Update 2018-10-16 Hi Everyone- It is a cold, crisp autumn night here in Connecticut. We finally have the wood stove burning for the first time this year, the latest we have ever been able to wait thanks to the unseasonably warm weather here lately. Tonight I added about five dozen tools to the list including some good gouges, some block planes, molding planes, and a couple of wooden jointers. I hope you find something you like! Thanks for looking --Josh

Short Carpenters Hammer.
This hammer has no mark I can see. The face is clean and slightly domed as you'd expect to see. The claws have a couple of tiny chips you can see in the photos. What I really like is the short handle- barely 11in long overall. It's a small carpenter's hammer with long, sweeping claws.. it doesn't need a long handle on it. It's a fine hammer for work at the bench.

North Brothers no. 30A Yankee Spiral Ratchet Screwdriver..
This is a pre-WWII example in excellent condition. It works perfectly. It can be used as a regular screwdriver, ratchet screwdriver, or spiral screwdriver. This example has the rare "finger guard" for lack of a better term, which I imagine prevents the fingers of the non-driving hand from getting caught in the mechanism. It was made in Philadelphia by North Brothers. It comes with three bits. An excellent example
