The Pacific Northwest Tool Collectors invite all tool collectors and dealers to join them at their meetings. To attend, you must be a member of PNTC, a guest of a member, or register at the meeting. You can use the PNTC Membership Form to apply for membership.
PNTC meetings are fairly unusual for tool collector meetings. We focus on education and research into tools, rather than just a buying frenzy (although there is some of that too!). Each meeting has a theme, and members are asked to display tools from their collections in that theme. Displays are judged and each member with a display can talk a little bit about interesting tool trivia shown in their display.
Sales occur at each meeting, but we use a more civilized method than just "run and grab". You'll have to come to a meeting to understand. The meeting place doors open at 7:30-8:00 AM and sales transaction begin about 10:30, after everyone has had a chance to look around. Please contact me or another PNTC member for specific meeting time/place confirmation.
