News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York, where reorganizing and changing things has become a way of life.

We have spent the last few days painting and changing our photography studios, where we have implemented some changes in technology that promise to improve the quality of our all ready superior quality photographs even moreso. One of the consequences of that is that we neglected to send this newsletter on Thursday of last week. We apologize for the oversight.

We will be in York, Pennsylvania for the Mid-West Tool Collectors Association meeting this weekend. If you are in the area and have tools or antiques for inclusion in our auctions, please give us a call at (800) 869-0695 or by email at mjd@mjdauctions.com .

We look forward to seeing many of you this coming weekend.

Today's Featured Tool Description

Stanley Rule & Level : Rare Comb. Knife & Screwdriver. "Stanley-Whiz". Pat. No. 1839835. Length: 9.75 Inches. An extremely rare COMBINATION KNIFE AND SCREWDRIVER by STANLEY. The designation "Stanley-Whiz" is printed in blue lettering on the handle of this ca. 1930's short-term Stanley offering. An electrician's knife folds out from the handle and would prove an asset to the user, so long as it was folded back before the user went to work on a troublesome screw and inadvertently did the "hari kiri" thing. By far the finest example of this rare tool that we have seen or offered for sale, the knife blade is in unused condition and the screwdriver handle and blade nearly as nice. Extra special and highly recommended. (FINE). This item was sold on October 17, 2009 for $750.00. jpg_file

Just Added to the Auctions

jpg_file Lot 753. A set of eight dowel machine heads by STANLEY. all but the 3/8" siz. All are in excellent condition. (FINE).(500.00 - 1,000.00) Length: 2 Inches.
