Liberty Tools

If Smith were a moving image we hope it'd look something like Etsy's short film series 'There's no place like here'. One of the latest videos features Skip Brack, owner and 'head tool picker' for the Liberty Tool Company.

Based in Maine, Liberty Tools sources, buys and recycles old tools to artists, makers, builders, mechanics and other people who make things with their hands.

It's Skip's mission to encourage the growth of an independent economy by giving people the tools that they need to produce stuff themselves. 

The three and a half minute video (below) is punctuated with Skip's insightful commentary, which makes for an incredibly satisfying watch. The guy is the real D.I.Y. deal.
