1. I have a friend with a Stanley 45 and 78 planes with several blades who could I contact, who could give him information on the planes and perhaps buy them.

  2. Roy,
    Sorry for the delayed reply…
    We do auction off non-member tools at our Denver-area meetings. Our next meeting is over Labor Day weekend in Denver, but that auction is completely full and we’re not taking more outside consignments for it. We should have a meeting in October or November 2021, but I don’t think a date has been set yet. We could probably sell your friend’s tools at that auction, whenever it might occur. Our policies for the sale of non-member tools is that there can be no reserve price and the club asks for 10% of the total sales to help offset facility rentals. The seller is usually sent payment 1-2 days after the meeting auction. Over the past 30 years or so, I have generally been quite pleased for the sellers with the results of such auctions, because our members all share an interest in tools and generally understand their usability, collectibility, and value.
    You can contact me at stevescruggs1954@gmail.com with any questions. I am the usual contact for auction info and arrangements. I would be happy to offer what advice and info that I can.
    Steve S.

    Sadly, Ted Ulrich died on Dec. 21, 2021. I will appreciate being contacted about selling tools, nails, so many items. Or please send a suggestion for who might help me with this big job. Yes, some power tools also.
    I can also donate some items to area groups who provide learning opportunities for youth or adults learning woodworking, etc.

    • Nancy,
      I am so very, very sorry to hear this about Ted. Please accept my sincerest condolences on behalf of all of Ted’s fellow members in RMTC. I will be in touch with you via phone to discuss your requests. Please don’t rush into anything and please know that we will do everything we can to help you with Ted’s collection. Talk to you soon. –Steve S.

  4. My father Fred Ellis was a former member of your group. He left me a box of books (about 20) on old tools. If any of your group is interested in these you can have them. I live in Lafayette and work in Golden. I can arrange to meet to deliver the box. Thanks – John Ellis
