Getting rid of old tools
 
Hi. Anyone know if there are any places that recycle old tools? I was just cleaning out my dad's shed and he has a ton of extra tools that has been collected over many years. Stuff like screwdrivers and that sort of thing. I'd hate to just throw them away

You can send them to me, I'll put them to work

Put them on e-bay or craig's list? Yard sale? Donate them to a volunteer organization like Habitat for Humanity?

In my area is a store called ReTool. It will buy used tools and then resell them. First place I look for a tool that I might use only once.

Have a yard sale and get rid of some other items that are collecting dust!

There are places called 'Tool Libraries" that are starting to catch on that will loan tools to people, much like a regular library loans books. check to see if there are any of these in your area

Habitat for Humanity has ReStores you could donate them to.

old screw drivers @ wrenches @ sockets make great filler metal when welding large gaps.:furious:

I take my stuff to Goodwill and get a tax deduction.:thumbsup:

Freecycle or Craig's List - I'd bet you get rid of them lickety-split.

I kinda had much the same problem when I had to get rid of a body.

I just waited until it got dark and dumped it in the river about 20 miles out of town.

Would that work in your case?
