Old Tool Photos mission is to provide a place for woodworkers and tool collectors to view photos of antique tools for research and reference.
How it started?
The idea for this site came to me when I was trying to find out more about the Stanley 53 spokeshave. Searches on the Internet turned up nothing, even though this spokeshave was very common. I've found a number of good resources for antique tool information but none was complete so I've always been forced to used search engines to track down specific models of antique tools.
What types of tools will be photographed?
The focus of this site is woodworking and carpentry hand tools. The tools offered to view on the site will include but are not limited to planes, chisels, hammers, axes, braces, hand drills, screwdrivers, and saws.
What brands of tools will be displayed?
All types of tools brands will be displayed. A few examples of woodworking hand tools brands to be displayed are Stanley, Keen Kutter, Nicholson, Union, Norris, Spiers, Disston, Preston, Record and Millers Falls.
How old does the tool need to be?
All types of collectible tools are okay to list. For example, a Lie-Nielsen is a modern collectible tool. A generic screwdriver purchased at the hardware store is not an "old tool".
