A Tool Collecting Story
« on: December 11, 2017, 11:20:37 PM »
I thought some of might want to read what a non tool collector thinks about tool collecting.https://www.laphamsquarterly.org/lines-work/lost-tools
A person who could really read human minds would be privileged to gaze on some correct imitations of chaos.

How far gone are you when you know the un-named authors ("Antique & Unusual Wrenches"  "History of Old-Time Farm Implement...") and the collecting brother-in-law is on your list of frequent absentee bidders?
And I don't even seriously collect!

Buy a barn, then add onto it!   In five years it will magically be full.
