Vintage Hand Tools
Hello guys! I am a hobby woodworker, nothing too serious, and new to the forum. I love woodworking and I also love antiques. So I am thinking about smashing the two together and buying up old tools and restoring them.
I have no concerns about my ability to make an old tool look like new, but I am curious to see what tools you guys would recommend. I will probably look for most of them on eBay, but I will also be keeping my eye out locally as well. What would you recommend I look for, anything specific?
I look forward to your responses, thanks!
P.S. Yes I know that some people will tell me that an old tool is most valuable as rusty and patinaed as possible, which may be true for some super rare ones, but a tool was meant to be used, and if the condition prevents them from being used, what is the point?
