News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York, where we would be if we were not hurtling Northward on Interstate 81 in a Penske truck laden with great tools, including a complete blacksmith shop and a good group of treadle machines.

If you have had the good fortune to type on a laptop computer in a large truck on a less than optimally maintained Interstate Highway, you will understand why this will be brief.

Earlier this week we hosted some friends who had attended the Open House we held in Avoca in conjunction with the 2002 Early American Industries Association Annual Meeting in Rochester, New York. We also conducted an auction of 600 Lots at that meeting.

Given that our visitors were gobsmacked by the many changes we had made since that time, we dug out some old photographs that were taken shortly after we moved in, in the Fall of 1999.

A careful review of the photos convinced us that our visitors were correct. In fact, finding anything in the old photos that was the same proved a bit of a challenge. So, in the interests of producing a newsletter on the road without access to recent photographs, we have included some of those year 2000 and 2001 photos as today’s Photo Montage.

We encourage you to join us in July to see the changes for yourself, but here’s a look at the way we were.
