Factory reconditioned woodworking tools are used tools. They are also called refurbished tools. Factory reconditioned tools were sold, used and returned to the manufacturer. Tool manufacturers refurbished, inspect, clean and test the tools. Tools are repackaged and sold through dealers at lower prices than the original equipment. The availability of reconditioned woodworking tools depends entirely on the market; if you are looking for a specific model you may have to shop around for quite awhile.


You can find reconditioned woodworking tools such as air compressors, cordless drills, grinders, polishers, nailers, planers, routers, sanders and saws.

Like other used tools, the affordability of reconditioned tools is a major benefit for homeowners, DIYers or hobbyists new to the woodworking craft. However, factory refurbished tools usually come with no warranty or quality guarantee. If you require a warranty with your tool, consider purchasing it new.

Find factory reconditioned tools online. If you are looking for a specific model, check with the manufacturer first. Brands like DeWalt, Ryobi, Hitachi, Bosch, Makita and Milwaukee all recondition tools for resale. You may be able to purchase the tool directly from the factory or you may be directed to an authorised reseller. Find factory reconditioned woodworking tools via online auctions, classified advertising, local hardware stores and even garage sales.

Be cautious when using any woodworking tools and especially when using reconditioned items. Read the instructions and do not use a reconditioned tool if you think it is malfunctioning. Use safety equipment like protective eyewear or gloves when needed.
