Tool Disposal Program

Tool Disposal Program 

Here are examples of why you could use this program:

“My Uncle died and I am taking care of the estate.  I don’t know the value or how to disperse of his woodturning hobby.”

“My wife was an avid woodturner, but is no longer able to turn.  Can you help us sell her tools?”

“I need to downsize – could your club use any of my woodturning tools?”

“I inherited woodturning tools. Can you help me sell them?”

Maybe the Arizona Woodturners Association (AWA) can help.

The AWA has a Tool Disposal Assistance Program for our members to help relatives and friends when it is time to downsize or sell woodturning items.

This program may be available to non-members on a limited basis.  Please contact us to see if we can help.

We can do a sale for a widow to sell items.
