I recently ran into an 82-year-old guy who is kind of in the same position, but had come to the exact opposite conclusion to Accufit. To him, everything in his shop was still worth retail (and beyond, as if it had some value as a collectable).
He got out of the business about 5 years ago, but half of his two-car garage is still set up the same way it was the day he quit. I went over to see if there was anything I needed and what he would want for it. The problem is that he couldn't let go of it. To give you an example, he had about a 15-year old set of irons and he said to me, "That was the best set of irons I ever made. I was selling them for almost $2000 in my shop, but I'll let you have them for a few hundred dollars." (Coincidentally, a set of the same irons were up for sale on this site the week before for $35 and no one was responding to the ad.) It was at that point I knew we were in two different stratospheres.
All through this encounter his wife was rolling her eyes. She had come to the same conclusion as Accufit and I think she would have been happy if I just backed a truck in and took everything away. She probably would have even paid me to do it. She whispered to me, "Steve doesn't know it, but one day I'm just going to clean this out and it's all going to the dump." I guess I should be checking their curbside garbage each week.
