News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York, where we are finally not complaining about the cold weather.

We have been busy adding items to our Summer and Fall Auctions from the fabulous Gary Trinkle Collection. We are certain that you will be impressed with the great eye for quality that is reflected in the items from the Trinkle Collection. We will be displaying those items as we approach those auctions.

We have been working on adding "Big Stuff" to the July Auction including work benches, large power tools, tool chests and the like. As always, those Summer Auction items are photographed in the grass in the front yard.

Today's Photo Montage begins with an aerial view our Upper Greensward Market Venue filled with dealer setups, followed by a view of the crowd from an earlier July sale. The final two photos show the last items being put away from today's outdoor photography session and the final photo shows the Upper Greensward Market Venue as it looks most of the time, except in the snow and cold--ooops...there's another cold weather complaint.

We are putting together a trip to Connecticut, Maine and Massachusetts to pick up consignments of tools. If you are in the Greater New England Area and have items for inclusion in our upcoming auctions, please give us a call at (800) 869-0695 or by email at mjd@mjdtools.com .

Today's Featured Tool Description

Hight/Toledo, O. : "Hight Micrometer" Level. Pat. Apld. For. New Cond., Orig Case. Length: 24.00 Inches. Perhaps it was because the original owner of this excessively complex level had doubts about its practicality, or its fragility, that he constructed a fitted wooden case for it. The foresight of that original owner has bequeathed to this generation of antique tool collectors a spectacular example of the Hight Inclinometer Level. Produced in Toledo, Ohio, sometime in the first quarter of this Century, the Hight inclinometer features plumb and level vials, a turnscrew to facilitate precise adjustment and a central, semicircular protractor. A hanging, gravity-activated indicator is suspended from the top plate of the level. Retaining nearly 100% of all original finishes on both wood and metal surfaces, this example of the inordinately complex and graphic Hight Inclinometer Level is one of the most spectacular of that class of tools that we have been privileged to offer. A great inclinometer level. (FINE). This item was sold on April 10, 2000 for $2,950.00. jpg_file
