After seeing the whole line up of tools he offers, I went home with a couple examples and the wish that he was my younger brother!
Christmas presents from him would get opened first !
He is a very nice guy and very knowledgeable.
Thomas definitely knows how to make some tools !
(Now, how to hide this stuff from “you know who”)

I guess Eric is one of them!!......seriously, I think he is the one on the right because of the age.
AND, if he was a friend and good man, he was your brother.

I’m the guy on the right, and the man on the left in the vest is Thomas Lie-Neilsen from Lie-Neilsen tools works.
I visited with him at the Jeff Miller shop in Chicago, featuring Lie-Neilsen’s hand tools.
His stuff is “Holy Smokes” quality.
There were several other high-end venders there as well.
I didn’t buy very much because his prices match his quality in tools…..lol

And I like your point Sam, in the end we are all brothers.
