Tool Care, Tool Leather & Tool Chest
We’ve all had or seen tools that have deteriorated due to exposure to the elements, mainly moisture. Our Tool Care range gets tools back into top condition and keeps them there.
Sandflex Handblocks remove tarnish, rust and oxidation without marking the tools, extremely effective.
We use Camellia Oil to keep tools and blades protected against moisture. The Chinese and Japanese have protected their weapons and tools for centuries with Camellia Oil. The beauty is, the oil dries (oxidises) and seals the tool metal. When the tool is used again the oxidised oil removes without leaving anything at all on your workpiece.
Our non-toxic & biodegradable, Australian made Tool Polish brings all metals to a lustrous shine. Great for brass, bronze and steel. See our Tool Care range here.
Leather tool care products also protect tools and keep them safe. Our Australian & French made leather products include chisel rolls, hand scraper and knife pouches. See them here.
The Tool Chest is where we can offer run out products, used workshop, demo, sample and show tools & accessories at reduced prices. Currently we have some very nice Douk Douk knives, an Artifact apron and Boker razors at very special prices. See them here.

Our White Bronze Chisel/Flush Plane has been around us in various forms for around a year now. Our pattern maker is over it, too many changes! He uses Jelutong wood to do the initial shape, changes are easy if you are reducing the shape but not so easy to increase the shape. After we both…
