I have been collecting and using antique tools for about 10 years. I have a special interest in 19th century hand saws, especially those produced by the Harvey W. Peace company and the Vulcan Saw Works. I'm also interested in researching the history of vintage hand tools. I've put together a few pages that contain some work I've done and some very valuable research others have completed.
