OldTools is a mailing list catering to the interests of old hand tool aficionados, both collectors and users.
To quote from the OldTools list charter:
The purpose of this list is to provide an entertaining, not-quite-moderated, light-hearted, fun, jolly, happy, informative forum to discuss the history, usage, value, location, availability, collectibility, and restoration of traditional tools, including woodworking tools.
