New Design Coming Soon...Nov. 9th, 2010

Looks like it's time to finally complete the site! Changes coming soon.

New Page Dec. 16th, 2008

Added a new page: Galoots
In addition to several important links, this page is intended to keep track of those galoots on the web.
What's a "galoot", you ask? Well, essentially, galoots are woodworkers (and associated craftsmen) who enjoy learning about and using hand tools, often to the degree of preferring hand tools over power tools. If you want more information than that, you'll have to go to the OldTools Archive FAQ.

Electrolytic Cleaning Oct. 20th, 2008

Fellow woodworker and friend, Lockwatcher, saw my electrolytic bath I used to clean old woodworking tools and decided to take it a step further. He's published a page detailing out the construction and setup required to get a basic system working. Electrolytic cleaning is a great way to give anything rusty a new lease on life. Don't forget to check out the rest of his site, lots of great info.
