Upcoming Tool Auction – St. Charles, MO
If you live in the St. Louis area, you might want to block out a few hours on Saturday, February 2nd, to make your way over to the Lion’s Club in St. Charles, MO, for the 4th Annual Cabin Fever Antique Tool Auction. This auction, done by the Great Planes Trading Company, is the first in a series that contains pieces from a large collection out of Chicago, IL. There is a nice variety of bench planes, axes and hatchets, drawknives, plow planes, and rules (just listing things off from memory), among other things.
A working list of auction items, including photos, can be found HERE.
The auction takes place here:
Harvester Lion’s Club
4835 Central School Road
St. Charles, MO 63304
There is a preview early that morning, from 7 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. The auctioneers like to start selling promptly at 9:30, so plan accordingly.
Yours truly will probably be there; unfortunately, Finley has swimming lessons later in the morning, so I can’t stay for long. But I thought I’d pass the information along in case anyone else was interested in going.
