The truth of the matter is that when these tools were manufactured the population out west just wasn’t as big as it was in the East so there are less tools. Also in Utah you’re going to find that people hold on to them because they were handed down. But in Utah you can still find high quality tools and get a good deal. Your best bet is searching the classifieds on KSL.com. I’ve found Lie-Nielsen tools on there before and some older Millers Falls planes. Right now there’s an “antique” Stanley #45. They’re asking way to much, but half the fun is talking them down on price. Heck, most people even expect it. There’s also some rusty old handsaws on there for $5 each. It’s really hit and miss. Good luck on your hunt.
