"Man is a tool-using animal. Without tools he is nothing, with tools he is all."
Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881)
Union Hill Antique Tools is dedicated to the use, collection, preservation, and extension of antique tool knowledge. Here you will find many articles of interest if you like collecting and using antique tools.
The tools included here didn't require electricity and have some collectible tool value. Many of these old tools also are superior tools for use, due to a higher grade of materials used in days past and better construction techniques. On this site you will find articles about antique tools and treadle powered or foot powered machines, type studies, lists of tools for sale, and information on a tool collector's database and mailing list.
