Antiques People

A valuable Antiques Information Resource Website, that include links to antique tools, particularly wood working tools, among a wide variety of other links. If somebody is out there selling or buying it, and it is antique, then there's probably a link to them.

Collector's Meetup

At the moment, MeetUp has a topic for "antique collectors", but nothing as specialized as antique tool collectors. However, if a few of us want to use this method, then we can add a topic. I know, between EAIA, MWTCA, and all the other get-together's, who needs another? Well, maybe you do. Think about it.

Adze to Coda

Lloyd Godman has developed Adze to Coda, a provocative and evocative site on what he calls the "archeology of device". It's an art project where tools are used in a different way, to make photograms. The text and images will make you think about tools in a new way.

In the object there is also something else, `a trace in matter of the activity of the immaterial' . The shape of the object represents the idea of an object's function, once known the two are inseparable. Adze to Coda

On Line Discussion

OldTools is a mailing list catering to the interests of old hand tool aficionados, both collectors and users. The list's charter states:

The purpose of this list is to provide an entertaining, not-quite-moderated, light-hearted, fun, jolly, happy, informative forum to discuss the history, usage, value, location, availability, collectibility, and restoration of traditional woodworking tools. The emphasis is on muscle-powered tools and techniques, though water-powered machinery (whether steam, or mill pond) is more than welcome.

OldTools is a very casual place-- The popular image is that of a back porch get-together. People come and go, swap stories, ask questions of the "old-timers", and just generally engage in polite discussion of the old tool topics of the day.
