« Part 96: Easy Clamp Rack Part 97 of Shop stuff series Part 98: My new old draw knife »

I met this guy a few years ago. He is an older retired gent and he buys and sells old hand tools. It’s his hobby and he likes to get out and go to swap meets and markets and events all over southern Ontario buying and selling tools. I get most of my hand tools from him. He is a great guy and was kind enough to let me do a short video tour of his barn. He had a bunch of stuff packed away in his van in preparation of heading out to a show, but there is a lot left over. He does not do any business on line in case you are wondering. His thing is to go out and meet people and talk about the items. That is how he enjoys himself and keeps active.

Looks like a fun place. Not too many of them left.
