Tools of the Trades – Fall show

In a week, it is time for the fall “Tools of the Trades” at the Pickering Recreation Complex.

SUNDAY, October 5th – 10am to 3pm.

Time again to spend a couple of hours mulling over some vintage tools – although with the number of tools now in my workshop, I may have to start selling tools soon! I’ll be looking for unusual or rare block planes, and likely some tool catalogs. If you are a new to woodworking, looking to buy a set of starter tools for a reasonable price, there is no better show in Canada. There is always a good selection of vintage Stanley, British planes (Record), wooden planes, and a few Millers Falls and Sargents.

      Yeah, it’s a great show – check out some of my previous posts on the show for photos. I tried to find some vintage tools when we drove from Toronto to Maine this summer via NY, VT, and NH… and… honestly didn’t find much. It’s twice yearly, but I got to believe the fall show is better, after a summer of potential picking!
