This is a listing of my holdings/resources in print, reprint or digital form. Digital copies will be links to my download page or where the copy I have is hosted. Arranged alphabetically by manufacturer/brand if applicable or by topic if not. This list will have redundant entries with the Known Catalogs and Saw Literature pages, but there may be omissions from one or the other so check them all.

Clicking on a (digital copy) icon will take you to the download page for it. Many of these are third-party, use at your own risk and responsibly. In general the file is a PDF. If there are multiple sources, they will be listed:
1: 2:1: With notes about 2: the different links
As I have copies of all these, let me know if the resource disappears so I can make a copy available.
If you have an old (pre-1930s) catalog or book on tools or woodworking let me know. I enjoy making these resources available on the internet. I would love to borrow your copy or will considers trades and purchases. Contact me for details.
