Registered members only may use this section for placing free, non-commercial ads for tangible goods. What do we mean by "non-commercial?" If you're an instrument builder you cannot place a free ad here to sell or trade your instruments. If you're a dealer you cannot place an ad here to sell or trade whatever you deal in. Use this section to look for items you want as well - begin the title of your discussion with the shorthand WTB (for Want To Buy), WTT (for Want To Trade), FS (for For Sale), or FREE if you have a tangible item to give away.

Please do not use the discussion here to engage in negotiations with a seller/buyer, nor ask the other party to contact you - you should contact that person directly. Their contact info is available by clicking on their name, "profile", "PM" or "e-mail" icons in the message.

You may NOT solicit to buy or sell services, for people to give you goods or services for free, to sell more than two of the same item, or to sell more than a couple of related items!!

MIMForum etiquette is to post the asking price for the item you are selling; to e-mail the buyer/seller instead of posting a message here, which they may not see, asking them to contact you; and to respond to all e-mail inquiries. Please do not leave your potential buyer/seller hanging.

Members may also use this section to solicit other members to join them in a bulk purchase to meet a minimum order, as long as the organizer is not profiting from the transaction, and the item being purchased in bulk is not sold in smaller quantities by any of our advertisers, or the bulk purchase being organized is a purchase from an advertiser. Please remember that any such transaction is strictly between the parties involved and the MIMForum cannot be responsible for any unfavorable outcome.

Sell your item? Earn a bundle? If you would like to send a small percentage of the sum to help support the MIMForum and keep it online, we won't object! You can use our subscription form and send any amount you wish. Thanks!

Your ad should be limited to 50 words and may contain non-commercial attachments. Links to graphics (that do not display as part of your ad) are OK as long as they are not at your commercial website. Please ask the sysop to delete your ad if the item sells or you find what you want, or post a message saying "Sold" (or whatever). Otherwise the shelf-life of an ad placed here will be 60 days. If you are interested in purchasing a commercial ad, please see our ad rates page. Please do not "bump" your ad, doing so will result in its immediate removal. Thanks.

Luthier Workshop Liquidation

Postby Anthony Zavala » Mon Nov 18, 2019 2:35 pm

Hello All! Recently a friend of mine contacted me about beginning to liquidate the workshop of her late husband, who was a luthier. There are tool chests filled with gouges, chisels, saws, clamps of all types, templates for various violas and violins, as well as other odds and ends. Over the last month or two we began to chip away at the room nearly filled with supplies and tools, we have identified as many tools, parts, pieces, and woods as we can for the time being and have compiled an eBay store. There are plenty of quality tools, some homemade tools, and other tools with modifications that made his job easier. In addition to these items, there are some larger items that require local pickup in the NoVA, such as a 10" Craftsman Bandsaw, and a Gemini Carving Duplicator. That being said there is a voluminous wood collection, upwards of 100 sets, that, over the next year will be slowly be liquidated. There are other instrument accessories listed as well such as several cases and gig bags. It is my understanding that at some point soon the collection of cello wood will also be liquidated.

While I wish the circumstances were better, I come to you with these listings. Please take a look and see if anything catches your eye. All proceeds will go towards his wife and two daughters. Thank you again for looking, even if you find you don’t need anything!
