We’re closing out our reprint of the “Stanley Tools Catalogue No. 34,” and are selling remaining copies for $10 each, simply to free up space on the warehouse shelves. Every purchase comes with a free PDF copy – once the 450 (or so) print copies are sold out, we’ll continue to offer a free PDF of the 1914 catalogue here on the blog.
This catalog shows nearly every tool needed in a hand-tool shop 100 years ago, from the chisels to the butt gauges to every sort of plane in the company’s line. The text explains what each one is used for and how it functions differently from other similar tools.
The catalog also has fantastic exploded views of many of the complex tools, such as Stanley’s miter boxes, the multi-planes and handplanes. It’s a great resource to have on hand at a tool meet or antique market – not only to identify vintage tools, but to see if all the parts are intact.
If you are just getting into hand tools, we think you will find this catalog a delight to read, hold and learn from. The information in it is factual and straightforward – not the puffery you get from many modern catalogs. And if you collect or appreciate vintage hand tools, we think you will love this catalog, which reproduces the vintage drawings with remarkable clarity.
Once these are gone, we are not reprinting. So get it now or forever hold your (Harvey) peace.

I have a lot of catalog reprints. Yours is one of the best quality. 10 bucks is a steal.
I am eternally happy to have a copy of the catalog! Thanks for stocking it all this time.
I have been eyeing this for some time, but I’m in Canada and Lee Valley doesn’t carry them, (I keep checking). If they aren’t moving fast enough with the lower price maybe you could let LV know, although at $10 it seems like they should move. If you sold the pdf for $10 I would have bought it long ago.
We’ll have the pdf up for free next week, I think
Okay, I ordered it, not because I need it, but because I think it will make a nice reference keepsake for storing along with my old tools in my Dutch tool chest. And I admit your post had me googling for the meaning of “butt gauge”. Turns out it has nothing at all to do with what I was thinking.
My laugh for the day. Thanks! Makes me feel better about my New Years resolution (guess what!!)
Are these sold out now?
