If I knew what I could refurbish, sharpen, and what a properly set up tool felt like when I started, I would have considerably fewer newly manufactured tools. So if you can acquire that knowledge without buying new tools, you could save a bundle by sticking with vintage tools that you refurbish. Oh, also learn about vintage tool manufacturers. Last week I picked up a few Witherby socket chisels for $3 each . . .

I prefer what Ron Herman said at a lecture of his I was at recently, “The more tools you have, the more problems you can solve.”
