Tools of the Trades roundup (spring 2017)

Visited Tools of the Trades last Sunday for a couple of hours. Uber-busy when it opened at 10am, and for the next hour and a half. I didn’t know what I was really looking for – and in reality I didn’t buy much. There were lots of the usual planes, and chisels, a good amount of Swedish chisels, and the like, some Japanese tools. I ended up buying a 700mm Ulmia frame saw, two block planes (a Union and a Twix), a 1/8″ mortise chisel, and a small hand adjustable wrench. A super huge selection from John Pirie at Ontario Antique Tools.

Always a great selection of sets of Swedish chisels – this Beaver set looked like it had never been used.

A good selection of tools from Britools – purveyors of quality British chisels, planes, saws, and measuring implements.

Loads, and loads of moulding planes. ( I mean bucket-loads, and often inexpensive).

A super great selection of planes (at excellent prices) – Stanley, Millers Falls, etc.
