Papaw, I can see it & download it! The image quality is excellent & the text can be read quite easily...

However, SCAN116.JPG (pp. 8-9) seems to be missing.

Thank you very much for your efforts in providing this (formerly-missing) piece of Craftsman history to your fellow tool nerds!

BTW, I have "assembled" the individual scans into a PDF file. If anyone knows a way this can be uploaded to a host, please let me know & I will post it. It is 51.1MB...

I had to register and download the "mediafire" toolbar. No big deal, but if you do that, make sure you select the 'custom' installation so that you can tell it NOT to make your home page and default search engine "Ask.Com"
Other than that, it works great. Thank you very much for uploading the catalog for us.

lbgradwell, couldn't you upload the pdf to mediafire now that you have an account there? Seems it would work the same way. Or does media fire limit your size?
YouSendIt.com is another hosting service, but they have a size limit too. Don't remember off hand what it is.
Thanks again! Kit.

Odd, I didn't have to register with mediafire. If necessary, I'd certainly register in order to post the PDF there or at YouSendIt, but in either case I'll wait for Papaw to add the missing scan before doing so.

Stand by...

Scan 116 is not there because it was replaced with another. Pages 8,9 are there in scan 137.

So they are. I wonder what happened there? I didn't download 137 either..??!

Anyhoo, I have now compiled the full catalogue.

Do you want me to post it to mediafire, Papaw?

I'll assume you're OK with this. If not, just let me know & we can move it to wherever you like...

In the interests of efficiency, I edited all the scans to reduce them to a resolution that still permits clear, clean viewing on-screen and managed to get the file size down to 14.12MB from 53MB (aka "Dial-up Hell").

The file should be available at:

http://www.mediafire.com/?wb9a9za447ysrxd

As before, would somebody confirm the download works and all is well? Thanks!

Works perfectly, and thanks again to you guys for making this available. That is my first look, on the last page, at the "amber handled" tools in their original state. Nice catalog.

Since I already posted it on Mediafire, I don't know why you did. Is there a big difference? I can't see it on Mediafire without downloading it, and I am at work now, so no downloads.

I posted it in a single PDF file...

It's much better as a single file.
