Hi Everyone, we have something different for the next auction as it is being focused at the subject of Antique & Vintage hammers.
For everyone that may think it’s not for them, I have to say now that we are putting this together what a fascinating subject this has turned out to be. It doesn’t matter what trade we plied it’s certain that all of us have used them but probably never considered what thought has been put into them.
In the USA this is a strong subject and it is a subject that is broadening its horizon internationally like so many other types of tools. But by holding a pure subject auction it’s been a very insightful journey and one that I hope everyone takes a little time to investigate.
In the hammer auction there are many scarcities, trades these hammers cover but also there are many that are as useful today as when they were produced.
The images are being taken now and we hope to get these uploaded in plenty of time for everyone to do their own research but more importantly, there will be much to learn here by doing it.
It’s been a while since I posted on the website but that’s only due to the lack of need but also because I’ve been so busy working on improving the website system which hopefully will be ready for this next auction.
Also because of the quantity and variety that will be on offer, there will be multi-lots whereby a selection by subject or type will be offered along with those rare types that quite frankly I’ve never seen before!
Should be interesting that’s for sure.
This antique tools website has a built in auction system for bidding on the tools, it also has a members area to restrict tracking apps and a built in forum for members to discuss anything tool related, securely.
Members can watch individual tool lots and it has a proxy bid system that facilitates proxy bids.
We auction Antique tools and collectable old tools and those user grade tools that are are in exceptional near mint condition.
It’s fun and a rewarding pursuit that has engrossed lots of tool collectors for many years. It’s an interest that gets you out and about, involves research into tool makers history and talking to others who have a common interest.
It’s the hunt for collectable tools that many get thrills from, the fact that knowledge can pay handsomely to fund the bigger purchases in your tool collection is the icing onto the cake.
