Best Place To Sell Used Tools


Where is the best place to sell used Festool tools? I will try Craigslist locally, but is there a good on-line site or somewhere to contact?

eBay by far is the best place, they will pay stupid prices for festoon stuff

May also try Facebook Marketplace. I have better luck on there than CL selling just about anything. Offerup is another one similar to CL but phone app based.

Seems like eBay/PayPal fees are nearing 50%.

I've offered it up a couple times. My systainers aren't the prettiest because I toss them around but the HKC one isn't as bad as some others.

I can't sell my damn Carvex and bases either.

Granted I haven't put much effort into either. At some point I need them, forget that I wanted something else and don't want to sell them until they are in the way of something else again.

A lot of people complain about the Carvex, I have the corded and cordless, after a warranty repair on the corded they're both great saws.

I have the base kit also, use it often for circles.

You stated you had the same stuff as Dan, sanz the bags, I made you an offer based on your "offer". No wonder why you can't sell it, you keep changing the "scope".

My original offer still stands. Don't accept it in the next 5 minutes and the offer is rescinded
