We maintain a growing collection of excellent craftsmanship projects at the physical museum in Carlsbad, California. The museum, which opened in February, 2011, includes the work of the world's best craftsmen. We also maintain a growing collection of the most significant small machine tools of the past and present. The facility includes a well equipped machine shop manned by volunteer craftsmen, making it possible for visitors to watch a machinist at work. This facility will also become a gathering place where the best craftsmen can share problems and solutions with others at their high skill level in hopes of advancing the level of work for all. Our book collection features titles by some of the best craftsmen and also includes books covering the use, care and history of tools.
