I have nearly every tools designed and sold by John. My financial condition would be greatly enhanced if I sold the collection. Most are still NIB and I have nearly everything. If anyone knows of someone that would like to buy the collection complete, please let know. ginawroberts@gmail.com I've got over $50K invested but I'd like to get them to a home where they will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Gina Roberts

I will definitely check into the Ebay option for values and consider listing them there individually. Some of these particular tools are listed over $200-300 on the discontinued tools page.
Thanks again.....and Merry Christmas!

Most of the tools from the first run have the signature so they aren't especially rare, although there are some rarer tools that will fetch higher amounts.

From my observation, selling tools in a group or collection result in much lower prices than selling individually. It also helps to time the sale when a particular tool hasn't been offered recently.

If it's any consolation, regular 20 year old hardware store tools would only get you pennies on the dollar, where these have held their value.

There are others not listed there. Haven't checked Ebay yet.
So, regardless of their signatures, 20+ years, condition, original boxes or authenticity certificates, you believe they have little or no added value as a "collection?"

I'm sorry about your loss.

Probably the best places to determine value would be on the bottom of this sites home page under "discontinued tools" and by looking at eBay under "Bridge City Tool." From my observations, it seems like they sell for about what they went for new or a little more.

A short list: PT1 Precision Trammel, CT1 Squevel, DC40 Dividing Compass, CS1 Center Scribe, BL9 Bench Level & many more.

If anyone reading this either knows an interested party or, themselves, are interested, please reply here.
Thank you very much.
P.S. Should anyone be able to offer any assistance in determining their value, I would greatly appreciate it! :)

I imagine you are not planning to produce another run of the connectors and extensions? I have been looking for a connector for these for some time and cannot find one. Would it be possible to get some dimensions and perhaps a picture of how this was done? I might try to make my own up.

thanks,

Dennis

Regarding 1): Yes, you are correct.

2) The connector allowed you to almost double the length of the 1 meter trammel bar, and in theory make a monster bar if one chooses. The accessory bar did not have a rule attached so it was substantially less money. I will post the cross section dimensions here in a week or so (out of the office as I write).

3) I don't know how many we sold, but it was a cool size. No, we have none left to my knowledge.

That said, those trammel heads are amongst my favorite designs--

Hope this helps-

John

1.) You could get a 1 meter trammel bar (with rule and connector) (P/N 1102-067). I am assuming this is the same trammel bar as the english version except with the rule "flipped over" to the metric scale? the scale was both english and metric on opposite sides I believe?

2.) What was the connector piece? I'm assuming it allowed you to add on the 1 meter extension (P/N 1102-090)? Would it be possible to get a drawing of this? I could re-create it if it is not available from BCT.

3.) I see you also offered an 18" version (P/N 1102-091) without a rule. This would be a great size for many jobs. Did you sell many of these? Is it possible to obtain one from BCT?

Thanks!
DJ

I've been meaning to send a picture, but alas, I have been extremely busy and "haven't gotten to it yet". I also am a bit paranoid after what John said. I'm far from a pro at photography. I do have a picture, but it doesn't show the entire nut cracker (only the body). the thumb screw really makes the piece balanced and "artistic". I'll try to get something out soon. After John's comment I really feel honored to own them.

I would be happy do it. rutagerwest@yahoo.com but you may want to try it yourself, it really makes posting more fun, just open a free Flickr account and follow Michaels instructions under "posting images" in the forum. It"s not to difficult to do!
