News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York, where we are basking in the afterglow of a great Nashua Auction Weekend even as we prepare your purchases for shipment.

The verdict is in and it is that everyone loves the new location at the Radisson Hotel of Nashua. The staff were friendly, the accommodations were first class, the auction room was big enough (barely) and the parking lot trading moved into overflow mode.

It also helps that we exceeded our previous record sale amount by more than $57,000.00. The auction took nearly 1 1/2 hours longer than normal to finish, thanks to the many gentlemanly disputes in the room that were settled, in civilized manner, with bid cards, rather than with swords or dueling pistols.

We will have more information about items sold and prices, but we have much to do still and this will necessarily be brief.

We want to congratulate auctioneer Paul Wilmott on another great sale, and, at the risk of encouraging one whose hat size is rapidly approaching that of Our Founder, we also congratulate young Christopher Wilmott, age 12, who donned jacket and tie and put in a stellar command performance auctioneering under great pressure. Not bad for a punk.

Thanks again to everyone for a great auction. We will be back in Nashua at the Radisson of Nashua on May 3 & 4, 2019. And don't forget to join us in Indianapolis, where we will have another heapin' helpin' of tools from the Collection of John & Janet Wells.

See you soon.

Today's Featured Tool Description

Wilkinson & Co., A. J./ Boston, Ma : 8" Pat. Folding Hdl. Draw Knife. Pat. July 16, 1895. Excellent Condition. Length: 12.50 Inches. The first time I sold tools at the markets in Brimfield, Massachusetts, a man came to my booth and bought all of the folding handle drawknives I had. A student of the business opportunity, I returned to Brimfield the next show loaded down with drawknives. The man returned and bought every single one of them once again. Needless to say, by the time the next show rolled around, I was the folding drawknife king. Back he came and buy he did. Dumbfounded, I had do ask. What do you do with them? He looked from side to side, as if to make certain that no one would hear, then said, in a low voice, "I coat them with oil." "Then", he continued, "I put them in a barrel, cover them with sawdust and start another layer." Before I could stammer out a response, he finished, "I'm working on my sixth barrel." While we place no requirements on the tools purchased here, we would recommend this one for a place of honor in the workshop or collection. A nice tool and a true story. (GOOD+). This item was sold on April 16, 1999 for $135.00. jpg_file
