    Mark Stansbury (creator) posted on this (his) link on another site. This is a treasure trove of resource material, catalogs and the like for anyone that appreciates, uses, collects or researches old tools.
    Kudos to him for his vast work...I've C&P his comments from another site.

    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.
