Consignor Form and Information
For a Consignor Form click here (opens a PDF document which you can print; you must contact Cliff Nagle for your new consignor number) or contact Cliff Nagle (908) 328-6268. Consignor Forms must be submitted by January 1st and the tools must be delivered by the club meeting in February.
 
The commission rate is 20% for tools under $40, 10% for tools from $40 to $499.99, and 5% for tools $500 and 
over. We will consider a reserve price for items which the committee deems to have a value of at least $500. A commission will be charged on items that do not reach the reserve.
 
Do you have a very large number of tools to sell but are not the original collector (who knew what the heck they were)? The auction committee is willing and able to help. Contact Cliff Nagle to arrange a visit so we can assess & pick up the collection -- we will fill out the form and tags for you.
