Visit to Gettysburg, PA and Lancaster, PA areas


I am going to be visiting the Gettysburg, PA and Lancaster, PA areas soon and was wondering if there are any good woodworking tool stores in the area? Any good vintage tools stores to visit? Thanks, Jeff

Good thing I didn't know about that 2 yrs ago! We visited Lancaster area for a weekend, and I'm afraid if I'd known about Wilke, things would have gotten a lot more expensive than the $600+ quilt!

You was buying Amish.
Dey ain't no Amish at Wilke.
Dey is Chiwanese at Wilke.

Worked for a company based in downtown York once.
Great tavern across the street that had been in operation since the mid 1700's.
If you plan to visit the Gettysburg battle field, you want to allow at least a full day, especially if you are a history buff.

This one is much more obscure and time dependent. If you will be in the area Aug 27th to September 4th there is a historical steam engine show. Its not just steam engines. There is a guy with a steam powered saw mill set up and milling lumber all day. I have just watched for hours in awe! There is also a flea market that you can sometimes fine some good ole hand tools or farm equipment. Some of these guys are really serious about their farm equipment and have 50+ year old stuff looking factory new. It looks like the adjacent park may be closed, if not you can send in the wife and kids and have at the show all day. Anyway, see http://www.williamsgrovesteam.org /
Lets see - Another obscure thing - Wolgemuth auction. This is a building supply, lumber auction in Leola. Its held the 2nd Thursday of the month. I have found some tools there but it can be hit and miss. Also, sometimes stacks of hardwood. I got a decent porter cable air compressor for $85, new, cosmetic only damage. Saw a huge northpoint unipoint radial arm saw (440v 3phase) go for $400. I have found lots of odds and ends (Cabinets for a dollar, plumbing, millwork, windows, doors). Fun to check out, you never know what you will find. Interesting to watch the Amish load up their buggies 10' high with their hauls! See http://www.wolgemuth-auction.com /
Post back if this is the sort of thing you are looking for, or not.
