What is this wrench set worth?
« on: March 10, 2020, 07:00:16 PM »
Bought this off Marketplace; mostly mastercraft bits, westwood, a few stanley, and some MAC.  toolbox is a nice size and has 3 drawers and a top shelf, Beach; canadian brand. What should I ask for this? I've been offered $200.

I wouldn't give you $200 for it because it looks like kind of a mismatched assortment of well worn tools, probably some sizes missing, etc.
Was going to say $100, before I saw you $200 offer.    If you don't need them I'd take the $200.

Agreed with the above advice.

Unfortunately for you, $200 will buy you a very comprehensive set of mid-tier tools that covers at least 95% of what you've got there, plus the knowledge that all the right sizes are included.

Heck, I could walk into a hardware store and buy a few sets of box wrenches, a basic socket set, and some misc accessories for less than $200 and have at least 80% of what I'd need to do most jobs.

You might come out slightly ahead selling 'lots' of that collection - try and bundle 5-8 wrenches (common size, all imperial or metric and not a mix), as complete a set of sockets, a set of extensions, etc. for $5-10 a pop.

Unless there is something particularly interesting or old in there, I'd take the $200 and run.

All of those tools are run of the mill box store quality tools, except whatever the MAC pieces are.  You might be able to sell those separately for a little premium compared to the rest, but I doubt it would be worth the time.

I'd take $200 if I were selling those tools.
