Now on Facebook (updated post)

I have set up a Facebook group, to which any member can add or approve members. You do not have to be a "friend" to join the group. For now, this is an open group, meaning "Anyone can see the group, who's in it, and what members post."

To join just click on request to join on Facebook, or send me an email via Contact Me on this site. Activity in the group has just picked up (July 2015). It's a good way to ask questions, look for parts, and share your finds. I'm checking Facebook daily.

What is Foley equipment worth?

What is Foley equipment worth? For saw filers, setters, and non-carbide grinders, less than some sellers think these machines are worth.

For retoothers, they may be worth more than some sellers think, but only if they have ratchet bars. Here are "sold listings" US eBay prices since October 2014, without shipping:

$100 5 ratchet bars only
$165 5 ratchet bars only
$165 another 5 ratchet bars only
$200 retoother, 5 ratchet bars, 5 saw carriers
$250 retoother, 6 ratchet bars, 3 saw carriers, plus Model 200 filer, power setter, grinder
$335 retoother, 5 ratchet bars, 4 saw carriers, all very clean
$590 retoother, 7 ratchet bars, 3 saw carriers

There were several sales of retoothers without bars or saw carriers, but theses are not included because we do not know if the buyers realized what they were not getting.

This is the search.
