A great benefit of being a member is attending our tool meetings. Our meetings are a great opportunity to meet others that share our interests, buy, sell or trade antique and traditional tools from users to collectable ones. You will see interesting displays and hear informative programs on all sorts of tools and tool related topics. There is nothing like being there to experience everything in person including the tools and the other sights and sounds of our meetings. Friendships are forged, connections are made and knowledge shared. Meetings come in two forms:
Semi-Annual National Meetings
These are three day meetings held in the Spring (early June) and in the Fall (late September or October) at locations that vary across primarily the central US. They feature a wide range of activities for both men and women and include tours of interesting places near the meeting location. To find out more about what these meetings have to offer, please check out the links below.
Area Meetings/Local Gatherings
These are more local or even regional in nature and are typically a day in length. They are held in many different locations as shown below. Activities include buying/selling/trading tools and in most cases, see displays and hear a program of interest. Sometimes a meal is served and there is always a lot of “tool talking” among those attending. To learn more about Area meetings, please check out the links below.
