I can’t believe it’s April already but that probably only highlights how busy we have been over the past few months with everything related to our tool businesses.
The Hammer auction as you can see is certainly niche but has been quite an interesting learning curve and illustrates why we need a big van to take the weight when collecting large tool collections. Anyway, after many hours of work, the hammers have been sorted, grouped into lots, described, photographed, and listed ready for the start date on the 21st.
On the face of it, this hammer auction isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea but when you look through it carefully it’s surprising what might pique your interest. I certainly learned much through collating, researching, and following advice from this dedicated hammer collector.
As ever, Tooltique has been busy serving customers with refurbished tools. We have been locked away in our workshops correcting planes ready for use, sharpening saws, and working on many other tools to ensure they are fit for purpose. The compliments we received daily from our customers have certainly warmed our hearts during those cold winter months and made the effort worthwhile. Joanne bless her has been a rock and her part in all this is equally important, again the tool auction owes her a debt of gratitude for all her hard work.
We also have been working on making new saw vices for our saw sharpening courses that start here in Norwich in July, we have cleared the space needed for this and will, after the auction be setting out the room with all the benches and equipment needed. It’s an in-depth course that works with those learning it properly and sets out a path in stages. There will be more on this on the Tooltique website in due course.
So all in all it’s been a productive winter, roll on summer!
