IMS removal tool

Hello all! Hope this isn't an old questions that's been answered in the past. I just had the LN Engineering IMS bearing installed in my "03 Boxster. The old bearing looked good but I can sleep better at night now knowing it won't blow on me!! Anyway, my mechanic gave me the removal tools back. Is there a good reason to hold on to them or maybe try and sell it to someone else who can use it.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Good day...

IIRC, the LN Engineering website recommends checking or replacing the upgraded IMS bearing every 50K miles, so you might want to hang on to the tools if you are keeping the car long term.

Regards, Maurice.

Thanks for all of your input! Pretty sure I won't put 50k on myself and have no intentions of selling in the near future, it's such a fun car to drive. Looks like I will try and sell the tools.
Thanks again.
This forum is so great!
Good day...
