Antique & Collectable Hand Tool Market

The HTPAA is not able to hold its Antique & Collectable Tool Market in the regular indoor venue due to COVID restrictions.

We have arranged to have an outdoor market on Sunday 21st March at the National Steam Centre, 1200 Ferntree Gully Rd, Scoresby. (Eastlink Freeway adjoins the Steam Centre).

This is the venue where the HTPAA hold displays during the Melbourne Steam Traction Engine Club's annual Steamfest held on the March long weekend.

The Tool Market will be on a lawned area and will will run from 9am to 2.30pm.

Entry will be $5 per person.

Please see the flyer for further details including contacts and a map of the general location.

E. Kennedy is listed as a toolmaker in 1928 in Exhibition St Melbourne.

Kennedy planes were invariably of Blackwood and well made. They are uncommon on the tool collecting scene which suggests that few were made. Blackwood timber (Acacia melanoxylon) is prized for fine furniture and cabinetmaking.
