    https://nce.reg.eleyo.com/course/1421/adult-winter-spring-2024/introduction-to-hand-tools

    This class will cover how to safely and effectively utilize three basic hand tools: a hand plane, a chisel and a router plane. Through demonstrations and exercises, we will use a hand plane to dimension, smooth and square wood for an oil stone box. We will learn to precisely layout our design with a knife and marking gauge and how to chop and pare with a chisel. Finally, we will finish our boxes with a router plane. The instructor will also address any questions you may have along the way. Project materials (such as wood) are covered by the cost of the class. Tools (planes, chisels, marking gauges and knives, and router planes) will be provided. Note: Please bring an accurate combination square and pencil.

    6 classes on Tu Thu starting March 12

    PATINA Annual Tool Show and Auction

    The next 'annual' PATINA Tool Show and Auction will be held Saturday March 16, 2024 at the Damascus Maryland Volunteer Fire Association Activity Center at 10211 Lewis Drive, Damascus, Maryland, 20874.

    With the ending of major tool events in Nashua and elsewhere, we believe we have the largest tool swap in the country! Attendees at our March, 2023 tool show came from Maine, Wisconsin, Florida, Tennessee and in between!

    The Dealer Tool Sale and Auction will be held rain or shine, wind or snow and is open to the general public. It consists of tailgating (Friday and Saturday outside), a dealer tool sale (inside Hall) and a tool auction (Saturday inside Hall). The vendors/dealers for the tool show set up in the first two thirds of the building and the auction in the last 1/3. The lots are open for inspection all day. The lots usually feature antique tools, planes, chisels and the like but can also have user tools, antiques, collectables, signs and even some scientific-type pieces. PATINA club members, vendors and general public attendees all bid on lots they desire.

    PATINA auctions feature vintage tools from virtually all aspects of the tool spectrum. We love vintage machinist tools, too! If you have vintage Starrett, Brown and Sharpe or Mitutoyo tools you'd like to consign, please contact us!!

    Our auction takes place on the same day as the dealer tool sale and starts at 2:00 pm. You are invited to consign tools or items such as books, catalogs or artwork that pertain to the subject of tools.

    Tailgating is free to the public attendees and dealers, although the club requests tailgating vendor donations to help cover facility expense. The $15 donations will be applied to membership for new members.

    As always at our PATINA tool shows and auctions, you do not need to be a club member to attend or bid on any auction items and their is never a buyers premium.
