Must be a woodworker with an initial T.
A friend of the school donated some tools to the school this weekend and amongst the tools was a steel name stamp with the stamp name T REEVES.
Craftsmen through two centuries have used personal name stamps like this to mark their tools permanently. It would be easy to lose a tool or two when half a dozen men were working on a large project.
Here is the impression made from the stamp. It’s quite crisp and precise.
In our throwaway-saw culture we lose value in the tools we use because we rarely actually earn our living with the tools. Many of the tools I use have served me for over four decades, some are as old as 45 years and many are older because I got them secondhand and they were 50 years old when I got them.
If you know someone working wood with the name T REEVES please ask him or her to contact me. I don’t want a useable name stamp in one of my drawers when it can be used by someone who owns the name.
