Re: New vintage subforum - please post links here
There is a difference between the two though. In the case of the power tools, the change in the design of the tools has been huge. As such, the people that are interested in the different groups tend to be very disparate.
Hand tool change has been much more subtle. Change in materials, accompanied by small changes in design. The difference between a Bedrock and a Lie-Nielsen is much smaller than the difference between a Wadkin and a Busy Bee. As well the people that are interested in hand tools tend to already have one foot in the 19 century. In my mind, the difference between a vintage hand tool and a modern one is much blurrier than is the case for power tools.
I posted something in hand tools recently that obviously should have gone in the vintage section, but it didn't even occur to me to do so until long after the fact. I personally prefer the vintage to be included with the current era for hand tools.
If a man speaks in the forest, and there's no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong
