Welcome to The Tool Archives.

It appears I have fixed the Account request page.  However, if you encounter issues, please contact me via The Garage Gazette, Garage Journal, G503 Forums, OWWM Forums, or Tool Talk via the username Twertsy and I will manually create you an account.


Welcome to The Tool Archives. This website has been established in order to provide a community venue for discussing, validating and updating the history of Hand Tools, Power Tools, Vises, and Tool Storage Solutions. It is meant to become a "living history," continually updated by you, the community! Please register to contribute to our effort! Once registered, you will notice a Comment section at the bottom of every page. Please use these comments to discuss errors or make suggestions on how to improve this registry. Please use the forms in the menu box to the right to contribute missing tools and relevant examples. The site is fully indexed and searchable. On every page, you will see a link to "Printer-Friendly Version." Selecting this option will produce a "book" containing the content of the page you are currently on, as well as all sub-pages, including pictures.

NOTE: If you copy text and/or pictures from elsewhere on the internet, please paste the link for reference into your comment. DO NOT COPY TEXT FROM ALLOY ARTIFACTS in accordance with the wishes of the authors of that site. NOTE: If you post information to this site, you are authorizing and licensing The Tool Archives to use that information within it's site content. Another note: I find it useful to keep notes. You can click on your user name, the "view recent blog entries" and create your own blog. That's where I keep my research notes, which are also posted up under the "Todd's Research" tab.
