Content

Even in the era of the cordless electric drill, the stories in simple wooden hand tools appeal to collectors. 
"Collectible Hand Tools" offers a broad overview of the tools that craftsmen brought to the new world - and many North American originals - as they began to shave, carve, rivet, gauge, mark, saw, and join together their lives in the 200 years before the creation of mass-produced tools.
Six categories of tools feature examples of traditional European and American designs for working wood, metal, and leather, as well as the hardest-working tools of all: those associated with building trades, including over a dozen specialized hammer shapes.
The final chapter looks at unusual tool designs.
With over 400 full-color photographs accompanied by detailed captions and a section of useful addresses to guide the curious, "Collectible Hand Tools" is the perfect introduction to an absorbing hobby.

  •     Fabulous photos and dates given for these hand tools and descriptions helpful. Gave to dad who used and collects old tools and he really likes the book.
  •     Each page is one photo and tool type with a paragraph about it. It was just about worth the $2.35 that I paid for it.
