View Full Version : Ukulele Build Tools For Sale (Large Lot)

03-21-2015, 12:31 PM
Hi all, really wasn't sure where to post this thread, the marketplace seems the most appropriate but I think it may be also suited to the luthiers lounge.
Basically, as I stated in another thread I had to reluctantly part with my ukuleles due to some financial hardship, but had lots of tools and a few bits of wood and hoped to build my own eventually.
Due to a change of job it's now becoming apparent that time is going to be an issue so I have reluctantly decided to part with the building stuff, with the hope of raising enough funds to buy myself a ukulele. I really can not be bothered with listing everything separately on the usual auction site so would prefer to sell as one lot, hopefully there's someone out there looking to start building and this lot will get you well on the way.
Everything is unused, apart from the LMI circle cutter which I have tested once. If you add this lot up to what I paid its well over a thousand.
I'm asking for 600?
Get in touch if you're at all interested. I would happily consider a trade for a nice ukulele. Its been tough not having one!
I will add pics asap, just wanted to get an idea if its possible to shift everything in one go. Collection from Hull UK is easiest but I could send in a couple of parcels within the UK.

Here's the (long) list.
