We are so happy to have you here.
Have a look around, get familiar with our site. There is so much to see and learn about tools.

In the top left of your screen, you'll see the MENU button.

In the top right of your screen, you'll see a SEARCH button.

Clicking on SEARCH will bring up a text box for you to put your search in. If you put your search in quotes, like "stanley no. 2" then the search will get narrower and more accurate:

It will also tell you how many results there are. If you click on the blue bar (SEE ALL RESULTS), you'll be taken to a page that lists out those results. Or, if you see a top result you like, just click on that product to be taken right to the product page.

TIP- if you want to search just the Jim Bode's Value Guide to Antique Tools use the search box at the top right of the website to search for your tool. When the search results page comes up go the the left side and choose the TAG or COLLECTION named " NEW! Jim Bode's Value Guide to Antique Tools ". You will only get the tools that have been sold.

The MENU is now mobile-friendly, and pops out from the left side when you click it:

 Next, when you are viewing a tool on it's own page put your MOUSE OVER the image for a zoom view. Use the ARROWS < > to either side to view the next photo(s). Then again, put your cursor over each image to get a zoom view.


Finally, if you click on Login, you'll be taken to the login page where you can register for a new account or log into your account. Note that if you had an account on our old site, you'll need to make a new one for the new site.

Your card information is NOT stored on our site. Ever. For privacy and security, we will never see your card info when you use it to check out.

If you would like to place an order, please place your order by clicking "ADD TO CART"  for each tool you would like to buy and complete the checkout process.

If you do not want to enter your credit card number on the site (note our website has the highest security measures in place to protect your information) and it is after hours, just choose CHECK as your payment method, enter in the NOTES section that you will call with your CC the next day and your order will be placed. The item will be marked SOLD. It will be yours and no one else can buy it.

Of course if you have any trouble placing an order just give us a call and we will be happy to place it for you.
