    I know several of the guys on here know their stuff when it comes to old tools and all things vintage. Thought I would post a couple pics of items I’ve had a chance to pick up here lately. See if they might have any value. 46417948-FF65-4811-A463-3F20E9F84ABE.jpeg

    Axe prices are through the roof from just a few years ago. Vaughan axes are great axe's, but aren't as collectable as others. Vaughan is known for their hammers, and still a great American company!

    In the basement
    Great looking ax.

    Did you also get a hatchet?

    Thanks Feedman. I picked up several axes and after I got to studying up on them a little I realized that the hatchet I had used since finding it in the corner of Paps workshop as a kid might be something. So I cleaned it up a bit and found some markings. Also don’t know much about this one. F1CAF548-4B7B-405B-B1F3-B4FDCA8C6557.jpeg 76B0DDAE-B066-4921-8A6A-B8FEB893256E.jpeg
    Plumb. No other markings that I’ve found so far.

    I’ve got several more that I will try to clean up a little tomorrow and post up. I don’t know squat about any of it but I can see where they could become an addiction if I’m not careful.

    My old boss/mentor always had a Vaughan beater. I didn’t know they were an American company.

    Vaughan, and Council tool are the only American made striking tools that I know of.
    Edit: for Estwing.

    I have always had an estwing. I started to feel real guilty about my beater choice. Their website claims American made.

  15. I swung a many roofing hatchets when I was younger, both Vaughn and Plumb. That Plumb brand hatchet is a dandy!
