Nowadays there is a fascination with collecting antique tools and accessories and many tradesmen will have a collection to display in their home or office. From old woodworking lathes, wrenches, drills, hammers and chisels, etc., there is a vast selection to purchase online or at reputable antique dealers. It is a testament to the fact that these old tools were made to last and many still work today doing an effective job.
