The LBS I manage in Wellesbourne (near Warwick/Stratford-upon-Avon) is closing at the end of November 2019 and in addition to some bikes* and accessories some of the tools are for sale - major tools are listed here, also a lot more small specialist tools too numerous to list (predominantly Park Tool). The tools are in "good used" condition having been stored on a shadow board, used lovingly - and all less than 4 years old.

Park Tool professional workstand - with tool tray and the heavy square steel base-plate
https://www.parktool.com/product/single-arm-professional-work-stand-prs-3-2-1?category=Shop £220 [RRP is £500 - that's £350 for the stand and £150 for the base plate]

Park Tool professional wheel truing jig
https://www.parktool.com/product/professional-wheel-truing-stand-ts-2-2 and the companion tilting base https://www.parktool.com/product/truing-stand-tilting-base-tsb-2-2 £ 165 [RRP is £300- that's £249 the jig and £50 for the base unit]

Park Tool professional wheel dishing gauge
https://www.parktool.com/product/wheel-alignment-gauge-wag-4 £ 20 [RRP is £50 ]

These will be available for collection ONLY from Wellesbourne near Warwick (the workstand is heavy!) on Saturday 23, Tuesday 26, Thursday 28 November - but would have to be paid for in the shop when viewed/reserved. (Cash or card - no transfers, phone or online payments) First come, first served.

*see www.cycleroute-warks.co.uk and the SALE BIKES for the current (dwindling/updated) stock list. All the parts and accessories in the shop are discounted by at least 30% for immediate purchase and takeaway - you'll need to come to the shop, a list is not available. Likewise the tools - view/reserve/pay in the shop and then collect on the days listed.

I am happy to reserve items/bikes over the phone or by email shop@cycleroute-warks.co.uk for 48 hours pending payment. See the opening days/hours on the website.

Sorry to hear, I have ridden past many times. I guess location was a problem.
Hmm - it's not my shop and perhaps I wouldn't have opened there BUT with a brand new medical centre built across the road and a massive amount of housing development in what's already a large village + easy parking (compared to the nearby towns) then perhaps . . . . but then look at retail in general. The real frustration was the people coming in and scanning bar-codes or taking pictures and then (yes, really) sitting in their car outside and ordering online - add that to a certain online emporium that sells most Shimano components for less than the official UK Shimano distributor sells them for and you can see the issues.

Good luck with whatever you do next. I know Wellesbourne and actually know the shop (never been in) and didn't realise it was your stamping ground.

At risk of being a vulture, if anything looks like it's about to go in a skip that might look useful then Warwickshire Search and Rescue MTB team may be able to provide a home for it.

I'm retiring - for the third time! Sorry, whatever doesn't sell is going to one of the owner's other locations.
