I may have some time to visit the Woodwright’s School Store this week, if my travel plans fall properly into place. I was wondering if y’all could give me the low down on the store…

Is it open to the public or just students (it’s just open on class days, right)?
How are the prices: is it worth a special trip just for picking up some old tools?
And do they take cards, or just cash? How about car titles? Or firstborn children?

The tool store is run by Ed Lebetkin, email address is here:

I haven’t been to the store but I met Ed at a MWTCA meeting where he had a table set up. His prices were maybe a little above ebay prices but there was no junk. Ed was very knowledgeable and congenial, and also has responded to my emails in a timely manner. I’m sure he can answer all your questions.

From the May newsletter:

The tool store is generally open when classes are in session but with spring comes baseball and I will be leaving early Sat May 3 and Sun May 4, leaving early May 13-18, 31. I come in a lot of weekday afternoons so get in touch to find a convenient day for everyone. I check email regularly and have a home phone 919-967-1757 and cell 919-698-0230, the cell is off at my house but on at the store.
