Welcome to the new Plomb Tools website!

This website is devoted to the discovery and documentation of the Plomb Tool Company’s history. The company made mechanic’s tools under the Plomb name from 1907 until 1948.

This is the third incarnation of the website.  The original site was published by the late Ed Boudinot around the turn of the century and was active until 2005.  In 2006 I launched the second incarnation and things were going well until the hosting service was terminated in 2012.  The website went dark for almost a year while other obligations took priority. I am launching an entirely new site, built with new tools.  The old site had about 85 individual pages.  It will take time to rebuild the content, but I will start with the pages that the collectors visited most.

Visitors are welcome to send suggestions and contributions as soon as I get the comments feature working. (Comments are enabled, but won’t display.)  This is a hobby, so I will get to them as time permits.

Thank you to my friends in the collector community and on Garage Journal, especially geologist, who offered their help, recommendations, and encouragement when the site was going dark.
