Tool Makers of
Middletown, Connecticut

Home

Tools Made: Carpenter tools and planes.

Working Dates: 1849-58.

N. (Nehemiah) H. Closson

Listed in Ref. 82 as manufacturing joiners' tools.

     I have not seen any other tools by him with the exception of the rule and hammer below. The rule is 2 foot, four fold. The name and location is on the top edge. The hammer has his name but he was not a blacksmith.

    He was not listed as a blacksmith in any publication but he did make farm plows in the 1840s. So it is possible he made hammers also.
