147 years ago, an ambitious, hard-working blacksmith had an idea. Alexander Vaughan, a curious and inventive 18 year old at the time, came up with a new auger design that worked faster and lasted longer in fence-post design.

Many years have passed since Alexander Vaughan was awarded his first of many patents, but one thing hasn't changed: Five generations of the Vaughan family and the dedicated craftsmen who produce their products care a great deal about the tools that carry the Vaughan name, and the care is obvious.
