Whoever wins this needs to scan it and make it available as a PDF!!!

The earliest mechanic's tools catalogue available that I know of is 1949...

Damn it all to Hell!!!!  >:(

I just tried to snipe this with a $15.51 bid, but the bid was not accepted since the Seller doesn't ship to Canada. I would have had it sent to my friend in Michigan.

Pissed off...

I bought it! Didn't know you were on it. I will PDF it soon after I receive it and you can send him the file free.

I also bid on a 1937 Williams Catalog- http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220818534261&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

You guys are supposed to mention you're interested, or going to place a bid. I was thinking about bidding on the Williams catalog but won't.

Woohoo! That's excellent news. I only wanted it to make the PDF available anyway since this will be the earliest downloadable Craftsman mechanics tools catalogue.

(I was only having it sent to my friend in MI to satisfy the seller's USA-only requirement; my friend couldn't care less about tools!)


OK, good luck on the JH Williams catalogue too...

You're quite right, eddie. Anything I win will be scanned & made available anyway, so no need to get in bidding wars with others doing the same thing!

I watched the post about it and no one else said they were bidding, so I bid. It will be available to all in PDF format.
I saw the Williams catalog in the suggestions under that Craftsman item, and bid, then told you guys.

Maybe you'll win the Williams also and then we will get two new catalog scans!

Been having problems. I have scanned the Craftsman catalog, but Scribd is being contrary about uploading. I'll try again later.

The Williams is out of my range now- over $16 with shipping. If no one here is bidding, I might toss in one more bid toward the end.

Right, we discussed some of the recent problems with Scribd at GG.

Seems you might require a paid subscription there now? That's no good...

Mickey O offered to host catalogues in that same thread. I presume he's serious...

(I'm out on the Williams catalogue.)

Williams went for $12.05, a dime more than my top bid.
