Lunchtime Tool Sale Today

Hello Everyone,

Here’s a new list of tools for you to look over while you enjoy your lunch (or breakfast on the west coast.. or dinner in Europe) The new list is here: http://hyperkitten.com/tools/ForSale/Tools_FS.php It contains about 130 fresh tools of all sorts- lots of new Ashley Iles carving tools, some good Stanley planes, a couple of interesting Spofford braces, molding planes, etc. I hope you find something you like.

This list contains four mitre boxes. If you have been following the mitre box market, you will have been sure to note that the “craze” has peaked and prices have returned to normal which is great news for anyone looking for a good usable mitre box. I have four Millers Falls Langdons on this list in various sizes and configurations. I just got my shipment of custom triple wall boxes to facilitate shipping these beasts. They will be shipped in two boxes- one containing the box, the other the saw. There is just no good way to protect a fragile saw from that mass of cast iron if packed in the same box. They aren’t cheap, but they are guaranteed to arrive safe, work well, and be satisfactory in every way. If you are interested in one please drop me an email with any questions.

Summer is almost over and the kids go back to school next week. It doesn’t feel like fall yet- today will reach 90 degrees and we’re just starting to get the first tomatoes from the garden. It’s been a rather disappointing year for vegetables- the beans were attached by bean beatles, the pumpkins by squash borers, so neither did very well. The cucumbers went crazy though, and the tomatoes look good so far. By mid-September we’ll be making sauce I hope.

For the past four years, with a few exceptions, I’ve been posting new tools on the first and third Mondays of every month. That schedule will change slightly. My day job just changed our furlough schedule, granting us an extra half day per week. Still not full time, but I’ll take it! This means I will need to move my scheduled tool sales to the second and fourth Mondays of the month starting in September.

As I mentioned last time, I added a Parts and Projects section to my For Sale web page. I’ve been adding all sorts of blades, kits, and misc. pieces from time to time and the stuff seems to be selling pretty steadily. I will continue posting new parts and projects as time allows so keep an eye out.

That’s it for now. Thanks for reading!

Mid-Summer Tool Sale Today

Hello everyone,

It’s a beautifuld ay here in CT. Although it’s early August it feels like early October. This morning it was cold enough to send the kids off to camp in sweatshirts. What a difference from a few weeks ago! The past few weeks have been busy ones, including a 4 day trip to the massive tool show and auction MJD held out in central NY. I’m happy to report that I came home with a truck full of good, usable tools. This new list contains about 130 new items, and a few left-overs from last month that have been marked down in price. Please have a look here and let me know if you find something you like.

I added a section to my Tools For Sale webpage called “Parts and Projects”. In this section I will continuously add items to this section when I have a chance. It will random tool parts that someone might want as well as “project” pieces that need a bit of time and labor to make them work.

Finally, the next list should be out on Wed., August 21, a departure from my normal first and third Mondays of each month.

That’s all for now. Thanks for reading!

Our time off included a parade, 4th of July picnic, several trips to the beach, a trip to the aquarium, water park, Kent Falls (great state park with 250 ft three-tier waterfall), a minor league baseball game with my oldest, and other fun stuff. It was nice to get away for a bit and slow down. Now it’s back to work! I’m working on my emial backlog still so if I have been slow or unresponsive lately I apologize.

New Tools for Sale Today!

Good Afternoon!

It’s a perfect day here in Connecticut- sunny and warm without any humidity or chance of storms like the past couple of days. It’s a perfect day to sell a few tools. Today’s list contains a number of good molding planes, some fine saws and braces, a bunch of metallic and wooden bench planes, and other fun and useful stuff. Have a look and let me know if you find something you like. The new list is here: http://hyperkitten.com/tools/ForSale/Tools_FS.php

A few notes- I’m planning to take some time off from work to spend with my kids between the end of the school year and the start of camp.We have a few fun day trips planned- nothing extravagant as it’s stil hard to travel far with the little ones. As such, I’m going to skip the tool sale I would have had on the first Monday of July. I will have a larger sale in the middle of July (likely the 15th) and the next on the first Monday of August which will be 8/5. I hope everyone enjoys their 4th of July celebrations.

That’s all for now.. Sorry this is later than usual, but I got wrapped up in Game of Thrones today.. I’ve been engrossed in the audio books (I’m a huge audio book fan and listen to them constantly as I pack and clean tools) trying to catch up to the TV series. I was listening to ASOS this morning as I was putting the finishing touches on this list when I got the the wedding. Needless to say I had to listen a little longer, and needless to say that if you haven’t seen or read GoT this is completely uninteresting.

All for now, thanks for reading!

Tool Sale Today

Hi Folks,

June is here and so is the summer weather. We just got through our first heat wave of the year already. The garden is growing well, though I lost almost my entire batch of tomato seedlings which is disappointing.We had a great Memorial Day weekend with a parade, the town road race, a successufl fishing trip, and a rainy, cold, but fun picnic. I hope everyone who went to Handworks last week had a great time. All of the reports I heard were extremely positive and the pictures were further evidence. I hope to make it out there if the event is held again.

I posted a list of new old tools for sale today- lots of good stuff including a good assortment of edge tools, some nice braces, saws, molding planes, a lot of near new Veritas tools, and other fun stuff. Look for my next list on Wed., June 19 if all goes as planned. The new list is here: http://hyperkitten.com/tools/ForSale/Tools_FS.php Please contact me if you find somethign you like.

Tax Day Tool Sale

Hello everyone, happy Patriot’s Day! It’s also tax day here in the USA. In addition to the usual edge tools, saws, molders, and planes I normally offer, I’ve dug into my collection and found a few things I could live without so I can raise funds to cover the check I just wrote to the state of CT. Please have a look at my Tools For Sale page to see the new items. I hope you find something you like!

Please note- I fulfill orders in the order they are received here at my desk. While most email seems to make it here in a timely manner, many messages are delayed en route, stuck in some congested mail server, or taking the long way round the gobe to get to my mailserver. Unfortunately, there isn’t much to be done about this- it’s the nature of email. In order to insure that your email request makes it to me promptly please feel free to send your message to both my jclark@hyperkitten.com and jclark42@gmail.com addresses. This way at least one of your messages will make it here right away

Around here things are warming up nicely. The last of the snow finally melted and we were able to plant our peas and greens in the garden this week. The daffodils are up and the warm weather songbirds are back. We have our usual family of Phoebes nesting in the rafters of my wood shed and the same Wren pair nesting in the cap of our propane tank, fighting off any and all trespassers. The kids have started t-ball practice even though the mornings are still bitter cold. Tool season is in full swing and I have a large collection of tools coming in this week. Keep an eye out for lots of new tools in May.
