of a new, unused jig and you are charging for shipping. However, you are throwing in an inexpensive box and stating your jig is in good shape.

You’ve had almost 300 views and no buyers. There is a reason why this is happening. The problem isn’t the jig as it is clearly a fine piece of craftsmanship.

You can keep disagreeing all you want, but that doesn’t change the fact that your asking price is unreasonable.

I also find that when an original asking price is unreasonable, it is most often a waste of time, if not an impossibility, to negotiate a reasonable price.

Buyers on this forum are astute and educated on woodworking tools. Listing an item for sale at a reasonable price, more often than not results in a sale with little to no dickering.

Good luck and at least our comments are getting your item up to the top of the forum.

Wow I sure didn’t want to get everyone so upset about the price I was asking including what I thought was a nice box.
I’ve changed the price to $160 without the “worthless” box.

No one has said your box is worthless or poorly made. People have pointed out your pricing was unreasonable, and including the box still did not justify your asking no price. But what would I know, I only have 8 posts.

Have your say...
