It’s #NationalHatDay! To celebrate this totally legitimate holiday we’re running a quick sale on our Heritage Tool Co. embroidered hats. Save 10% through tomorrow when you buy a hat from our Etsy shop. If you have a giant head like me you are out of luck since we’re down to S/M and M/L sizes but when these run out we can place another order for snapbacks so you can resize as needed.

Trying to salvage the original handle on this Stanley hammer. Any hammer or axe folks know if this will work with the right wedge, or is the handle taper going to cause the head to slip? The original handle end was split and broken so I had to remove about 1/4”

It’s going to take some convincing to pry this original Nicholson file box out of my hands! 😍

It’s the first Friday of 2019 and you know what that means… time to start an inventory of the office tools with a #flaylayfriday 🙌

I’m not really one to make a list of resolutions, but when I do I like to set the bar low and of course I only use a Heritage Tool Co. branded notebook. On the list this year:
.
1) Restore more tools
.
2) Learn a new skill - Screen printing, letterpress and maybe a little woodworking
.
3) Buy more locally - I’m extending this one beyond local to include fellow Instagram friends who make quality goods here in the USA
.
4) Definitely not doing this one, the hoard stays right where it is
.
What’s on your list?

Here it is, your favorite posts of 2018! 🙌 Thank you all so much for sharing your ideas, comments and tips over the past year. I’ve learned a lot and had a great time sharing vintage tools and tool restorations, plus a healthy dose of #flatlays. Looking forward to more in 2019!

Just out of curiosity I looked up the #2018bestnine for @officialstanleytools and would you look at that... number 6 is a familiar flaylay featuring the vintage Stanley tool set we put together! 🙌😍 pretty sure I recognize a few of the other shots too, possibly @stanleytoolman or @jessbuttery? .
It was an honor to be featured on the Stanley page especially on their 175th anniversary! Great to see them connecting with dedicated fans of their history too 👍
