Tool Sale Today- Hand Tools for Woodworkers

Greetings from snowy Connecticut! I had planned to post a photo of all the snow on the ground but I ran out of time. Take a look at last week’s photo and add about a foot and a half on top of what’s on the ground in that photo. Also add in some tunnels and canyons to get to the firewood shed and you’ll get the idea. Oh, and remove the arbor you see in the first photo. The guy who plows for us clipped it with the blade and made my plan to for some repairs and paint this spring a moot point. Ah well.

New Tool List Today- 130 new items- including a few scarce planes, layout tools, good edge tools, some early molders, etc.. Have a look at my For Sale page and let me know if you find something you like.

Please also note that I added a bunch of new items to my Parts and Projects page- blades, planes that need TLC, odd bits, etc.

Thanks for reading!

One More Tool Sale for 2013!

Hi Folks,

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas. We sure did. Sorry this list is out a little later than expected- I have my oldest daughter at home with me today since school is out. We spent the morning in the shop making a birdhouse (her idea!). The project ran over, but I wasn’t about to cut it short.

Old Tools For Sale Today

Hi Folks,

Sorry this is later than usual- I’ve been franticly adding new items to the list throughout the morning. I added 130 new old tools to my For Sale List today. Have a look and see if you find something you like. This list has a lot of good, usable molding planes including some exceptional British planes from early makers. I also have a lot of edge tools, a couple of good RJ auger bit sets, some braces, Stanley planes, and the expected assortment of useful and unusual tools.

I expect to have two more tool sales this year. To work around the holidays I plan to have them on Monday, Dec 9, and Monday, Dec 30. One of these might be a night time (east coast US) sale since I’ve had a number of requests for one of those. Keep an eye on my Twitter or Google+ pages for more details.

Thanks for reading. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

This week I was cleaning up some early British molders and found this exceptional 1/4 reed and follow. It’s around 200 years old and it was sharp enough to use. After brushing off some dust it cut reed after perfect reed without as much as honing the blade. The danger in using these tools is I become attached to them. I have a fairly small user kit and a small working molding plane collection. I try to limit the size of my kit to whatI can fit in one cabinet and my tool chest. Otherwise I’d be keeping every other tool that passes through here. This plane, though, looks like it’s going to stay here.

Holiday Tool Sale Today

Good afternoon!

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.
