Welcome to Old Street Tool

We are no longer accepting new plane orders.

To our customers:

We've been fortunate to have the best customers any business could hope for. We value this and sincerely thank every one. Most who would be interested in ordering know we have a large back order list and getting planes from us often involves an unreasonable wait.

As we face the uncertainties of growing older we've begun looking at our back order list with concern. The large list makes it impossible to predict delivery dates. We also face an untenable disconnect between quoted prices and ever increasing material and overhead costs. Because of this we've suspended accepting any new orders for hand planes until current orders are filled. Orders for DVDs will still be gratefully accepted.

It will take several years to work through our backorders. Then we'll reassess how we want to proceed, but we intend to continue working in some fashion as long as we can. We want to remain accessible and feel our list of planes is instructive regarding the system of essential planes required in hand tool informed woodworking. For these reasons we'll keep our web site live but have removed prices from the list of planes.

Thank you,
Larry Williams
