I put a batch of 140 new old tools on my Tools For Sale Page today at noon EDT. Have a look- there’s lots of good stuff including some superb molders, nice chisels, plenty of Stanley planes, and lots of other fun stuff. The past month was an especially productive one for tool hunting. My “warehouse” is full to bursting with some of the best tools I’ve had in a while. Just last weekend I ran into a load of exceptional British molding planes- you’ll see some of them on this list and more to come in the weeks that follow.
Sorry this is a few minutes late.. It’s a school holiday and I was busy making grilled cheese sandwiches for the kids’ lunch. I’m pretty sure I make the best grilled cheese in the world… at least my kids think so, which is really all that matters. Fall is here, which means apple picking, and pumpkins, and hay rides. It’s been lots of fun with all three of them now that everyone is old enough to walk and run. I’m going to try a batch of hard cider a try this year- I’ve wanted to do it for a while. It should be interesting.
Finally, I’ve had several complaints the past few weeks that the tools I post to my website just sell too fast. I send this email to everyone at the same time and nobody gets an early look at the tools.. I understand your frustration- I do the best I can to put as many tools up at a time as possible. I try to price my tools to sell, and apparently this works because they do sell fast. The past couple of sales some 80% of the tools were sold within the first couple of hours. If you missed out on something I’m sorry. I would remind everyone that I’m always happy to received requests for specific tools. I have a large inventory of tools that are not listed on my site. In fact, a majority of my sales are not from my Tools For Sale list but from personal requests. I much prefer to work this way since it’s much less hectic. Anyhow, I understand your frustration and I’m open to comments or suggestions on how I can improve my process.
Thanks for reading!
