Homecraft Jointer-Planer

by Paul Moschetta
(Pittsburgh, Pa. USA)

I am not certain of what specific questions to ask. My father, who is now deceased, enjoyed woodworking and unfortunately, neither I or my brother have any interest. I say this because, Dad has a workshop and garage complete with anything and everything. All operational, and all antiques or vintage tools, and none of which I have any value on, since I am in the process of researching each to sell.
Of one item, he has a Homecraft Jointer-Planer, and Delta Milwaukee table mount band saw. He also left us a D/M-Rockwell 17" Industrial 4 speed Drill Press.
The press itself is heavy in terms of weight, and has a adjustable table. The band saw also has an adjustable table, and all are motor direct driven. The other item, I am in question of, is a Craftsman Table Saw, that of the research I have discovered, was manufactured around 1952 and remains in excellent working condition. Is there a demand for antique woodworking machines?. This is another question.
The lone machine that has never been used, and is in fact still in it's original box, is a Craftsman Radial Arm Saw, which he purchased when I was a senior in high school, 1973.
Any information or help determining value would greatly be appreciated
