HTPAA Australian Collection

The HTPAA Australian Collection has tools by a large number of Australian manufacturers. The Collection has been assembled largely by donation with some careful purchases of selected items. The Association thanks all donors who have helped to build the Collection.

The HTPAA welcomes any additional ephemera and reference material regarding Australian tools and makers. If you can supply any of these items, or wish to leave some feedback, please email the Curator.

The HTPAA is compiling information on Australian tool makers as well as information relating to individual tools.

Presently you can view information and images related to:

Individual Australian Makers
Examples of Australian Hand Planes
Australian Power Tools
Australian Wrenches
