Hi Guys

I would like to know if there are any magazines I can subscribe to that only focus on using hand tools. I tried google but don’t seems to find any except hard covers like Tom Fidgen’s books and others. My bookshops here in South Africa keeps magazines like FWW and others but none on hand tools.

I don’t know of any specifically dealing with handtools. Popular Woodworking is a little more old-school than FWW, you might want to check that out. It might have a little more. Honestly, for pure hand tool work, books might be a better route than magazines.

Popular Woodworking has a strong hand tool emphasis, but it is not exclusively hand tool. That is probably your best bet. Lost Art Press, deals in books dedicated to hand tools, so there is some good reading there too.
