    Available from the end of October, due to retirement, a shed load of tools and equipment for the repair and overhaul of brass musical instruments.

    Would prefer to sell as a job lot.

    Original cost £15,000.00.

    Make me a decent offer and they are yours.

    I am prepared to teach the skills needed for this kind of repair work, on terms to be negotiated.

    Wow, never realised the initial outlay involved in brass repair.

    I don't believe that that is the initial outlay required and think that someone might well manage most jobs with a more limited number of tools, however all craftsmen collect tools over time to make some jobs easier and others possible. From what research I can recall from the past some tools used in brass instrument repair are expensive and are only available from outside of the UK (typically made in the US and they cost to source and import), others are just rare and if you really want them then you might have to pay the seller's price.

    If you could list the tools that would be marvellous. Also, a rough idea on the price you want for those items would be great.

    Have you sold your brass instrument? My brother has one and he is currently facing an issue with it. This is the second time he is facing such repair issues. He is now thinking to rent a new brass instrument. Is it better to rent an instrument, or we should purchase a new one? We have gone through many official site of different online music stores who have the rental facility. Please do tell us what can else be done.

    Hi
    I'm just setting up repair business and will need to kit out. I guess you've sold all your kit by now. If not we can chat about a deal. Perhaps you can let me know. Martinoliver9999@gmail.com

    Hi Martin, thank you for your enquiry. I still have all of my repair tools and equipment. I have had offers for the job lot, but nothing sensible, so I've held on to them.
    If you are interested, please let me know and I will send you a list of what I have.
    Regards
    Bob

    Hi Bob
    Thanks for getting back to me.
    Great news that your equipment is still with you and I would be very interested to discuss things with you.
    A list would be a great start so I'd appreciate that when you can.

    I'm in South Lincolnshire but in mid Wales in just over a week, which might be better for Shropshire if I need to visit.

    Thanks again and I look forward to seeing the list

    You can email it to me at brasscare@gmail.com. My mobile is 07557 053818

    Hi.
    Are you still intending to send over your list. I had assumed that because you have had previous offers you would have it to hand.

    No worries. I'll search elsewhere.
