Resource for finding antique hand tools

Antique hand tools are all around us, but are often difficult to find as many of the collections and sources are held by those that are not online or use word of mouth to find them. This page will hopefully show how close many of these sources are and help people find old and neglected hand tools.

Map of all locations


This map may be slightly out of date as I cannot update it all the time, but I try to update it every couple months or as I am notified. There are new pins and locations being added all the time. If you have any you wish to add please let me know.
