Breathe new life into old woodworking hand tools!
There’s nothing more satisfying than bringing a fine old woodworking tool back to life. Restoring old hand tools the right way can save you money, and provides you with a high-quality tool that’s often more precise than modern-day replacements.
In the woodworking double-disc video, Buying & Restoring Hand Tools, traditional hand-tool expert Ron Herman will help you assess individual tools and shop for the best deal to ensure you’re making a smart purchase. Once you have what you know is a quality tool, learn how to bring it back to working condition and tune it for maximum performance.
Join Ron Herman for 6+ hours of instruction as he explains exactly how to restore:
- hand planes
- drills and bits
- marking gauges
- and more.
