International Tool Catalog Library
#11
  
About a year ago I started uploading tool catalogs that I have scanned onto the Internet Archive (Archive.org). In July the uploads got a name, International Tool Catalog Library, and it's now up to 562 catalogs and other items. This includes many of the old Rose Antique Tool scanned catalogs, and whatever I could find on Google Books. There are many on woodworking hand tools, and you can pick topics or manufacturer to help find what you want. In addition to American, there are 42 English catalogs, 31 French catalogs, and a few others. Please bookmark it, download and save what you want, and spread the word. Wiktor Kuc is using some of my scans for WK Fine Tools. 

If you have scanned something that you'd want to add to this effort, please contact me. I'm particularly looking for the big names like Stanley and Millers Falls, including tool instructions.

Wow!  Thanks for this.  I'll dig through this winter, when it's raining and I can't work on the house/in the shop, and see what I can find.

It would be helpful, if you have size limits or suchlike for PDF files, to put that on your website.

Good man!
I don't want to brag, but some of my wood is on its 2nd or 3rd project!
