I always have tons of emails
asking "What is my tool worth"?
Please note that I am not
an appraiser, but I always tell them a tool is worth as much as a collector is willing to pay for it. It all depends on condition
and how rare the tool is.
Another place online
you can check for antiques is www.kovels.com they don’t have much on tools but lots of other antiques.
As I mentioned there are a
lot of books out there a few are:
Antique & collectible Stanley Tools pocket price guide by John Walter
Antique Tools Our American Heritage by Kathryn McNerney
The Antique Tool Collectors Guide to Value by Ronald S. Barlow
Keen Kutter Collectibles by Jerry & Elaine Heuring
A Price Guide to Antique Tools by Herbert P. Kean
Antique Trader tools Price Guide by Kyle Husfloen
