The D?Elia Antique Tool Museum, located in Scotland, Connecticut,

All of the antique planes were acquired by Andrew over the last 35 years.

The collection consists of rare Stanley, Sargent, Connecticut
plane makers, and a number of Dutch and English planes.
Also on display is a collection of rare 18th century wooden plane makers such as F. Nicholson,
Chelor, I. Nicholson, I. Jones, Jo. Fuller, Jn. Tower, and others.

Andy?s extensive collection also has many examples of patented transitional planes from 1820
to 1940, featuring inventors such as Knowles, Holly, Loughborough, L. Bailey, Rodier, Worrall,
and many other rare inventors.

Not sure where most of the members are located, but the Museum might make be a good field trip for the Chapter.
