Old Tool I.D. and Vintage Framing Tools
with Joseph Hauck
Tuesday, June 4, 7 to 10 pm

Are you fascinated by old tools? Do you collect old tools? Do you have old mystery tools in your basement or garage?

Old tool collector Joseph Hauck will be giving a talk about vintage framing tools, and offering an opportunity for attendees to bring in antique tools for identification and to find out what they were used for and how.

Hauck’s focus will be on tools which were employed in framing buildings years ago and in constructing the older homes in the region. He will bring many examples of these tools – some of them rare – for display and discussion.

Hauck is a past president of the Collectors of Rare and Familiar Tools Society of New Jersey. Club members collect, use, display or sell old tools. The organization has over 400 members in the U.S. and abroad. Hauck is also the official historian for Lebanon Borough.
