I’m a ‘Maker’ (woodworker mostly) and over the years I’ve collected assorted antique tools. Because I live in Easton, Mass, I also have collected locally manufactured products, mostly surveying equipment and thermometers & barometers by the Pool family of Easton. Since I like to share the results of the research I’ve done. Here is some information about the Pool family, and the products they manufactured between c.1820 and c.1880.
