Here are Some of Our Favorite Links

Google Search Engine  Undoubtedly the best search engine available.  Unbeatable for relevancy, ease of use, results, etc.

Antiquesurveying.com    Robert Parrish's site not only has an extensive listing of instruments and accessories for sale but he also provides a service to repair, restore, clean, adjust, and calibrate surveying and scientific instruments.  

The Hardware Companies Kollectors Klub   Here is the place to go to learn more about Keen Kutter, Winchester, E. C. Simmons, Diamond Edge, OVB, and all the other great early hardware companies.  Two yearly meets are held in Missouri which include an amazing auction, tailgate sales and lots more.  

ISMACS  This International Sewing Machine Collectors Group publishes a quarterly magazine and hosts several international conventions and auctions as well as their informative website.

Sewing in Surf City  This is my friend Nancy's blog, and if you are into sewing, fabric, and fashion you'll want to take a look and add it to your favorites.  It's a fun read, and will make you want to start on that next sewing project!

Simmons Auction Co.   This top-notch Missouri auction house conducts outstanding specialty auctions for tools, pressing irons, Griswold and cast iron cookware, graniteware, and lots more great stuff.   A well done and very informative site. 

PITCA   Here is where you can join the oldest and largest sadiron collecting club around.  This group, originally founded as Midwest Sadiron Collectors Club in 1984, is now Pressing Iron and Trivet Collectors of America.  Even if you never get to any of the annual conventions their quarterly newsletter "Pressing News" alone is well worth the modest yearly membership dues. Their resource library of books, articles and iron-related information, from which you can borrow by mail, is second to none.

Jon Zimmers Antique Tools   This is one of the better antique tool sites on the Internet.  Jon has the distinction of being one of the first, and is by the far the best.  

F.W. Muller Toy Sewing Machine Book  This 324 page book was just published by TSM collectors and researchers Rita and Manfred Koym.  It covers the history of the 111 year old factory, a list of patents and registered trademarks, wonderful color pictures of the machines as well as their boxes, and a full catalogue of all known (and unknown) toy sewing machines F. W. Muller Jr. ever produced.  For more details and ordering info, contact Rita directly by clicking on the title link above.  And be sure to visit their toy sewing machine website where you will find pictures of their collection as well as other information and a selection of the toy sewing machines they have available for sale or trade.  

Treadleon.net  The primary purpose of the site is to share information with other collectors of treadle operated sewing machines from a bygone age.  If you are looking for information about your vintage treadle sewing machine this site is the place to go.  Don't miss it!

Furniture Knowledge   A nice site full of important information for the working woodworker, as well a nice selection of links to help you find most anything you will ever need related to woodworking. 

MWTCA  Known as Midwest, the king of all tool collecting groups.  Lots of info and a well-presented site.

The Typewriter Museum  This is a new and very worthwhile typewriter site with lots of information on some rare as well as many more typical machines that are involved in this interesting collectible.
