Humans where tool makers and users for thousands of years which is shown repeatedly throughout history. However, the manufacturing of hand tools and hardware commercially for public use or personal use in the United States essentially began in or about 1840's. The history of tools and hardware tells the story of two conflicting impulses throughout history. The first is being the urge or the necessity to handcraft one’s home and furnishings. The second was the desire to take advantage of the opportunities available to entrepreneurs in the 19th century, when the Industrial Revolution enabled the mass-production of tools that would give us the means to handcraft or repair products of the times and even to this date in time. We have a selection of tools, which includes vintage tools, antique tools, instruments, and related items for all types of tool collectors.
