The Potomac Antique Tools and Industries Association, Inc. (PATINA) is an educational, tax-exempt organization for people who have an interest in the tools, crafts or manufacturing processes of the past.

Formed in 1977, PATINA is a regional tool club based in the Washington, D.C. area. We have members from 24 states, the District of Columbia and several foreign countries. Antique tool collectors, tool users and people simply seeking knowledge are well represented in PATINA's membership. The annual dues of $15.00 includes membership for the entire family and they are welcome to participate in all PATINA events. PATINA's original group of about 30 has grown to over 350.
Our mission is to promote and increase knowledge and understanding of the tools and trades practiced by our American ancestors.

The PATINA website was created to provide regular announcements of upcoming meetings and auctions, reports on past meetings, reviews of relevant publications, and notices of other tool-related events. As an educational organization, PATINA is often invited to stage exhibits and demonstrations for local and national groups that express an interest in early tools and trades.


  

PATINA is sad to report the passing of Bob Rothen on Sunday, January 9th. Bob was one of the founding members of the club. Bob and his wife Patsy made the PATINA tool club unique in many respects, including that both were past Presidents.

Patsy wanted to share that Bob passed away in the presence of their loving daughters, and that Bob had gone to heavenly peace, where the 'finest tools are free to all those present!'

Knowing Bob, we expect he is already offering sound advice and fixing things! We were blessed to have Bob attend our Annual event in Oct 2021.

He will be missed.
