Below is the quote from Eddie Hudson a few years back.  I have tried without any luck to locate a link to download some of these vintage catalogs as described.  Can anyone help me with a link to "Dave the Toolman" (catalogs) so I can?
Thanks in advance!

Here's a list of catalogs from "Dave The Toolman"

CRAFTSMAN TOOL CATALOG LISTING

•   Pre-Craftsman tool pages from 1905 Sears Big Book catalog  (78 pages)

•   Rare Craftsman 50th Anniversary catalog. Only 2000 were printed in 1976.  Here is where some Sears employees got their facts wrong.  They say that the pages are reprinted from the 1927 Sears Hardware and Cutlery catalog, and even in the Sears 2002 catalog, they state that the 1927 Sears Hardware and Cutlery catalog are where the Craftsman tools first appeared...WRONG!   There wasn't any 1927 Sears Hardware and Cutlery Catalog...the Craftsman name was acquired in October of 1927, and they first appeared in the 1928 Sears Spring/Summer catalog.  The 50th Anniversay catalog was actually reprinted pages from the 1928 Sears catalog.  Sears doesn't know thier own history!

Dave had a cd for sale with those catalogs on it. They were not available for free download.
