Topic tags/keywords: handtools shop buy help

Hello friends (if I may so brutal)

So as you maybe read on my Homepage from Lumberjock I’m busy to build off my shop.
We are now busy for a couple of months to build op the beginning of the shop.
The first thing we did was hanging the cabinets and some panels for hanging the tools.
In the time I’m lying on my bed if learnt myself to make website’s and therefore I get, for this websites,
now and then some present and sometimes some powertools, the lastone was a Festool dealer
and therefore I earn some Festool tools.
Now I have some powertools but the most handtools I don’t have.
When I heard that I was ill and there was no cure for my illness I throw in time off madness most
off my tools away, I was so angry and disappointed I thought I will never sit behind my bench anymore.
And 3 years ago we must move to another house, because are old house was not suitable for ridding
whit a wheelchair and then also I lost a lot off tools, thinking I don’t use them anymore.
Now is the time I’m gone get crazy on my bed and now I want to try for a 1/2 hour
a day to do some woodworking, beginning whit small things. Sitting in a special chair, I want to try it.
Therefore I’m now searching for some handtools, I can’t afford new wanes and therefore
I want to ask you guys off you have any (old) handtools, who are still good, but you
don’t use them anymore, off I can buy them from you.
You properly think, why not in the Netherlands? This country is not really a woodworking
community, the do some homebuilding stuff but not really woodworking, such you guys do.
I also look on Ebay, but I find this a little bid scary, I don’ now why

I hope there is somebody who can help me, tell me your price and maybe we can
help each other.
Sorry for the long story and for my bad English.

Thanks Schummie.

I just finish reading your story and I feel very bad for you I hope I can do something for you but 3 weeks ago we had here in my home town what we call a Garage Sale and the profit was going for a 20 year old man that had lost a leg to cancer and all profits was to buy him an artificial leg and I gave 3 large boxes of tools that I was not using they were light tools some hand and some power, I will check around and see if they did not sell all of the and get back to you, I also may have more tools that I don’t use….I wish you all the luck my friend

What kind of hand tools do you need? Either post a listing or email me privately and I’m sure something will happen to help you out one way or another. As always, bbqKing.

Hello friends,

I don’t think that there are a lot off people who have some tools who the don’t use anymore
and maybe want to sell. Probely it was a stupid question, a wrong idea from me, sorry.
