Lookee What Followed Me Home Today!

:yeah:  https://www.kijiji.ca/v-hobbies-craft/barrie/leather-craft-tools/1414225267?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true&fbclid=IwAR3pgIymwiwxWTia_i1NhEC6i67R2F1Ixu8JbBGZrqj77aaMjj0Q8sB9rvE

I still haven't had time to take a really close look at what I've got, but from what I saw in the shop, it was well worth the price!

The stamps are a mixed bag: some are Craft Tool made in U.S.A., some are Craft Tool made in Taiwan, and some are non-Tandy stamps made in Japan. There are over 100 stamps!

Funny, I have the same X-Acto set.  You did great, hope you find some gems in there.

Anyone familiar with Barontoola stamps, and Craft Japan?

Also, which stamps are older, Craftool Co. or Craftool U.S.A.?

I think craftool USA is older and craft Japan are supposed to be pretty decent.

The Craftool Co. stamps are older than the Craftool USA stamps. The Craftool Co. with a number only were pre 1963 and the ones with a letter prefix and a number were made prior to 1968. They then became Craftool Co. USA and later Craftool USA.

As I sort through these, I see I am going to have some stamps available for sale. There are a few duplicates, as well as duplicates of stamps I already own.

Many of the Craftool stamps are the older ones I've been wanting! :rolleyes:

Some of the more common stamps have the numbers and letters nearly worn away from use... :huh:

The former owner engraved his name (Heyden) on some of the tools. I wonder what happened to him...:(

It's interesting to see the difference between older and newer tools with the same numbers. I have 3 versions of the 707 veiner. The oldest one is the smallest (Craftool Co., no letter) while the 2 newer ones (Craftool USA) are very similar, but one is just slightly thinner than the other!

As you can probably see from the photos, there's an Al Stohlman brand trim knife, made in China. I'm assuming this is probably going to be of the same quality as the Al Stohlman round knives, which won't hold an edge because the steel is such poor grade?
