With the council policies of trying to make accessing anything in the central city region difficult I have managed to have an article in the Bristol Post discussing some of this, have a look: : Bristol Post Article
The council say improvement, many business think it is the exact opposite. It is proposing spending over 3 million mainly to aid the very few cyclist who use this stretch of road. Less than 1 in a 100+ compared to vehicle use by my count on a warm dry day. Many of the vehicles had multiple occupants so even a lower use per person.
The changes would perpetuate the added congestion and pollution caused by forcing cars needing to turn left on St Michael’s Hill from Perry Rd or right coming down St Michael’s Hill to drive down and back past the hospital to the Bear Pit roundabout.
The road can be bumper to bumper during rush hour, 20 minutes to move 40 feet at times. Ambulances with blue flashing lights held up as cars can’t move to the side to get out of the way.
People with limited mobility have been let off at my shop with a driver then having to circle for 30 to 40 minutes trying to park. OK, we have too many cars but no realistic alternatives at present.
We are a rather uncommon type of tool shop, one specializing in older hand tools and specially woodworking ones though all other types can be found here..
We have the standard Stanley, Record planes, but also Norris, Spiers, Matheson, Preston, etc. Plough, rebate, bullnose, mitre jointer’s to block planes all here.
Green woodworking tools like froes, side axes, adze, spoon knives. Sharpening stones, chisels, squares and more.
Many of our tools are hard to find elsewhere, the older tools that have a quality now hard to find in new ones made down to a price, the one no longer in production. We add to this with new tools we make or commission for less usual tasks in woodworking or where the very highest quality is needed.
We also have a very wide range of more common second hand tools.
Yes we buy tools (and accept donations). Our customers are buying tools to use on the whole so we like tools in good condition. Age isn’t necessarily a big thing (in tools or people) so grandfathers rusty, broken plane from 1930’s isn’t a valuable antique but it might still be of use to someone. If you want to bring them to the shop give us a call first so Charles is here. We can travel to collect tools as well, again give a call and a date and time can be arranged.
We still only take cash payments
Maybe best to phone first if you are travelling any distance (0117 929 1740). But shouldn’t be any problems, OK except Bristol parking.
