News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York, where we are spending one last day looking backward as we prepare for our upcoming Great Fall Auctions.

Today's Photo Montage includes a number of images of the Summer Auction, including many taken by Martin J. Donnelly Auctions Official Photographer of Record, Tom Wisnieski and others stolen without attribution from Facebook posts and the like. There are too many to offer comments on all, but they capture the mood of the setup, the auction, the pig roast and going home.

We look forward to seeing many of you again soon at our Fall auctions.

Today's Featured Tool Description

Ruger Corp., The/Southport, Ct. : Magazine Handle Hand Drill. Firearm Maker. Scarce & Excellent. Length: 7.00 Inches. The Ruger Corporation is well known for firearms, their principal product, but less well known for their short-lived line of tools. Any idea what they used for a model when designing this one? Word has it that their plans for a bolt-action jointer plane and a semi-automatic level were shelved following the less than enthusiastic response to their initial offerings in the marketplace. A rare drill in excellent condition. (GOOD+). This item was sold on August 30, 1999 for $225.00. jpg_file

Just Added to the Auctions

jpg_file Lot 389. TWO EARLY BRASS BODY SCARIFICATORS for blood letting. single and multiple blade examples. (GOOD+).(125.00 - 250.00) Length: 5 Inches.
