Wholesale wood working tools can still be found.
Carpentry started before the medieval period and by the 15th Century most of the tools that the modern carpenter uses had been invented, with the exception of laser measuring tools. Since the carpenter needs to keep his overhead low and the profits high, buying some wholesale or used tools is a good idea for the woodworking entrepreneur.
If you are in the market for some quality woodworking tools and are on a tight budget you might want to consider buying wholesale wood working tools. The downside of this is that there isn't a warranty, but you will save money on equipment. Depending on where you live you may be able to buy used tools at a wholesale store near you, or you could purchase your equipment online at eBay or other Internet companies. The following links are some that you may try out.
Auction houses and estate sales have great discounts on used tools because they buy from businesses that have been liquidated or from carpenters who have died, or upgraded their equipment. If you buy second hand this means that you can have more types of tools in your shop and obtain better quality than you could otherwise. Another source of wholesale or used tools is the classifieds section in the newspaper. They will list current auctions that are coming up. Before you decide to buy wholesale or used tools you must research the brands of new tools that are the best so you can make wise decisions about what brand of tools you should have. Even if it is second hand you don't want to buy junk that will fatigue you while you are working or brands that break easily. Buying used carpentry wood working tools is also good for the environment because you are recycling equipment rather than have it end up in a landfill site. Some finish carpenters like to buy antique tools for their carpentry work. These tools from yesteryear can be found on the following websites:
Buying reconditioned tools are another option that will save you money. What does "reconditioned" mean? It indicates that a tool has been returned to the company in a near perfect state. The customer may have changed his or her mind about buying the tool or the equipment might have a cosmetic blemish like a scratch. These reconditioned tools are inspected and fixed up so they are like new and still have the warranty. A couple online stores that sell reconditioned carpentry tools are the following:
In conclusion - if you need quality tools and can't afford brand new -- think of buying wholesale, used, auction, or reconditioned tools. Make sure that you know what each brand will do and follow the old adage, "Buyer beware".
