    I’m going to be in Columbus, OH on business for two weeks and I need something to do on the weekend…  Anybody on here know where good old tool dealers or flea markets are in the Columbus area?

    Eric,

    In case you don’t find tools in Columbus,  this is an online guy. I signed up for his tool sale list, he has a ton of stuff and sends out a monthly list.  I haven’t purchased anything from him but probably will in the future.  I got this from a member on this site.

    Thanks, Dave.  Yeah, I’ve been on Pat Leach’s list for a while, bought from him a couple of times and met him once at a tool show in Harrisburg, PA.  He’s a great guy, and a  tool-pusher extraordinaire.  If you meet him in person, you’ll almost always walk away with more tools than you meant to buy.  His tools are nice, usually primo user or collection grade.  And his prices are fair, but definitely not on the low side.

    Not really looking for anything in particular.  Columbus just seemed like the kind of town that would have some good stashes of old tools, and I’m looking for something to do after hours and over the weekend to get my woodworking fix.

    That’s good to know Eric, I received his list last week and he’s got loads of stuff.  Good to know he’s legit too as I might just buy some stuff from him.  How goes the saw hunt 🙂

    BTW, for Dave and all, Pat’s list that comes out every month only lists the new items that he has not listed previously.  If you’re looking for something specific, you don’t have to wait for it to show up on the list.  Email Pat directly and chances are fair that he’s got a couple at various price points.  That’s how I got a whole set of 8 very nice plow irons.

    If you’re still looking for something to do this weekend, contact Ron Herman.  He is teaching a class on Saturday, which you can see at woodworkingwithron.com  He is a 3rd genreation master housewright, with more hand tools than I have ever seen.  He could direct you to the local honey holes for sure.
