Got interested in old handsaws a few years ago,
collected a few at local auctions, fleas, etc, ( they were so cheap ! ).
Researched Ontario sawmakers to discover their history.
When new-to-me varieties of local Manufacturer's saws became harder to find, I branched out into other saws, then because there seemed to be plenty of antique tools available locally at bargain prices I've ventured into equipping an old carpenter's tool chest with a full complement of 100 year old tools.
I enjoy the hunt for new types of antique tools (must be at bargain prices), then researching the history of my finds and their manufacturers, and cleaning/repairing and putting the tools into working order (and on rare occasions I actually use some of them)
So I now have boxes and piles of a great variety of interesting old carpentry tools, and parts, and more and more keep following me home......but I could stop any time I wanted to...
Also volunteer 1/2 day a week at Lang Pioneer Village, assisting them with their collection of old tools.
