    My Dad is thinking of selling his metal working machinery (light industrial type contraptions for different types of machining). These are hefty old machines and so not something you want to move around.
    Are there specialist sites or auctions for this type of stuff that someone could point me to? eBay will be our very last resort.

    You could try ‘Home and workshop machinery’ in Footscray, Sidcup.
    Check out their website for an idea of what they sell.
    Chris and Steve are very helpful and may be able to point you in the right direction if its not the sort of machinery they buy.
    I think they normally get their stock from schools, colleges, ex mod etc.

    That sounds like it could be spot on and it is not a million miles away. Thank you.

    I’d start with your last resort. Save a lot of time. Easily the best place to get it to a wide audience and sell for a good price

    If they are hobbiest machines I think you will find ebay will offer the highest price.

    A colleague used this website to sell a larger machine http://www.lathes.co.uk/page3.html/

    This site also has classifieds http://www.model-engineer.co.uk/classifieds/

    Pics? If they are big old lathes or mills they probably only worth scrap value sadly.

    This is true – I got most of my machines for scrap value.

    That is more options for us to look into – thank you. I think they sit more towards the industrial end of the spectrum than hobbyist, it took four of us to move some of them into his workshop!

    Usual tool forums and Gumtree I would imagine. Christ even here would be a good punt if scrap is being considered.
