Given here is a list of tools I have for sale. The list includes about 20 squares of various sizes as well as other tools. Many of these tools are duplicates that I have or groups of squares I have decided not to continue collecting for space reasons. The money from any sales will not go to save the rain forest or whales but provide me a means to buy a few more wooden moulding planes. I have grouped some of the squares into sets that seemed logical to me. The costs given below are without shipping. Shipping is typically at cost plus a very small handling fee quoted at time of sale after destination is provided. Sorry but no international sales.
