Another great resource I discovered is a little shop in Malvern called the Patra Hardware and Secondhand Tools. A treasure trove of secondhand and recycled tools and hardware which reminds me of the hardware stores of my youth. You can find almost anything here including vintage screws, nails, hinges, locks etc, etc. I recently picked up a coping saw, made in England, and a set of blades made in West Germany which will fit right in with Grandad's vintage tools.
