    Millwright Tools For Sale

    My stepfather was a millwright, but has had dementia for years and is now in a home. My mother would like me to sell his millwright tools to help pay expenses but I don't know where to start, or how to properly identify some of these tools. Tried to find a local union but no luck and the phone numbers and contact info seems to be out of date. Found this site by searching the web and thought I'd give it a try. Several of the items are made by Starrett. I'd like to sell the whole lot for a fair price, but like I said, it's difficult to know what I actually have without know what the items are called. I'm located in Fort Walton Beach, FL, feel free to contact me with any questions, maybe I can add some pictures on here or something. Thanks

    I'll have a friend of mine have a look at your post... He's a precision millwright, and may be willing to help you value these tools.

    Location means a lot. The GOOD news is it's mostly all Starrett and your dad invested well undoubtedly took pride in his craft and if he is like me he's had them long enough so that current prices have probably doubled since he bought most those tools, but I'll give you the highlights and the low end of new prices, if you get half that you are doing very very well. Lots of guys put a premium on Starrett so it's not uncommon to see list prices 50% or more what I'm giving you. To replace all that would get very expensive but what you can sell it for as a lot will be significantly less.

    The 196 indicators look like they are mostly intact and a new set in the case is around $200. (looks like there's one clamp, 2 wigglers, and 3 snugs)
    The 98 4" level is $100; the 12" is almost $200.
    The 0-1 outside micrometer is about $125, the 1"-2" is about $150.
    The inside micrometers looks like the smaller set in the case is around $200.
    The dividers are probably $50 for the inside, $75 for the outside.
    The precision square set is around $225.
    The dial calipers (hard to tell the length) 6" $75, 8" $125, 12" $200
    The adjustable parallels are $150.
    The 8 drawer Kennedy box is $325.

    Long story short I'd probably ask $1000 easy and maybe go as low as $800 (which I think would be a heck of a bargain).

    Thanks for the info MrMulticraft, I'm still looking for a buyer, I really don't want to deal with trying to list this piece by piece on ebay. Just don't have the time to list and ship everything.

    If I were you I would just take an afternoon and wipe everything down with a rag and good quality rust inhibitor. Maybe get some 0000 steel wool (but do NOT use it on any polished surface) lay it out and take some better pictures and post it on Craigslist in the biggest town close to home. Make sure you get the box too.
