Default What are these shaper cutters worth?

My dad was recently give about 10 or 12 different rockwell international shaper cutters and im wondering what they are worth, some have 3/4" holes with 1/2" bushing, they came in black boxes with a blue and white label.

Without any detail, there's no way to know. The internet is your friend here. A common way to price used tools is to determine new cost and then ask for 50% of that. Have you looked at the usual places where people sell tools (CL, eBay)? However, I bet the market for used shaper cutters is pretty thin so you could be waiting a while. I'd say a shaper is relatively uncommon in hobbyist shops and pro shops don't typically by "consumables" used. Selling as a package at a further discount might help you move them.

Measure twice, cut once and CROSS OUT THE WRONG MARKS.

welcome to the forums nameless person...

are the cutter heads steel or carbide...

5 bucks for steel...
10-20 bucks for carbide...

PROVIDING they are in premium condition, not dull, chipped/nicked or worn out...

go to Ebay and you'll see...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Forget the primal scream, just ROAR!!!

Welcome Pjuarez37. I would have to agree with the previous 2 posts. I watch ebay quite a bit and those type bits often go very cheap.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
