About G & M Tools

High Quality Used Hand Tools & Machine Tools

 G and M Tools is a small friendly company specializing in the sale of machine tools, hand tools and all types of workshop equipment.

G & M Tools Ltd was created in 1987 by business partners Tim Muddle and Antony “Digger” Gardner.  Their objective was to supply high quality second-hand tools and engineering equipment at fair prices. Since then they have grown an international customer base, supplying hand tools and machine tools for engineering and woodworking which now extends worldwide.

Our continuing policy is to offer a large range of good quality used machine tools for both professional and model engineers and woodworkers.

Add to that the huge range of machine tooling, hand tools and workshop equipment and you will see that we can offer a one stop service for the discerning tradesman and amateur.

The partners, Tim and Digger, are both avid collectors of old tools. Tim spends much of his free time exploring the world on his mountain bike and has recently enjoyed trips to Crete, France and Nepal. Digger enjoys sharing time with his large family as well as maintaining his interest in clocks, woodworking tools and book collecting.

About The Owners

“Our backgrounds are similar, both being local and having an interest in tools and trades. Tims’ family have traded at our present address since 1897 as corn merchants and provender millers. The original mill, a water mill, was destroyed by fire in the early 1970’s and was replaced by a large clear span industrial building designed and built in 1975″.

“The partnership was formed when Tim’s father decided to cease trading as corn merchants. This allowed us to utilise this excellent site. Starting with 80 square metres, we later expanded to take over the whole site. Now with an overhead gantry crane we are able to  move machines in and out of our building with ease and safety.
