I specialize in vintage woodworking and machinists tools. My focus is on providing usable tools to people who work with them.
I have a large selection of parts from ranging from the common to the esoteric. Also included in this list are "project" tools... tools that need a little help but are worth of the effort of restoring them.
My library of tool and woodworking related resources. Articles, vintage tool advertismets, and the Stanley bench plane type study

This is an 17th century panel raiser or moving fillister. It was made by George Mutter and has a blade made by John Green, both well documented 18th century London planemakers. Most planes in this style are essentially big adjustable rabbet planes but this one cuts a small chamfer at the corner, not a 90 degree angle as you'd expect from a rabbet plane. The tote is beautifully shaped. Lots of fun new tools came in recently including this one. Keep an eye out for new tools coming up this evening.
Once in a while I write stuff about woodworking, tools, etc..
