The VINTAGE TOOL SHOP, that has been open since February 2019 in 549 High st, NORTHCOTE 3070 is the ONLY dedicated vintage tool shop in Melbourne & Australia.

We (Mike & Mari) have been selling VINTAGE & ANTIQUE TOOLS in vintage bazaars, online via eBay (www.VintageToolsMelbourne.com.au) & Etsy, markets & tool sales etc since 2012.

We know that people always need GOOD TOOLS & we offer unique items that are high quality USER GRADE or COLLECTOR grade ANTIQUE HAND TOOLS.

Beside selling vintage tools, we manufacture our bespoke HERITAGE SAWS brand of dovetail & carcase SAWS for woodworkers, proudly made in the workshop of our shop here in MELBOURNE.

We also offer freshly HAND SHARPENED SAWS - it’s our specialty. We also do custom sharpening & give advice to customers to suit their particular requirements. We have plenty of saws in our workshop, so if you want anything from a Kenyon to a Disston hand saw or tenon or sash or carcase or dovetail, please write us or give us a call or even better, drop in for a chat about it & see some saws or tools.

Norris, Spiers, Disston, Stanley, Preston, Millers Falls, Goodell Pratt, North Brothers, Ward, Sorby, Erik Anton Berg, Spear & Jackson, Titan, Kenyon, Taylor Brothers, Beardshaw – to name a few of the iconic TOOLMAKERS that we stock. If you collect a particular tool or maker, please let us help you find that missing piece in your collection.

Axes, hatchets, hand saws, tenon, sash, carcase, dovetail, gents, pad & hacksaws up to one man crosscuts, planes, infill planes, moulding planes, chisels- beveled, gouge, firmer, mortice, carving, cold etc, bevels, marking gauges, mortise gauges, butt gauges, pliers, levels, braces, eggbeater drills, auger bits & sets, awls, spokeshaves, drawknives, adzes, natural sharpening stones, barber hones & stones, straight razors, tapes, plumb bobs, lead dressing sticks, plumbers bobbins, hammers, mallets & many more.

We are proud of what we do, it’s also GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT TO RESTORE & REUSE, not just throw away & buy a new one, but we acknowledge that not everyone has the skill set or facilities to restore their own tools or space to do so, hence we provide sharpened & sensitively restored tools for those people.

We also offer a SHARPENING SERVICE for tools that we sell, including razors, chisels, planes, axes & knives.

Tools are TAX DEDUCTIBLE for users, they also don’t lose their value if well looked after & even help you to make you living if you are a maker, plus they never go out of fashion. Tools are cool!

And if you have a collection to dispose of or some tools that you don’t require & wish TO SELL, please CONTACT US as we are always looking to buy quality tools.

GIFT VOUCHERS are available if you are unsure of what to buy a friend or loved one – you can purchase in store, online or send us an email to info@vintagetoolshop.com.au if you require a printable voucher.
