This new, completely revised and fully illustrated second edition of the indispensable Price Guide to Antique Tools has what every collector, dealer, or user looks for when trying to price a tool: a picture of the tool and an easy-to-find estimate of its current value. The prices in this edition are averaged from recent auctions, eliminating the "fluke" high and low sales to give the reader an accurate and up-to-date handle on current values. They cover tools from top-of-the-line treasures to common flea market pieces. All chapters have been expanded to include tools that have become more available in the marketplace, with explanations for each tool group to help the reader classify that most critical of all factors, "condition." The chapter on American wooden planes has been both enlarged and simplified, covering over 400 makers, each graded with a single value number. The book includes illustrations of approximately 1,000 different woodworking tools, easy-to-find current prices-a total of 12,000 individual and chart combinations, chapters on buying antique tools, tool wood identification, clubs and organizations to join, reference books, and a complete index for easy use. An indispensable volume. 160 pages. Fully illustrated. 7" x 10". Soft cover.
