  • New or Second Hand

    Tool purchasing : - New preferred with a warrantee, but more expensive. Or good second hand items, no warranties, but much cheaper?

    I have access to a lot of 2nd hand tools, would it be worthwhile listing them or off to the nearest pawn broker ?

    Do any members rent tools a lot ? Query for offline business.

    Please list them fist - maybe put a reserve price on or make them Buy Now's. I see that most of the tools on wednesday & friday auctions is quite popular.
    I am always in need of some more tools - as long as the quality is ok!

    PS. I don't think a pawn broker will give you what they are worth.

      Pawn Broker

      They normally don't, but I've inherited quite a lot of tools and they clutter up the garage and never get used.

      I will definately list then - only good quality stuff.

                            Hi Steve - I've got over 200 items listed at the moment and battling to keep track, so I'm waiting a bit to branch out - may get hubby to list them under his user so they don't get mixed up with all my goodies.

                            I'll post a link when ready for bidding. I see we have another seller also looking at selling 2nd hand tools - looks interesting.

                              Hi Caz,

                              Just make sure what tools hubby lists, so that you don't end up the loser.
