I received a new hand tool today that was made in Sheffield, England. A brass and wood handled brad pusher. Not some cheap Chinese crap, this is a fine tool. I’m proud to add it to my hand tools and will be installing quarter round trim starting tomorrow. Thank you to the fine craftsmen in England from a Southern boy in America.

Shouldn't you be on an Ace hardware forum, oh wait this isn't about your tool is it?

RE: Thank you England
I still use some of the woodworking tools given to me by my grandfather, some of them his dad gave him.

The hand finishing plane is a delight to use and gives a much better finish than an electric.

I've got turn of the (20th) century hammers, saws, (which I still can't sharpen as well as my grandpop), rasps, you name it.

Quality you don't see anymore, for sure.

Being a tradesman certain tools are a joy to use.

I.like to give thanks for the food I eat and the tools and other necessities of life I acquire.

I can definitely relate.

RE: Thank you England
I have power tools but prefer to use manual tools. It’s a great stress reliever. The oldest thing I have is a 1907 brace and bit that has been handed down over and over. My woodworking mistakes are just considered my signature and there’s a boring story behind each one. By the way, I’m using a 60 year old miter box to cut the trim.

Thank you to the USA....

As a Carpenter & Joiner - I totally LOVE (would NOT be without) my ESTWING claw hammer (I've had for over 30 years).

I've brought crap tools in the past long term they are a waste of money. Good to buy quality tools. Sheffield is well known for producing high standards tools.

Always a clean chop.
