SOLD: I bought a fair number of these English joiner’s mallets as I was learning about the form. This one has seen a fair amount of use in my shop.
These tools are nice because they have a metal shell that is bound around the striking faces. I believe the striking faces of this mallet are lignum. One of the two striking faces has a chip missing from its edge.
The tool is 12″ long overall. The handle is oak.
Price: $70 plus domestic shipping. SOLD
Terms of Sale I’ll be listing these tools one-by-one. There is no master list of tools. Please don’t ask to come over to my house. Every day I list a tool I’ll post what I know about the tool, its history, plus photos of it. While you can ask me all the questions you like about the tool, the first person to send me an e-mail that says: “I’ll take it,” gets the tool. Simple. To buy a tool, please send me an e-mail at email@example.com.
Payment: I can accept PayPal or a personal check. As soon as the funds arrive, I’ll ship the tool using USPS. If you want insurance, let me know. I’m afraid I can only ship tools in the United States. Shipping internationally is very time-consuming and paperwork-heavy. My apologies in advance on this point.
If you don’t like the tool when you get it, I’ll be happy to refund your money if you return the tool. But postage is on you.
