    Hi,

    I have had several folks ask me if I want to sell my Schacht, same model as yours but a bit older, excellent condition, lightly used by me only in a nonsmoking environment. I would only sell it if I thought it would bring me a substantial amount as I would like to replace it with a Jensen Tina ll, so, I wanted to ask what your’s went for?

    Thanks,
    Denise

    I’ve bought and sold acoustic instruments (dulcimer, violin, autoharp…) and spinning and weaving equipment. My rule of thumb is to expect an item to sell used for about 1/2 the original selling price, depending on demand. The last bit is the trickiest. For example, older heavier looms are not as popular today as small portable looms so a Schacht Baby Wolf will sell for much more than a standard, older 4 harness of the same width. The wheel you describe is very popular; that is highly desireable. I would go to weaving/spinning resell sites and get a sense on going price. My favorites include:
    http://www.kbbspin.org/ and http://herran.com/textile/discuss/ eBay is another good resource.
