Tools are the “Tooth of Industry” widely used in the field of hardware and machine manufacturing. As we all known, the revolution of abrasives is always preceded to the industry revolution in any country. With the continuous development of manufacturing industry, China as the member of WTO and the speeding up process of economic globalization, which lead to a broad market for the tools, abrasives, super abrasives and grinding technique industry, at the meantime, it requires higher request and more challenge in this industry.

You might begin to believe hand tools will soon disappear as you scroll through today's tools catalogs. With the development of cordless tools, pneumatic tools and lasers, it almost causes one to believe that conventional hand tools belong somewhere closer to the Stone Age than today's workshops. Hand tools are being defined as those instruments that rely on the energy of the user for power. These tools include screwdrivers, planers, sanding blocks, hammers, saws and others. The assumption these tools are out of date is simply not accurate.

Actually, before electric power , all woodworking was done with hand tools. These old hand tools are now antiques or at least sought as collectibles. In additional to their aesthetic value as nostalgia from an earlier time, many of these tools are still excellent to use for their original purpose, which is working wood. Old hand tools are functional and intriguing collectibles.

An old hand planer is an interesting item for collectors. The hand planer, which is still made today, is a handy tool for shaving off layers of wood. These tools have been created from a variety of materials and are nearly indestructible. Early hand planers were created from a wooden block with the adjustable cutting blade set into the block. Later designs were created from metal. These old tools represent an era of hand craftsmanship that spoke of quality and durability.

Another interesting and highly collectible antique hand tool is the hand saw. Old saws come in a wide variety of designs and teeth arrangements. They were used for ripping and for finish work. Perhaps one of the most distinguishing characteristics of these old saws was the handle. The handles were often decorative and uniquely shaped. Long before the word ergonomic was coined, craftsman understood that they would be using their tools for long periods each day and that they must be comfortable to hold and to use.

Most old Hand tools are collected for the uniqueness and nostalgic qualities given to them. Most do not have great monetary value, like other antiques. Still, they are fun to collect. They can be found in antique stores, flea markets, estate auctions and backyard sales. They are also available on the Internet. One advantage to buying old tools on the Internet is that you can find greater variety, including many old hand tools from various countries around the world.

For some jobs, it is just easier to use hand tools. Also, for some people, there is a special satisfaction that comes from doing a task with a hand tool. Perhaps it is a connection with a father or grandfather who would have done the job that way. Or, perhaps it is a reverence for the wood and the project that is shattered by the roar and clatter of power tools.

Antique tools are valued by collectors and others because of their uniqueness and the connection they give us with nearly forgotten eras. Antique woodworking tools such as hand planers, saws, levels, gouges and many other such tools cause us to marvel at the skill of ancestral craftsmen. These tools are interesting in the tasks they accomplished and the technologies employed.

There is a special satisfaction that comes from working with wood. For many, the reward is in the doing much more than in the finished project. For these people, tools provide a connection with the project and require skills and techniques that contribute to making the project worthwhile. Often, these people find this is best accomplished by working with hand tools.
