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

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.

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

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

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?
