This SIG will consist of people with an interest in acquiring, making, using, tuning and sharpening hand tools. Members agreed they were more interested in acquiring tools for use, rather than as part of a collection.
The group’s focus on acquiring tools might include:
- How to acquire the tools.
- How to recognize collectible tools with greater value.
- How much to pay.
Tools that the group might like to make includes:
- Wood planes.
- Handles for chisels, files, saws, etc.
- Marking tools.
Structure of the Meetings
- Tool “Show and Tell.”
- Program (either by members of the SIG, someone from the Guild, or someone else).
The Hand Tool SIG meets monthly in the KC Woodworkers' Guild Shop on the fourth Sunday of each month from 2:00 until 3:30 unless otherwise posted.
