Try facebook. I have a large local audience and have sold stuff there quickly before. Take some good pictures and write a descriptive description.

Re: Place To Sell And Trade Tools


Craigslist is a nightmare at times. Most people have stuff at such stupid prices I can go down the road and buy it new for less. But as lo as you got a fair price the stuff will go in mins not days. I listed some festool gear in there the other week. Got about 15 emails in 2 hours but the first guy said he would take the lot. But some things I have had sitting on there for months as people here didn't want to pay anywhere near what they were selling for used in other parts of the US.

Re: Place To Sell And Trade Tools


I sold all my used stuff on Craigslist you know when the right email comes it's going to go but you need to weed out the tire kickers and lowballers

Re: Place To Sell And Trade Tools


I use eBay and Craig's. I recently had a table saw on Craig's for 3 months For 150 not a call. Put it on ebay went for 300. Can't really go wrong with eBay. They need to add a sales section on here .
