 Video Roundup

Ken Hawley & the Hawley Tool Collection  

08/24/2017

Like most people, we spend lots of time (way too much time) surfing the web, entranced by various videos. In Video Roundup, we offer some videos from all over the world that we found especially intriguing.

Here we’re focusing on the life of Hawley Tool Collection, a tool and social history repository in Sheffield, UK, and the life of Ken Hawley (1927-2014). Hawley was a tool salesman who became an expert on Sheffield manufacturing and amassed an enormous collection of Sheffield-made tools, now housed at the Kelham Island Museum in Sheffield. The collection, with nearly 100,000 tools, books and related material, is well worth a visit for anyone interested in industrial development, craft or woodworking.

Welcome to the Hawley Tool Collection!
