    Default second hand tools /machinery

    I expect this has been asked and answered before

    Is there anywhere still operating in Melbourne (northern, if possible) you can go and browse second hand tools and machinery

    I remember fondly buying from a old factory in Niddrie (The Tool Exchange) some hugely long circlip pliers but the web says he is no longer operating

    There was also a mob in High St Thornbury where I picked up some reamers all so long ago

    Found a few websites (pricey!) that call themselves 'vintage' but wanted to do a pilgrimage instead

    Is Echuca too far away for you?
    Rich river dealers, 48/50 Mundarra Rd, Echuca Vic (03) 5480 6505
    is definitely worth a "pilgrimage".

    Not a shop but the Bendigo Swap is on in a few weeks (16-17 Nov), plenty of tools and other treasures to be had there.
    Cheers,
