News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York, where we have been busy.

As you can see from today's Photo Montage, we are in the process of filling every nook and cranny on the expansive Donnelly Compound with tools for you to justify the trip to the Finger Lakes Region of Western New York State.

Our annual claim of "one hundred tons of tools" is bolstered somewhat by 25 tons of anvils and blacksmith's tools, some of which are shown in the second photo in today's list. More than 2300 lots have all ready been set up in the tents where they will be ready when you get here.

We also have two 40' x 80' tents filled with the many large lots that are the signature of this auction. As always, we expect great weather for the auction with daytime temperatures in the low 80's and only a few light, scattered clouds.

We have nearly finished painting the lines on the dealer fields and the parking spaces and all of the signs are now in place.

Tomorrow we will finish unpacking the large lots and the rest of the treadle operated machines before bringing the final 900 lots our of the warehouse to be set up on Monday. By the end of the day on Tuesday, we expect everything to be in place.

We are looking forward to seeing many of you next week for a great auction, Antique Tool Fair and a great time.

Today's Featured Tool Description

Unmarked : 18th C. Trepanation Brace. Fitted Leather Case. Essentially Complete. Length: 12.00 Inches. Designed for the once-common medical practice of trepanation--the removal of circular sections of bone from the skull to reduce pressure from swelling on the brain, this extraordinary French brace has been preserved in nearly new condition in its original leather bound case for more nearly 150 years. Fitted with a turned ebony head and elaborately forged to a decorative form, this brace includes three original bits as well as several saws and other accessories in the classic velvet-lined French fit case. A few accessories are missing, but the tool is essentially complete. A classic specialized medical brace of the type not generally available in the market today. Early and excellent. (FINE). This item was sold on November 25, 2002 for $1,500.00. jpg_file
