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.

I am interested in talking with you about this effort.  What is the best way to contact you?

Just got up to this topic. Outstanding work & collection.
Kudos and THANKS for such a compilation of resources.
If you continue to cut corners, you'll end up going in circles!

It's my thumb so I'll hit it if I want to!

Me too. I've got a 20's or 30's Stanley catalog I'd like to add if needed.

This is a resurrected old thread, so maybe Mark's not watching after a year and a half. Maybe you can contact him on facebook, (he's recently been on "saws, using, collecting, cleaning and restoring")
