    Default Good place to sell a machining-related item?

    Other than Ebay, what forum (or other) can be recommended to sell something used that applies to this machine shop stuff? This forum is the only one of this type that I belong too, jsyk. I see there is no "for sale" forum here, sooo .... I ask the question about where to try. .

    Thank you. Brian ...

    The link points to the "for sale" forum.
    There is a new "Classifieds" section as well.

    Don't try to sell anything Asian unless it's production equipment.

    I'd try using Craig's List first.

    Holy Radioactive Coyotes, Batman .... I hadn't even considered it. Doh!

    I haven't even looked on CL for this type of gear in the past ... why it never occurred to me is a complete unknown. Thanks for reminding me about CL. DOH!!! I'll look to see what's up there.

    Yup ... I see I'm still sharp as a marble.

    Not sure where you live but here in Ontario Kijiji http://ontario.kijiji.ca/ is very popular and has way more stuff for sale than Craig's list. I've used it on numerous occasions to buy and to sell stuff.

    I've bought an arbor press, a 8" Baldor grinder, a Baldor tool grinder, a 8" rotary table and several other items off CL.

    I really wish we could buy & sell here. I'd even donate 5% if I sold anything. It would help fund the site. I'm new here but I really enjoy & appreciate this site. It's the only machine/tool related one I visit daily. So whoever is in charge please consider it & thanks for this Great site, Eric

    Thx Mike. This sounds good. It's nothing Asian, but I'll keep that thought in mind if the situation comes up later.
