    Hand Tool Shopping in Ohio?

    I'll be in Eastern Ohio later this month on business and it seems to me there's a good place to shop for hand tools. I've heard it mentioned on the Creek before but searching for Ohio and Tools isn't finding it. I thought it was around Sugarcreek. Any ideas?
    It's wood dust. Saw dust would suggest a problem.

    Perhaps you are thinking of Colonial homestead workshop?

    [edit] And if you are in the millersburg area, a stop at Keim Lumber might be in order too....

    Maybe just selling off the unused to buy something more likely to get used?

    Keim really is great and if you're hungry, just down the road, Guggisberg Cheese and the home of Smuckers.

    I am. Shopping ain’t buying. SWMBO and I like antique shops too.

    Now if I could find a couple gouges suitable for spoon carving I might change my mind.

    Be prepared. It would take a week to look at all he has in that store. He also does black powder rifle building. Neat store. Keim Lumber is also a great place to stop. Lot more than just lumber.

    Sounds like fun. The good news is that I'll basically be sightseeing. I'm all set on planes and saws, bench chisels, scrapers, and measuring/layout/marking gear. I'm working real hard to keep the kit small and only consider purchases that I'll actually use. I still have some more downsizing to do. Tough choices coming in a month or two.

    The only thing I might grab a duplicate of is my Stanley #18 Sliding Bevel (I already have three different sizes) as it is the best one out there in my opinion. Lock that blade down and it ain't moving for nothing. When I work on a project with multiple angles I set multiple bevels and just leave them for the duration of the project.

  10. Ho man! Anybody know of a place like that in New England?
