We have been selling antique and old collectable tools via auctions for a number of years and have now launched our online site where you can buy interesting secondhand woodworking tools direct from us; cutting out the expense of auction commission and allowing you to browse our catalogue at your leisure.  By subscribing to The Old Tool Shed newsletter you will receive a regular update detailing new and interesting tools we hold in stock.  If you would rather receive a real time feed to make sure you don’t miss that rare tool then a RSS feed is also available.

We are passionate about old woodworking and carpentry tools and stock a full range of products from many well known brands such as Stanley, Sorby, Marples, Record and Preston.  Tools for sale on our website come from a time where a craftsman regarded the tools of his trade as his meal ticket and subsequently took great care of the contents of his toolbox. This and the workmanship that went into making these tools is reflected in the condition of many of the items we see today.

If you have a particular tool you wish to sell please feel free to contact us, either using the form on the Contact Us page or by emailing We are always looking for more stock and will be happy to hear from you.
