Item details

No lover or collector of old carpenter's tools would pass up this brace - to say nothing of the bit.

Nothing fancy about it, just a simple action tool that can still do the job today.

Yet like all old tools, it has a romantic appeal that encompasses another age - an age that rated craftsmanship as an art and the tools that went with it as their well-crafted accessories.

So, if you're not a collector of old tools and haven't yet had the pleasure of the warmth of their wood and the enviable simplicity of their design, here's a good place to start.

"The secret of being a bore
Is to tell everything."
Voltaire (1694-1778)

Wt: 665g
Overall size (without bit): 25 x 14 cms
