You Name it - We'll Find It!

... or at least we'll give it our very best shot

Building a website takes quite a time (or a great amount of money: I have little time, but even less money!!!) so that getting all of the available goods on line is a long-term project.  Even at the end of that time, with all of the stock items on line, there are still likely to be many needs and wants that are not immediately satisfied from these pages.  Hence this page.

We can obtain most quality tools - especially those of British manufacture - pretty quickly.  If there are tools that you want or need, then please feel free to ask us to help you by finding them.

The way to use this service is simply to drop us an e-mail giving the details of what it is that you are seeking (make, model/size etc. if you wish to be specific; simply the functional name of the tool if all you want are our recommendations) and we'll get back to you with a price and availability.  It's as simple as that, but don't forget to ensure that your return e-mail address is given correctly so that we can reply.  Quite a few people are already using this service, so we thought we had better be fair and make it available to all.

A final point of guidance: as with all of the tools on this site, we deal in high-quality tools designed to give a lifetimes (or several lifetime's) service.  Please don't ask us to get you cheapskate brands or unbranded tools built to a price.  My father was a toolmaker and he left some pretty high standards behind when he died: I attempt to maintain those standards by only supplying the best.  That doesn't exclude popular brands - many of those are excellent - but it does generally mean branded tools.

This is not an exhaustive list, but typical brands which we handle include:

  • Antex (pyrographs and soldering irons)
  • Arbortech (woodcarvers)
  • Ashley Isles (turning tools, carving tools ...)
  • Carver (rack clamps and bar clamps)
  • Chestnut Products (woodfinishing products)
  • Clico (planes, wood bits, spokeshaves, router cutters ...)
  • Crown Tools  (chisels, squares, turning tools, carving tools ...)
  • Hamlet Craft Tools (edge tools for woodturning and woodworking)
  • Henry Taylor (chisels, carving chisels, adzes, slipstones ...)
  • Jacobs (chucks)
  • Liberon (dyes, polishes, finishing oils, waxes ...)
  • Nobex (mitre saws)
  • Record (planes, spokeshaves, chisels, vices, anvils, clamps & a very long list ...)
  • Robert Sorby (chisels, carving gouges, turning tools ... )
  • Trend (router bits and accessories)

... ... and a whole gamut of woodthreading equipment, polishing mops, arbors etc.; saw blades; abrasive cutting discs; wire brushes; etc., etc.
