Chairpanzee & Lump Hammer in the U.K.

The Crucible Tool “Chairpanzee Analog Computer” and “Lump Hammer” are now available to order through the U.K.’s Classic Hand Tools (along with the Card Scraper and Design Curves). That’s good news for non-U.K. overseas readers, too, because Classic Hand Tools will ship to most countries.

Both the Chairpanzee and the lump hammer are, in a way, simply returning home; both ideas came out of England. The Chairpanzee is the brainchild of Ed Sutton of FirstLightWorks, and the lump hammer is an idea brought to woodworking by the great English craftsman Alan Peters (that Christopher Schwarz picked up from David Savage).

Classic Hand Tools also carries the full line of Lost Art Press books.
