Topic tags/keywords: estate sale disston bargains hand tools resource

If anyone is in the Birmingham area over the weekend, these guys are selling a ton of antique tools. More handsaws than I have ever seen in my life, as well as loose handles. Also a veritable trove of the power tools of yesteryear. I just thought I’d pass the link on, for people who have more money than I. On a non-tool note, they also have more old records than I have ever seen in one place. It would take days to go through them all.
Lots of nice old tools, though.

My God, I thought my late parents were accumulators. It looks like these folks never got rid of anything.

It is kind of sad, though, to see someone’s entire life piled up for sale at a discount. Imagine the stories all that stuff holds!
