Identifying Tools

Resource verified by SHCG editorial group

Host: SHCG


In 2013, SHCG held a "What is it?" training day for museum workers to help them identify different types of tools. Jane Rees, from the Tools and Trades History Society, led the training session. It was filmed and a short video containing tips on how to identify tools was produced.
