Update 2018-02-16

Hi again! Another update tonight as I continue the great winter clean-out. There's lots of unusual and useful stuff here. I hope to have some more coming up tomorrow as well. Thanks for reading! --Josh

A quick note- It's getting towards the end of winter and I need to make room for spring tool season. I've got many hundreds of tools to find new homes for. There's nothing exceptional or exciting about this stuff, it's just decent, usable tools. I often hear from new woodworkers who need usable tools on a tight budget. I think many of these items will suit. I do realize that it's not practical to spend $4 to ship a $5 item so I want to remind everyone that I'm happy to hold items for up to a month in hopes that you'll find more items to add to a box and save on shipping. Also keep an eye on my Parts and Projects page for some tools that need a little more TLC than normal, but are worth the effort

Tools are organized into the following categories:

Boring Tools For Sale

North Brothers YANKEE no. 41 Push Drill.
This push drill is in perfect working order. It has seen some use and has some nickel loss but the spring is strong, the chuck holds bits perfectly, and the magazine handle is full of bits. IT was made in Philadelphia, PA before the 1946 Stanley acquisition. It's a handy tool for safely, quickly and accurately boring small holes.
