I will buy your woodworking tools

Welcome to Hackney Tools, based in the east end of London in the UK.
If you would like to SELL some old woodworking tools, email me on mail@hackneytools.com, or you can call me on 07946 497504. I buy good quality woodworking hand tools and I’m particularly interested in hand tools from Stanley, Lie Nielsen, Mathieson, Norris, Preston, Spiers, Addis, Record, Millers Falls, Holland, Slater, G.Miller and Holzapfell.
I’m afraid I cannot buy large machines, due to lack of storage space. I do, however, buy power tools made by Festool and Mafell, so please get in touch.

The old fella I bought a box full of tools from the other day certainly got his money’s worth from this Norris blade. I think I might end up cutting it into two and making a couple of nice little 1″ blades for some small scrapers, but for now it’s a nice …

A few notes about fishing…

Despite the never-ending autumn and very mild winter, I’m looking ahead to spring and have started to sort out my fishing gear. In my youth, I was a member of Luton Angling Club and fished many a match on the Grand Union Canal, mostly on stretches through Leighton Buzzard, such as Grove …
