|We will be out in full force at this year's Third Ward LN Hand Tool Show. Tim is bringing his treadle lathe and you will be able to have a whack at treadle turning if you wish. As you can see in the photo the lathe uses live centers instead of dead ones for a more efficient footwork. This is what happens when tool makers make their own thousand year old hand tool device. We will also have all the Gramercy Tool tools for inspection and purchase, our new US made Vises, new world famous totebags and free hard copies of Modern Edge Tools. For the first time since we are doing the show we will be able to take credit cards and we will have some merchandise available for cash and carry. |
The show run: Friday, January 4th, 2013 from 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM and Saturday, January 5th, 2013 from 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM.
Our host is is 3rd Ward, a multi-disciplinary workspace and education center in Bushwich, Brooklyn. For directions click here.
