Treadle hammer value?

Recommended Posts

I know that treadle hammers and power hammers are better at different tasks, but for my knifemaking, I'm thinking I'll sell my treadle hammer once the power hammer build is completed.  I have no idea where to price this thing.  It's a commercial build, but I don't know who or where, etc.  Where should I start, price wise?  This is an old picture, before I tuned the springs to hold the head up like they're supposed to, and before I added bolt on die plates for a set of combo dies.

That is a Jere Kirkpatric (Valley Forge) treadle hammer.  Don't know if he's still around.  Google it.   He made them commercially and sold the plans and a kit for same back in the 90's and early 2000's.  They were around $700 25 years ago.  I sold mine a month after buying my first fly press.
