I am always interested in purchasing vintage tools in any condition. Also I am willing to purchase whole collections or assist you with a collection liquidation. Finding new homes for a tool collection thru dealer purchases, Craiglist sales, Auction sales, and garage sales, we will take a collection and turn it into cash. If you need help with a shop or tool collection, contact me and we can discuss options.



The best bargain these days is a Stanley transitional plane in good condition. For some reason modern woodworkers don't realize what great planes they are. The wood bottom give less friction and is a very smooth working plane. Of course you have all the fine adjustments of a regular cast iron bench plane. If you would like to try one out I will have some at my upcoming events.


Here is a load of restored hand saws I just finished. I will be selling  them over the next few weeks on eBay. Lots of good saws always at my eBay store.




IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A GOOD USER SAW EMAIL ME. I will have plenty of hand sharpened saws at my upcoming events you can try out.

I have been selling antique & vintage tools on eBay since 1997 as TAKEADIP. I am a member of CRAFTS, the New Jersey antique tool club. After being the editor for a few years I am currently president of this club. I am also a member of Mid-West Tool Club & EAIA. I live on Lake Hopatcong in Northern NJ. It is the biggest lake in NJ being nine miles long. A recent interest is restoration of wood boats. My current boat is a totally restored 1954 custom runabout 17’ long. I attend many of the tool auctions here around New Jersey. I hope we can meet some day and discuss your interests in antique tools.
