News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York, where we just realized that we have been sending these newsletters since November 18, 1997. Word has it that Our Founder was then in his twenties. Whatever, we have sent 2200 of them and have every intention of sending at least that many more.

As we prepare for our 2019 auctions, we are constantly sorting and doing research on the many things we will be selling. To give you an idea of how varied things have become, today's Photo Montage begins with a picture of one of the more than three dozen boxes remaing to be sold from the Collection of John & Janet Wells. Preparing the Wells Collection for auction has been an absolute delight, where "Though the Looking Glass" leads into the pages of Roger K. Smith's books on Patented and Transitional Planes in America.

The second photo shows a glimpse of some of the many Civil War Era edged weapons that will be featured in our March Auction in Indianapolis, with a few choice New England items selling in Nashua. We also have a collection of early firearms and related artifacts, all from the Collection of the late Ray Fredrich of Arlington Heights, Illinois.

The next photo shows some of the many pendcil sharpeners that will be sold from the Collection of Arthur Redinger of Liberty, Indiana. The pencil sharpeners and great antique tools from the Redinger Collection will be distributed through our first five auctions of 2019.

Our warehouse is full of tools, but we have other things to do there, such as processing and photographing these things. The fourth photo shows a stand for holding a large piece of plate glass that we built this morning and began painting this afternoon. The plate glass is used to arrange groups of tools or individual items for photography so that shadows are dissipated below and do not appear in the photographs. If you do not hear a loud crash in the coming days, you will know that the stand worked as we intended.

The final photo today shows a photo collage of snapshots taken at the Rule Collector's Showcase held during our April Auctions at the Radisson Hotel of Nashua. Thanks, once again to all of those who participated by bringing rules from their collection to display. And special thanks to Scott Lynk who arranged for the Rule Collectors Showcase and made the poster. Scott claims to be from Vergennes, Vermont, but he spends most of his time on golf courses in Florida. Thank you, Scott. The poster does not shrink all that well, so we have posted a copy on our web site, which is available by clicking HERE.

Many thanks to all of you for sticking around for some or all of the 2200 newsletters.
