Summer Tool List No. 1

Hello Everyone!

I put up my first list of tools for this summer. You can see the new stuff here: http://hyperkitten.com/tools/ForSale/Tools_FS.php This list includes about 160 new items including a huge bunch of nice edge tools, a few Stanley planes, some backsaws, boring tools, etc. I’ve had a lot of interest in dividers and side beads lately so I’ve tried to list as many as I can to satisfy the demand. I have lots of tools in stock and more on the way so please let me know if you are looking for something specific.

A note on email- email communication is unreliable. Messages are sometimes delayed by several minutes, hours, or even a day or more. There’s no reason behind this, messages just get stuck at one mail hop or another. I’ve heard more and more complaints lately that messages to/from me are taking too long to arrive. I would highly recommend sending messages to both of my addresses: jclark@hyperkitten.com and jclark42@gmail.com to increase the chances that one gets through to me in a timely manner.

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far. With our youngest now 2 years old we’re doing more on our free days. Our little town beach on the river is always a popular destination- my oldest daughter can now make it out to the dive platform which is a big deal around here. Our town’s fireworks are scheduled for tonight and we’re planning on a day trip to Mystic, CT next week. The bass are still biting (caught two in a short 5 minute fishing trip last night!) and the garden is looking good so far. I’ve been brewing more often lately with good success. I have a stout and pale ale in the fermenters, a Steam lager in the secondary, and a wheat beer jut finishing up bottle conditioning. I also finally bottled the hard cider I made last fall. I’m set for refreshment for a while. It should be a fun summer- I hope yours is too.

Thanks for reading.

May 28th Tool List Available

Hi Folks,

I’ll keep this short and to the point since I’m running late.. I added around 180 new items to my For Sale page today. This includes a number of Stanley planes, nice molding planes, backsaws, tons of edge tools including my latest batch of drawknives and some exceptional larger chisels. I also raided my collection and decided to part with one of the finest plows I’ve come across. Lots of other fun stuff as well. Check out the new list here: http://hyperkitten.com/tools/ForSale/Tools_FS.php

If I can get some problems with my web host resolved I will be adding another 20 or so books and vintage catalogs to the list.

Look out for my next update on Wed, June 25. In the mean time please contact me by email if you have any specific requests.

May First Monday Tool Sale

I put up a batch of some 120+ fresh old tools on my For Sale page today. This list includes a bunch of Stanley planes, some toothing planes, drawknives, bunches of good edge tools, some vintage books and catalogs, and lots of other fun stuff. I hope you find something you like!

Around here Tool Season is in full swing. My stock room is packed with all sorts of interesting tools. I’m working hard to fulfill all of the requests I have on file for specific tools. If you are looking for something in particular please let me know!

Around here the weather has been beautiful and the spring rain has the rivers flowing nicely. Fishing season is open and I’ve been able to go out with my daughter twice so far. We’ve caught a couple of decent brown trout and a really good bass (really good for a Connecticut) on Saturday.

That’s all for now. Thanks for reading!

Let’s Try Again- Spring is REALLY Here Tool Sale

Hi Folks,

Last time I wrote that spring was finally here. A few days later we had a snow and ice storm. Today it’s in the mid 70s, the daffodils are in full bloom, and the peepers are chirping. Spring is really here this time. I hope.

Today’s For Sale List includes a large number of tools- some 140+ planes, edge tools, molding planes, saws, etc. There’s lots of good stuff here including some barely used modern saws, a complete Stanley 55, a decent user set of hollows and rounds, as well as assorted other interesting bits. There’s lots of fun stuff. I hope you find something you like.

Fresh Bunch of Old Tools For Sale Today

Hi Folks,

I put a lot of about 100 new old tools up on my For Sale page today. This list includes a large number of quality edge tools, some nice complex molding planes, a few metallic bench planes, drills and boring tools, and other fun stuff. I’m also sorting through some recent auction winnings and two collections of tools coming in shortly so you will see lots of quality working hand tools coming up in the next few weeks.

Around here it seems like winter is finally ending.. We are down to about 12 inches of snow covering most of the ground. It’s hard to believe the daffodils will be coming up in less than a month!

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!

New Tools for the New Year

OK, so the new year is getting a little old by now.. Here’s my first list for 2014 available here: http://hyperkitten.com/tools/ForSale/Tools_FS.php 130 new tools including lots of quality chisels, gouges, molding planes, some saws, etc. I hope you find something you like!

I’m happy to say that after nearly five years of (involuntary) part time work, the company I work for has finally put us all back to work full time. This will leave me with less time for old tools, but I’m committed to putting together a regular list of tools for sale. This may extend to once every three weeks, but the lists will be bigger if so. As always, if there’s somethign specific you are looking for please feel free to contact me. I’m always happy to help whenever I can. I’m just about done working through my backlog of email from the DEcember holidays- what a crazy month! I hope to be more prompt replying going forward.

Thanks everyone. Happy New Year!

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.

Shopt Time

Thanks for reading. I hope everyone has a healthy and happy New Year!
