I'm cleaning up the second of two estates in the past few years, there are 1000's of new and used tools.
We are getting, at auction, GOOD prices for GOOD tools, real good for older US brands that are now made "in the land of the little people"
A few things doing very well are VISE GRIP USA and MILWAUKEE items that are now made over there. Also older namebrand wrenches,& most RIDGID items
Sat. a Cigar sized box of used bits, brought about what I'd wanted to give for that amount had they been new.
Out of the other estate had some NOS USA fractional twist drills that rang the bell, but were still a good buy for buyer [a machine shop] I haul ,lot out ,and set it up, I DON"T RUN UP OR SET THE PRICES.

Knowledgeable buyers who are also current tool users represent a small subset of the whole American population, but your experience with this situation probably has more relevance to the original poster's question than my answer did. My experience with garage sales, secondhand stores, etc. leads me to believe that there aren't enough knowledgeable buyers to keep the prices of great tools much higher than the price of total junk.
