Is it already that time again? Sunday, October 2nd, “Tools of the Trades” at the Pickering Recreation Complex: 10am to 3pm.
Time again to spend a couple of hours hunting for some vintage tools. 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. You could spend months traipsing through antique stores looking at overpriced junky tools. But why when there is Tools of the Trades? There is always a good selection of vintage Stanley, British planes (Record), wooden planes, and a few Millers Falls and Sargents. Occasionally there are also some Japanese tools, and a *whole* bunch of wooden planes. Always good bargains. In the spring I picked up a set of 13 Henry Taylor set of carving chisels for C$200.
