Consider donating your tools to a qualified charitable organization. Sure, everyone can use some cash, but a donation will warm your heart and qualify for a tax deduction.

Donate your tools to a VO-TECH. Public Schools qualify as non-profit groups approve by the IRS (not for-profit schools like ITTtech). Or, how about Habitat for Humanity? Or another qualified organization that is close to your heart (the IRS has a search tool http://www.irs.gov/app/pub-78/).

You have to itemize and there are different reporting requirements depending the Fair Market Value of what you are donating (items in "good used condition or better" - thresholds at $250, $250-$500, $500-$5000, and more than $5000) check out http://www.irs.gov/publications/p526/index.html to see the rules.

In bad economies charitable organizations see marked drops in donations - so they could really use it.

Craigslist is awesome for selling tools. I've bought and sold quite a bit. Just deal in person and only in cash, and be safe doing it because there are bad people out there.

OK so many good answers it just deserves a snide one. Corner of 42nd and maple in the garage out back. Don't go to pawn shops or used tool shops. They pay little because they have to resell.

i typically use kijiji or just let buddies know what im selling. usually its tools that i bought years ago and have no use for or i have bought a newer model that i prefer.

only one thing to consider is that tool prices diminish the older and more abused they are

I only use Craigs list. I've sold many trailers, a truck, propane heaters, tools, lawn and garden stuff. Some even sold the same day I placed the add.
A rule of thumb I use is price the item at 50% of what it sold for new if you really want it sold.

Your going to have to deal with some really stupid questions.
When I list I had my zip code and tell them to do a Map Quest search before calling. I also add the closest big town to me so they can have an idea of where I am.
Everytime I get calls from someone 5 hours away wanting to know if I can meet them 1/2 way when I'm selling a $10.00 item.
I always say the price is firm and everytime they try to talk you down on the price.
One guy showed up and it took him 3 hours to decide to buy my trailer or not.
It looked brand new and only had about 200 miles on the tires.
I hooked it up to my truck so he could check the lights and it worked perfect.
When he hooked it up to his truck one rear light would not work so he started taking the whole back of the trailer apart trying to fix the light.
