TOOLS FOR SELF RELIANCE groups collect old and unwanted hand tools from all over the UK. We clean repair and sharpen them, and send tool kits to grass roots community groups in several African countries. At present TFSR Cymru concentrates it’s efforts on Tanzania.
We raise most of our funds by selling high quality refurbished tools here in Wales. We specialise in the edge tool: billhook, felling axe, slasher and hatchet – by some of the fine makers of yesteryear such as Brades, Gilpin, Nash, Whitehouse, Elwell and Parkes. We also stock fine garden spade, fork, rake, hoe, sickle, scythe, shears and other tools such as carving chisel.
