I have set up this site to be a source
of reference information on vintage hand tools (mostly
Stanley). I hope to add more information on using the Stanley

also like to add as many instruction manuals as possible to this page.
Please email me if you have any
manuals, ideas, tips or techniques to share.

shared with anyone, and will never be shared with anyone.
