News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York, where we were yesterday, but, if all is according to plan, we are now in New England.

The presence of "historical" photos on these newsletters is generally an indication that, to use a football metaphor, the punt squad is on the field for a newsletter containing those photos. Today is no exception as we have been going full tilt toward finishing the Spring auctions, so we have no Great Projects to report or new collections acquired to share, but that is about to change.

Many thanks to all of you who have responded to our pleas to help us continue our full color catalogues even as others abandon that medium for so much ether. We are committed to producing the best antique tool auction catalogues available and will carry that commitment forward. Your subscription helps us to do that, and we appreciate it very much. To subscribe for 2018, just click HERE, or give us a call at (800) 869-0695.

As we noted at the outset, we will be in Eastern New York State today and Massachusetts and Connecticut tomorrow. We'll be back with heroic tales of the great trip, the wonders seen and the prizes fairly acquired when we report on Tuesday next. We look forward to seeing all of you at the Spring and Summer Auctions. We appreciate your support.

Today's Featured Tool Description

Greenleaf, F.M./Belmont, Mass. : Rare "Cordage Caliper". With Patent Wheel. Rare & Excellent. Length: 50.00 Inches. A rare "CORDAGE CALIPER" by F.M. Greenleaf, Belmont, Massachusetts with patent rolling wheel. This uncommon caliper for gauging firewood retains its original wheel and is in excellent collector quality condition. The appeal of these tools was reinforced to this writer many years ago as he walked from one end of the Brimfield antique markets to the other and was stopped by dozens of curious and fascinated people who would not otherwise, in their perception, demean themselves by looking at something so unsophisticated as a tool. A nice example in excellent collector quality condition. From the Neil Stoll Collection. (GOOD+). This item was sold on March 19, 2011 for $400.00. jpg_file
