News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York where we live among tools all of the time.

We will be in York, Pennsylvania for the Mid-West Tool Collectors Association Regional Meeting on Saturday. If you have items for our upcoming auctions or antique tool parts for sale, please bring them along.

A reminder that our room block for the Marriott East Hotel in Indianapolis will expire in February for our March 20th and 21st auctions. To make your room reservations, just set your browser to: https://book.passkey.com/go/donnellyauctions and make your reservations today. We look forward to seeing you there.

Today's Photo Montage shows some random scenes of sorting in the back warehouse where we are processing a collection of Stanley planes and another collection of wooden planes. They say that if you like sausage, you probably should not watch it being made, but the whole process or sorting, evaluating, lotting and moving tools to the photography studios is really quite interesting to watch, even if you have been doing it for twenty years.

In addition to the tool photos, we have two "blast from the past" photos. The first shows John and Babe Kinnemeyer of Cincinnati, Ohio together with their sons and daughters in law at the sale where we sold John's collection in 2011. John passed away in 2014 at the age of 82.

The second photo shows the parking lot in Nashua, New Hampshire for our first Catalogue Auction in April of 2001. If you squint, you can make out some familiar faces in the less than high quality photograph.

We look forward to seeing many of you in Pennsylvania this weekend.
