Tool Makers

Last Man Standing

Many thanks to Richard Cohen again, who sent me this link to a new video by photographer and filmmaker Shaun Bloodworth, called ‘Last Man Standing’.
The video shows craftsmen assembling Clifton planes and making Thomas Flinn Saws at Thomas Flinn & Co, the UK’s last traditional plane and saw makers in Sheffield. Hard to believe this giant industry is now reduced to one company. I very much hope the current renaissance for hand-tool woodworking creates a boost for them.
