News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York to whence we have returned following a journey to Michigan and Western Illinois to pick up tools and antiques for our Summer and Fall Auctions.

We will be attending the Early American Industries Association Annual Meeting in Lowell, Massachusetts this week where they will have parking lot trading on Wednesday, an auction on Friday and a tool sale on Saturday, all interspersed with visits to historic sites.

We are in the process of shipping out your purchases from our Nashua auctions and we are working with a minimal number of staff, but going as fast as we can.

As promised last Tuesday, today's Photo Montage shows some scenes of our recently completed Nashua Auction Weekend, beginning with a view of the Radisson Hotel of Nashua, followed by the dreary scene in the parking lot as rain an cold weather put a bit of a damper on this much anticipated aspect of the Nashua Auctions.

The weather outside notwithstanding it was warm and dry in the auction room. The next photo shows some of those on hand for the Thursday evening preview of the Friday sale. The next photo shows some of the many tools that appeared in the parking lot each time the rain paused long enough to put them out.

The final photo shows auctioneer Paul Wilmott seeking the intervention of Divine Providence in order to get more for a lot, so as to benefit the widows and orphans whose items we represent. ( It worked.) that's Paul's son Christopher holding the box. Christopher, who recently received an auctioneering scholarship to a private high school in New Hampshire, called much of the sale as he continues to improve with each auction. He has a way to go to catch up with his dad, but he is coming along nicely.

We look forward to seeing many of you in Lowell, Massachusetts this week and/or here in Avoca in July.

Today's Featured Tool Description

Decatur Coffin Co./Decatur, Il : Patent Spiral Screwdriver. Pat. Oct. 7, 1884. Rare & Excellent. Length: 12.00 Inches. I'll repeat the story only if you don't quote me as the source: Legend has it that these spiral screwdrivers only turn screws in one direction because they were marketed by the Decatur Coffin Company and you only turn screws in one direction when dealing with coffin lids. An uncommon screwdriver that is clearly marked with the patent date. Nice. (GOOD+). This item was sold on August 12, 1999 for $55.00. jpg_file
