Old Stanley Router Bits

3406 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Cherryville Chuck
Recently purchased an old parts bin at an estate sale, and it is loaded with a lot of old router bits (over 40) in good shape. Some still coated with the protective rubber, which is quite hard now) I have tried to find out info on these on line (ebay/Google) but am coming up empty handed. Most are Stanley brand (Stanley Electric Tools, H 212, H 224, H 216), Also have some Delta Moulding Cutter Knives that have never been opened. These too are quite old. Can anyone tell me what their value might be, and possibly where to sell them (other than ebay) I am not an accomplished woodworker myself and would like to get these into the hands of someone who could use/appreciate these, and am not looking to make a fortune here.
Thanks for any replies.

Hey, Kris; old bits were High Speed bits are almost all Carbide. The attraction to the older bits for most woodworkers is almost non-existent.
Sorry for the letdown but the sad reality is they're high maintenance and of little economic value. This doesn't mean that someone somewhere wouldn't want them, but they're not worth a lot.
