Hand Tools

We have carefully selected the best woodworking hand tools for woodworkers and craftsmen - our hand-picked range of chisels, planes, saws, rules, squares, measuring equipment and accessories are all excellent value, offering the perfect balance between accuracy and durability, meaning our hand tools are a sheer pleasure to use for generations to come.

Scrapers, Files and Rasps17

Whether you need a cabinet scraper to get the perfect smooth finish on your project or you need a diamond file to hone the edge of your router cutter, our range of scrapers, files and rasps are some of the best from companies such as Clifton, Titman Edge and Eze-Lap.

Chisels50

The chisel is the ultimate extension of the hand, used for the finest of paring and dovetail fitting or the mother of all the chiselling jobs; chopping mortices. We are proud to stock Peter’s favourite Ashley Iles fine bevel edged chisels, handmade in England with O1 steel. The excellent Narex range from the Czech Republic (available in bevel-edged and mortice chisels) and the WoodRiver butt chisel set also offer excellent value for money.

Chisels
Drills and Jigs35

Clean and accurate holes can be perfectly drilled using our Famag lip and spur drill bits or our range of Milescraft and Woodpeckers drilling jigs and drill press tables for accurate location. The Jessem dowel jigs and INCRA HingeCrafter offer incredible consistent accuracy with their legendary quality. 

If you’re looking for repeatability, accuracy or fixtures including oval nuts and knobs you’re in the right place. Jigs and templates come in many forms from Micro Jig's taper Jigs and AUKTools' router templates. INCRA’s I-Box sets the standard for quality equalled by that of Woodpeckers with their shelf pin templates and cross dowel drilling jigs.

Planes99

There is nothing more satisfying for a woodworker than the sound and finish that a really good quality plane can produce. The range of bench planes we sell include Clifton - the pinnacle of British engineering with some of the finest O1 steel blades on the market; Canadian brand Veritas who excel at the specialist and low angle bevel-up planes with their PMV11 steel, and WoodRiver - probably the best value-for-money planes on the market today which offer exceptional performance at an affordable price for woodworkers and furniture makers. We stock a full range from block planes to smoothing planes and jack planes through to fore and jointer as well shoulder and routing planes.

Planes
Marking and Measuring137

Joseph Marples have been making marking tools since 1840 and are now working with Peter crafting some redesigned cutting, marking and mortice gauges made to Peter’s exacting standards. 

Our Fisher engineers squares offer some of the best value for money and quality that are available along with a great mixture of the best of Woodpeckers and INCRA 45° bevels and squares. Veritas and JessEm also feature with their range of excellent marking out tools for those who don’t want to follow convention including both standard and dual-marking gauges.

'Measure twice and cut once' has always been the saying, but only if what you are using to measure with, is accurate.  We have a wide range of metric Woodpecker rules and rule stops, INCRA T-rules and centre rules alongside Fisher rules from 150mm to 1000mm (or 6" and upwards in old money for those working in imperial) as well as digital callipers and angle cubes from the excellent iGaging range, or the ultimate woodworking straight edges from Woodpeckers and Veritas.

Saws15

Peter Sefton’s tool shop started when Peter’s students reviewed ten of the best saws from around the world. The clear winners were Sheffield’s Thomas Flinn Pax 1776 saws which are still hand filed and made to order the traditional way, along with the exceptional value über-styled Veritas for those who prefer a lighter saw to use. We have the experience to guide you through your choice of dovetail or tenon saws in either rip or crosscut tooth patterns.
