Gday new friends
« on: August 11, 2019, 04:49:13 PM »
Hello, I’m a new member to this forum.
Im a tool collector and have a carpentry and  joinery background.
Looking forward to learn and hopefully contribute at some stage.
I collect 19th century Four Fold Rules, 19th and early 20th century Hand saws. I also have an interest in mid 20th century Australian hand planes.

Kind regards jimmy

Hi Jimmy, welcome to Tool Talk, home of the nicest bunch of guys on any forum...and some of the most knowledgeable. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, you won’t get any "snarky" answers here, just good information, usually.

Hi Gibsontool, the photograph I’ve taken is too large for this site, I’ll look at reducing it somehow, I have Disston 7, 8’s, 12, and no 9 backsaw, also some English saws, R Sorby, Eben Parker, Johnson. Oldest would be the Sorby or 7 1865-71. Loads of late 19th- early 20th scews including Simonds.
Thanks for you interest. Jimmy

Very nice looking saws and those type of Davis levels are a work of art.

Welcome to the site, Jimmy.  I'm from Kansas and I need some help.
Tell me; how can a collector limit his interest like you do?  Mine goes wild--all over the place.  And all over the house.
The ORIGINAL Northwoods.
