I have a very modest collection of miniature tools. Among these are a 6” nail bar, a 3” retractable box knife, 4” vise grips…you get the idea. To be in my ‘collection’ the tool has to be around half the size of ‘normal’ or smaller yet still functional. Surfing the internet for a hand plane to add to the collection I came across this article about William R. Robertson. Mr.Robertson creates 1/12 scale miniatures. The picture shows a reproduction of an 18th century tool chest and shows a hand plane with shavings from a full scale pencil. The saw blade, next to the plane, has 160tpi. No, I didn’t count, I listened to the audio link.
Anyway, now I am going to be obsessed with recreating this tiny hand plane. First step, get a better magnifier!
Are there any other miniature tool collectors out there? What’s in your tool box?
