If you are a bookbinder with tools or equipment to buy, sell or exchange,
then you have come to the right place!
If you are looking for tools or equipment, scroll through the entries
below. If you find what you are looking for, use the email link to make
contact. If you have tools or equipment to offer, then complete and send
the entry form. Your entry will appear at the top
of the list on this page. Email me
when you get a response, and I will remove your entry from the list. You
can also email me if you need to
change any details in your entry.
If you want to advertise your bookbinding services, please keep it brief. Ditto
for bookbinding courses. For long entries, email me
and I will set up a link for you from my Discover Bookbinding page.
Long or irrelevant entries in The Bookbinder's Toolbox are an inconvenience for
other users, and will be removed without notice.
Don't worry if you experience some delay between posting your entry and
seeing it appear on the page. It's just the server processing your request in the background.
Thanks to Laura Lemay for providing the original
guestbook script that forms the basis of this service. If you're interested
in writing your own CGI scripts, Laura's book Teach Yourself Web Publishing
with HTML in a Week (last updated to cover HTML 4) still provides an excellent
introduction. These days Laura seems to have switched from writing books to blogs,
and from html and perl to Dreamweaver. Sign of the times I guess.

| I have a rare Bookbinding Machine for sale, its a Backing Press from the mid 1800's, purchased from London for The South Australian Government Printing Office, no rounding rollers on this one, but may never been.
Is perfect for rounding and backing your books, I paid a fair bit for it 20 years ago, and it was rare then. Press is marked with a damaged plate "Harrild & Sons Printers Engineers London E.C." $2500|
