Where to advertise.

Discussion in 'Design and technology' started by DTTech, May 20, 2011.

  1. If you had one for sale, where would you advertise a Hepa/filter/fume extractor for a laser machine?
    Its not the sort of thing i've had much of a need to sell before. I dont think it would be the sort of thing to chuck on ebay.
    I'd hate to see it sit around for years doing nothing.
    Maybe admin on here should consider a 'resources for sale' section, so schools could sell/swap or even freecycle such things.

    I'd think ebay would be okay. Might be needed by a small business? x
     
  3. I've been having the occasional look on eaby over the past 6 months and havnt come accross another one. I suppose that could be a good thing in one respect but I think it may be a bit to specialised.
    On the other hand, what is there to lose [​IMG]

    You've already advertised you have one for sale to the type of people who might be tempted. Schools with small budgets to buy a laser cutter might jump at the chance of getting a secondhand one. Start another thread called Laser Extraction for Sale and see what happens.
    Contact the company that sold it to you or the others in the business to see if they would like it back. They won't give you a lot for it but might exchange it for spare parts or part of a service. One of the problems you'll have in selling it is the delivery issue. A laser company would probably have a van passing near your school at some stage in the not too distant future and be happy to collect it.
    Join a forum for other laser users such as signmakers and architectural modelmakers and advertise it there. Find out who's making acrylic jewellery or offering engraving services and write to them.
    Don't expect a lot for it as it will need replacement filters which are a significant part of the cost of a new machine.

    Did you manage to sell the machine in the end?
    Just curious!
     
  6. Nope, still have it.
    The list of stuff we are selling has grown quite considerably.
    Is it something you are interested in - or just curious as to where I managed to sell it.
