G & M Tools is a small friendly company specialising in the sale and purchase of machine tools, hand tools and all types
of workshop equipment.
Since the formation of the company in 1987 the partners, Tim Muddle and Anthony "Digger" Gardner, have endeavoured to supply high quality equipment at a fair price, starting with hand tools and expanding to machine tools for engineering and woodworking.
Our continuing policy is to offer a large range of good quality used machine tools for both professional and model engineers and woodworkers.
Add to that the huge range of machine tooling, hand tools and workshop equipment and you will see that we can offer a one stop service for the discerning tradesman and amateur.
Our backgrounds are similar, both being local and having an interest in tools and trades. Tims' family have traded at our present address since 1897 as corn merchants and provender millers.
The original mill, a water mill, was destroyed by fire in the early 1970's and was replaced by a large clear span industrial building designed and built in 1975.
The partnership was formed when Tim's father decided to cease trading as corn merchants. This allowed us to utilise this excellent site.
Starting with 80 square meters, which is now the workshop block, we expanded into one half of the main warehouse and later into the whole accommodation. This amounts to over 1000 square metres with overhead gantry crane, excellent lighting and heating to keep the machines rust free and the customers cosy.
All members of staff are very knowledgeable about the business and are passionate about one or other aspect of it.
The partners, Tim and Digger, are both avid collectors of old tools. Tim is also interested in vintage car racing and hill climbing and hopes one day to own a Frazer Nash. Digger is currently restoring his 18th century house and also collects clocks and books.
We try to maintain a relaxed atmosphere at our showrooms, offering customers the chance to wander amongst the stock without being pestered by salesmen. We are always on hand to answer questions and help with queries.
