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.

Tooling up with Festool

Festool Domino x

It’s nice to have a moment to write a blog post, it’s been way too long. I won’t bore you with the details, but the house renovation I’ve been working on has taken much longer than I thought it would, mainly because I get there only for one or two days in the week. I’m …
